Today we kick off National Infertility Awareness Week. Up until about 12 years ago I had no idea what a profound effect infertility would have on my life. Since then it has been a constant companion, and not the kind you want to keep you company. Through my journey I have been tossed on waves of emotion, poked and prodded, alienated and felt like I could not go on.
But then something amazing happened. One day I woke up, still me, still infertile, but now I had a mission. My hope and goal, and quite possibly the reason I’ve been put on this earth, is to help others who have or are living the challenges that I have faced. I want you to know that you are not alone. That you are beautiful. That you are precious. And that you are a survivor.
My name is Marcy Hanson, and I am a warrior.
