I took “The Pledge” last night… Will you?

So... What is "The Pledge" you ask? The pledge is a promise to...

  * Recognize that infertility is a disease that affects 1 in 8 couples of childbearing age.
  * Raise awareness through conversations about infertility with friends and family.
  * Show compassion to others who are diagnosed with infertility.
  * Get more involved with RESOLVE's advocacy, awareness or education efforts.
  * Use RESOLVE's resources for myself or refer others in need to RESOLVE.
  * Help people diagnosed with infertility find the resources and support they deserve.
  * Stay connected to RESOLVE, even if I have reached resolution.

Click on the RESOLVE link (scroll half way down) to enter your information and make the pledge!

As a result of a promise that I already made to myself, I was working quietly to try to find ways that I could help other women through this project. I am committing to be more vocal about IF. I believe we need to join together and support one another to get the word out. There is power in numbers. I believe WE can make changes about the way infertility is perceived by insurance carriers, government and overall socially!

But think about it this way, can you imagine if you had the power to help someone realize their dreams of becoming a mother (or father) because of something you said or did to inspire them? I hope that I can touch just one life in that way.... how amazing!!!

You don't need to donate lots of money or time to advocate for infertility. Just find a way that fits into your schedule to show support in YOUR own way!
