Infertility is a long journey; it has felt like we have been dealing with it forever. We have been married 10 years and have been trying to start our family for 9 of those years.
I’ve hesitated to share our story because it doesn’t have the typical happy ending, but I’m sharing because that’s just a part of the infertility reality.
My husband and I got married in the fall of 2008. Our plan was to eventually have kids and we never thought twice about it being a big deal. I remember us talking early on in our marriage about how we wanted two or three kids because we each had two siblings and wanted our children to have similar experiences. The thought of having a family and being the Mom I always knew I wanted to be was exciting!
