It’s a rollercoaster of emotions.ReplyCancel

  • Becky Ritchey - Thank you for sharing. I’m 63, went through infertility treatment in my early 30s, and still never got pregnant. Friends sympathized and prayed for me, but they were all having babies. I had no one who knew how I felt and there were no books on the subject. (I’m writing a book now.) For those who try and fail to ever have children the pain continues because there are no grandchildren. I’m still seeking answers.ReplyCancel

      Your story hurts my heart for you. I am sorry sweet friend. Please let me know when you are published I would love to check out your resource.ReplyCancel
