on infertility

My good friend Amy has decided to begin posting every Thursday on infertility.
I applaud her, and I support her. It is a brave venture.
This topic is painful, and emotional, and often completely misunderstood.
She is taking this on because women need other women.
The Sister Hinkley quote at the top of Amy's latest post is exact truth.

I was also happy to see that Mormon Mommy Blogs 
has recently added an Infertility section.
There is one blog on this list. 
Its called Beyond the Rain, and you should go check it out.
She has a link to this article which you really should read,
Please take some time to check it out.

Thanks for posting Heather.

Is this my new vendetta? To spread the infertility word?

:D I think everyone is curious about it---people just don't know how to talk about it. That was a great article, by the way.

The first time I read that article I heard about it from mrs. r, from the r house. I really love it. It tells people what NOT to say in a very tactful manner. It's great for those who don't quite know what to say.

Thanks for adding my link BTW, you are too sweet. It's crazy how many women I have linked up with who are experiencing the hardship of infertility and the pain of miscarriage, etc, through a blog. It's nice to know we have somewhere to go to band together a little bit.
