“Love You Forever”. You may think it’s an endearing statement, but what we are referring to is Robert Munsch’s book.
Today starts the beginning of National Infertility Awareness Week. And, you’re probably wondering why we are posting about it. We’ll tell you more about that in a few.
But first, we want to ask you if you know the REAL story behind “Love You Forever”?
If not, read on…
The words to “Love You Forever” were originally written by Mr. Munsch to help him grieve the loss of his (& his wife’s) two (stillborn) children.
“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, As long as I’m living, My baby you’ll be.” Those words were written & said over & over again by Munsch as a way of coping with their incredible loss.
Although the story written inside the pages of the book don’t tell that story, knowing the true meaning has always made it a special one for us.
Now for our story…
Although her story has a happy ending (a daughter born via IVF), she will forever show her support to those still walking the infertility journey & encourage women (who are navigating the IF journey and/or have experienced loss) to use their voice.
This week we are doing our part by encouraging you to join the orange movement on Wednesday, April 22nd and rock your ORANGE gear to show your support of National Infertility Awareness Week®.
