Last night, REDBOOK Magazine launched an infertility campaign called "The Truth About Trying." They're passionate about erasing the taboo of infertility and getting people to talk about it so that the women and men who are going through it can feel more supported
They came across my blog and asked me to be a part of their launch! I feel honored to be a part of this effort and feel so happy that I can share my message of hope with more people. They have listed my blog as one of the "Best Infertility Blogs" (yea!) & they asked me to share a 3 minute video telling "What I wish I had known about infertility..." Click here to see my video as well as videos from other women and celebrities, too. They hope that this campaign will inspire other women to create some videos of their own on REDBOOK'S YouTube page.
Also, from 2-3 pm EST today (Oct. 18, 2011), they will host a Twitter Chat all about infertility and why more people need to talk about it. The hashtag is #truthabouttrying. You can find them on Twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/
And, a very warm welcome to REDBOOK readers! THANK YOU for coming to my blog. It is my goal to inspire women & men all over the world who are facing trials. I promise to send many, many more positive posts your way!
Also, this is a brand new blog (just three weeks old today!) so it will be doable for you to catch up on some of the relevant previous posts, if you are interested. To get you started, here are a few recent posts you might enjoy:
