I’ve spent hours cultivating, cropping, downloading and searching for the photos shared in my #MoreThan1in8 project. I’ve seen your smiling faces over and over throughout these last few weeks. I’ve read your brave words along with those beautiful pictures as something took root inside of me.

A family.

A family I never wanted. A family no one ever wants. A family we wouldn’t ever be without again.

Most of us will never meet in person. Many of us will struggle with one another’s happy endings to the infertility journey. Some of us may even leave the family.

Still, we will be family. Family who have survived the awful depths of infertility. Family, who I hope, will now choose to thrive through and after the journey, especially by sharing our stories and asking to be seen.

Because we deserve to.

Because we must.

Part 3 of my #MoreThan1in8 campaign for National Infertility Awareness Week is here!

Let us be seen.
