A reader who wishes to remain anonymous has been trying to have a baby for a few years, with no success. She just got the diagnosis of having the MTHFR gene. She's feeling tired and like she's been running a marathon that never ends and just looked up to realize she's at the bottom of a tall mountain that she now has to climb, but at the same time hopeful that now that she knows what's wrong it can be fixed.
I know a lot of you have gone through infertility, in small ways or large. And I'm sure those of you who haven't experienced difficulty (or impossibility) conceiving and/or miscarriage have close friends or family members who have.
I know that there's nothing we can *do* for Anonymous. We can't tell her what will happen, or when it will happen. But I'm hoping we could maybe each give her a little gift that she can stick in her pocket and pull out when she gets tired and needs a little strength. So if you can, please write something. About your own experience with infertility. About how you made it through. About how your friends dealt with it. Or just something kind.
