I am a 30 year old Christian, wife and stay-at-home mother. My husband, Russell, and I were married in 2004 and we welcomed our daughter, Chloe Jo, in 2009. My days are filled with laundry, crafting, cleaning, My Little Pony and family time. Life hasn't turned out exactly how I had pictured it, but I wouldn't change it for anything. Grab a coffee, sit down and enjoy my very blessed life.
"For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him." 1 Samuel 1:27

You're too Open
This is something I was told a couple of days ago about my blog. Well, first, this is my blog and you don't have to read it. Second, this is a history of my personal life and what is happening in it. Infertility is such a huge part of my life right now and I have decided to share my experiences with whoever wants to read about them. I hope to be able to touch someone's life the way others have touched mine. I want to spread the word about infertility; that it is a disease and that it is more common than we realize. 6.1 million couples in the United States deal with infertility in some form. So why is it that our culture keeps this on the down low? Our manhood/womanhood is not measured by what is or isn't going on in our reproductive track. Why are we so scared to talk about these types of troubles. If I had been more open two years ago, then I might already have a baby. I waited way too long before going to the doctor about our problems and there wasn't a good reason to wait. There is nothing to be ashamed of and we need to be proactive about Infertility.
