As I mentioned I have not dealt with infertility personally but I do have a very dear friend Krystal who spent the 7+ years on her journey to becoming a mom. As a friend, I did my best to be there for her, to walk along side her, to support her, and to just listen. I realize now that Krystal struggled far more than I could have ever imagined. I shared a little about Krystal and her husband Brandon's story of infertility just over a year ago, looking back now I can't believe how much has happened since that point and how far they have come, personally and in their journey to having a child. There were so many heart aches and disappointments along their journey, but there was also glimmers of joy and hope.

This video helped me understand so much, as a friend who has not gone through the trials and tribulations of infertility I realize just how badly Krystal, and so many other women struggling just want to be a mom.
If you weren't aware this week is National Infertility Awareness Week and Amanda over at A Royal Daughter blog is sharing her personal story of infertility all week I hope you'll go by her blog to hear her heart about her personal struggles.
