This post is not about me. This is a post about those who have written about their "What IFs".
Since I was out of town during most of NIAW (National Infertility Awareness Week), I have finally caught up on reading NIAW posts. I had more than a week of reading to do.
All I can say is wow! Some of "What If" posts have really touched me. I realize that many of you that read my blog are bloggers yourself, and have most probably seen or read a lot of what I am about to share. But I also know there are those reading that are not bloggers or are not dealing with infertility. So it would be careless of me if I didn't share the following with you.
There have been so many incredible posts that were written in honor of NIAW that have really touch my heart. Many have expressed so many feelings that I have not been able to put into words myself. So I would like to share a few of them here. Please realize that these are just of few of the hundreds of "What If" posts of Project IF.
If you don't have time to read these now, please make sure you take some time and come back to read these later. It really does help put into words what infertility is, what it means to those of us who go through it, and how it affects us.

And finally, check out Keiko's (from Hannah Wept, Sarah Laughed) video. She actually "came out of IF closet" during NIAW. You can read her post about it here.

A heartfelt thanks to those that have shared. Thanks for putting into word many things that we IFers feel.
Again, please check out the rest of the "What If" list.
