Let Freedom Ring
a blog by Genna Banafato, July 1, 2016
I always liked the Fourth of July. Warm summer nights, sitting on the grass with friends and family, maybe with a cold beer, the unmistakable sounds of the 1812 Overture and lots of fireworks.
Infertility has a way of seeping into every holiday, though. And when you look around you see strollers and kids on their dad's shoulders. Still that 1812 Overture, but the cannons sound more like the alarm on your biological clock than the punctuation of a musical stanza.
So, let's make this year about something new. Infertility has invaded every minute of your life… except for this day. Let this day be about the celebration it is. Enjoy your barbeque, have that cold beer. I know it's hard to push it aside, even for this one Monday. But try to let today be the day you declare your freedom from infertility, even if it's just for a few hours.
Let Freedom Ring.
