I Glow With Who I am 

This is me! In all my glory, in my happy place where all my worries disappear, and I am just me. There are no labels here, no doubts! I do not bear a mark on my forehead saying I am infertile. I am a complete woman enjoying her life to the fullest.

A big lesson I have learnt and made part of my being is that it is important to share our stories to help ourselves heal while educating others. Too often, mistakenly indeed, I have stayed silent in my shame, perpetuating lies in my head thinking that keeping quiet is a sign of strength. I have since realised I was wrong.
