This past Sunday (September 21st) was my birthday, and I celebrated 44 by walking a mile with hundreds of people determined to bring awareness to the frustration that millions face when they try to get pregnant, but find themselves unable to bring healthy, full-term babies into the world (see more on Walk of Hope, sponsored by Resolve Infertility).
Not only did the “Seed Team” land in the top ten donations made to the Resolve charity, but also it was wonderful to bring information about The Seed Fertility Program to this crowd of people who really appreciated being introduced to something new that they can participate in to recover their power in this often disappointing and heart-breaking field.
I spoke to many people — doctors, women (some mothers, some still trying), husbands, nurses, program coordinators and actresses… all of whom know this subculture of women, and whom know how these women are working to turn their disappointments into opportunities to become a mother.
I left with gratitude in my heart, for my own two healthy, “against the odds” children, Kira and Jack. I also felt grateful that spiritual evolution is coming to this world of infertility. We are finally uniting – acupuncturists, massage therapists, doctors, authors, models – all of us are coming together – to help others keep the faith. The faith that with enough courage and determination, we can become parents… if that is what we set our sights on.
Blessings and continued support to those on the path to baby.
