What IF??

I saw this and after convincing myself I needed to watch it regardless of my fear, I watched it. Four times. I cried and I still have chills. The world is full of what if's but for those of us who suffer from it, IF is more than a question, its a state of being, a disease, and a massive hurdle we must get over even if we fall. IF: InFertility. Watch this and share it. It's beautiful AND heart-wrenching.

Thanks for posting this Rachelle. It was hard for me to watch too, but we need to get the word out there to those who don't understand how hard it is.

Hang in there. You're amazing.

I'm so sorry that made you upset hun. However, I am also asking myself that "what if" question many times. I will pray for you that a miracle will happen for you. If you ever need a shoulder, I'm here (at least through a computer screen) <3

An interesting video... I liked the conclusion and was hoping it didn't go somewhere totally sad. My own chances at infertility seem to be on the rise and even though I'm not sure I want biological children, I'd like that choice to be mine, not my body's. So thanks for posting this. My thoughts are with you. (*sends good vibes*)

Hi darlin...
What IF you are one day blessed with a child? What IF now is just not the right time? What IF I'm really sorry that I can't truly understand because I've never been in that situation, but I will pray for you and your sweet husband :)

Wow this made me cry, and made me even more thankful. I have to agree with Ashleigh. Although, I really do hope that one day insurance companies will help women who want fertility treatments but can't afford them.

Very moving video. I didn't struggle with infertility although I did have 2 miscarriages, but I didn't get married until I was older and so I wondered if I would ever have my own children. I hope you know that we are behind you in every way and I am absolutely convinced that you will be parents! Trust God and His timing- even though it is hard!
Love you much!

My gosh.
That was......
It had me tearing up.
I'm only 19 and I have dreams.
This is amazing.

And yeah...my mom's best friend from college, her husband left her for a younger, fertile woman.
So sucky. :P
