I found this in my blog travels today. Infertility/Adoption Essay Contest
I am aware that I am not a writer. I am a scientist by heart. My writing is more like lab results. Precise and to the point, no elaboration at all. But for some reason this tugged at my heart. Not sure why, maybe because we are coming up on March. March was the start of our infertility journey, and somehow it all came full circle when Ryan was born in March, 5 years later.
Infertility never truly leaves you. Pregnant and even with toddler in tow at the bookstore, I would pick up a new infertility book and scan it. Something that profound changes you forever but still for some reason it is not mainstream conversation. It is still a conversation for back rooms and hushed voices. That needs to change.
So, if I do end up writing something, I may post here first, get some feedback first before sending it on.
Of course that all depends on if I can find some time between now and the 18th when the contest closes.
