Sharing intimate details about your life and experiences can incredibly daunting. Unveiling personal information can leave you feeling vulnerable, making it seem easier - and safer - to keep things locked inside.
At the same time, however, sharing your story can be incredibly freeing. It can take away the power and fear of the challenges you face, and it can help you realize your circumstances are only a small part of your identity. Equally valuable, sharing your story can offer encouragement to others who are facing similar challenges.
A growing number of women - and men - are speaking out about their experiences with infertility. One such woman is Melinda Davis, the author of the Fresh Conceptions blog. Melinda is now the proud mama of a beautiful little girl, but if you start reading from the beginning of her blog, you will recognize the pain, doubts, and questions shared by everyone who has walked this path. Melinda speaks beautifully about her experience and the faith that guided her through it all. The positive outcome she found offers encouragement for everyone believing in a happy ending of their own.
