Alternative to Mothers Day - Raising Awareness about LTTTC
Hello my lovelies, I am sure that the UK Mother's Day is just as tough on all of you struggling to LTTTC as it is for me. To try and raise awareness of all us in the exclusive gang nobody wants to be part of I have come up with a facebook status regarding Mother's Day. Please feel free to share this on your walls or alter it in any way you would like;
For all of you celebrating Mother's Day this year - Hold your children close and never forget just how blessed you are. Spare a thought for those not quite as lucky as you, for those that have loved and lost and those that are struggling to start their family. Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples and yet is still thought of as taboo - Please help to raise awareness by placing this as your status if you know somebody that is still trying to realise that dream of a family.
For those that aren't overly keen on the whole 'please place this as your status' there is also;
Happy Mothers' Day to all the mums out there - hold your children close and never forget just how blessed you are. Spare a thought for those not quite as lucky as you, for those that have loved and lost and those that are struggling to start their family. Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples and yet is still thought of as taboo - This post is for all those out there who are still trying to realise that dream
Just a little something to proclaim that just because we aren't yet blessed with children, we are here and we do still count!
I posted this to facebook. I read it to df first and asked his opinion and he said to post it! If people ask questions then so be it. I feel better for doing something positive on such a crappy day! Thatnks Fiesty xxxx
Well I have a few 'likes' now, a couple from people who I don't know thier situation fully, but I know they are married and childless, so maybe its like a secret nod. Thank you. I even have had a friend repost, so the message is getting around.
I love this idea! Mother's Day is still 2 months away for those of us in Aus, but I remember clearly how I felt last Mothers Day. I don't have any UK friends on Facebook, otherwise I'd post it now, but I will definately keep this in mind and post it when the time comes.
