Christmas is a horrible time of year for the infertile. It’s all about family and kids and happiness. I’ve spent the last few years just getting through the holidays and not enjoying them at all. Going through the motions really. I’m not going to tell any of you still in the trenches to “hang in there” or to be “patient” and keep fighting. I’m a realist and I know that not everyone gets a happy ending… and that sucks. And makes the holidays that much more unbareable. I’m eternally grateful to have the best Christmas present I could ever have. I am one of the lucky ones. To everyone out there, whatever you are battling, I wish you peace and for joy to find your heart.
