Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a family and portrait photographer based in Washington Dc. I am a Christian, wife, and identical twin. I love lilacs, candles, rainy days and honesty. I love finding joy in simple things.
I had the honor of hosting the third Infertility Event this past month with my twin sister. It’s a day where women come together and share in a safe place about their journey with infertility. I am always amazed at the difference stories that we hear over the course of the day. Some women have never had a child, others have lost several and still others struggle with secondary infertility. Each lady present has different things to work through in her story but we have a connection right away.
I’ve found creating a safe space where you truly understand each other is the first step to healing and processing the pain. It’s a comfort just being together and understanding that we aren’t alone. Infertility is very isolating and I always come away from these days encouraged.
We hosted it at Grayce Gardens this year and it was simply beautiful. We didn’t think through how it would feel in a greenhouse in the summertime. It. Was. Hot! But we all sweated through it and had a wonderful time just the same.
When I look at the group of women who were brave enough to attend, I see such courage. It’s hard to admit that you are even struggling with infertility much less show up with an entire group as a witness. But they came. Like they do every year and I’m so grateful. This year half of the group was sent by friends who covered the cost of their day. It thrills me to know there are friends who care and support each other in this way. It can be difficult to know how to enter into someone’s pain or even try to understand when you aren’t in the same situation.
If you are a woman who struggles with infertility, please know you aren’t alone. ❤️
