Show & Tell - And a year later...

...I'm still around in the blogosphere. Who would have thought? Those who know me well enough must find it strange that I've stuck to this blog for a whole year, albeit on & off, but still hanging in there. Journaling is really not my kind of thing.

"We read to know we are not alone"
C.S. Lewis

Infertility was the loneliest and most painful journey of life and only after conquering it did I realise how many other travellers there were out there. Thanks to Mel at Stirrup's, I have discovered that I am not alone, that others have walked or are walking the IF Camino. My blog has been the vehicle used to navigate the land of IF. I reached my destination 8 years ago, with the birth of the little guy, but the walk continues so that others may know that they are not alone.

Some say that infertility makes you a better person. I don't know about that. But if I am a better person, it is probably from reading all those amazing ALI blogs, - my source of inspiration, with so many lessons learnt. I am honoured to be part of this community.



My little guy insisted on adding this picture to the post. I couldn't refuse the request as he was the photographer today.

To see what the rest of the class is showing and telling, check out Mel's Show & Tell.

I really like that C.S. Lewis quote, so true, so true.

What I went through was so isolating - it really did help knowing I was not alone and that there were other women, sadly, who understood me.

I like the picture too - your photographer was absolutely right about adding it! :0)
