Catching Our Rainbow

Hoping for a rainbow after the storm…


on December 18, 2012

I’m having a hard time finding the joy right now, so I’ve been pretty dependent on inspirational quotes and bible verses to encourage me. I have multiple sticky notes on my monitors at work, and I have a “Secret” board on Pinterest called “IF/Loss.” Don’t pretend like you don’t have one. I’m always encouraged when Storkchaser over at Dog Mom Chasing the Stork posts inspirational photos, so I figured I would share some that have helped me. I hope they help you too.


always try again

at least it makes you smile for a second. :)

not your identity

Never let the odds stop you.

I refuse to be reduced by my inability to have children.

I need to make a sign and hang it where I will see it everyday!

I tried to link to the original site for each of the pictures so you can click on them to get to the source, but since I got them all from Pinterest, a few had broken links that didn’t work. You can’t say I didn’t try. Have a lovely Tuesday, everyone.

    Thanks for the inspirational quotes! They can never hurt ;)
    I hope you feel better soon. Big hugs to you, my friend! xox

  2. I get this. I get every last bit of it. The joy seems so far away, so unreachable…instead only the feelings of grief, numbness, and longing fill those voids waiting desperately to be filled the hope of child growing within. I pray that God would reveal himself to you… ever near, ever present. I pray that He would help your Hope and JOY to grow strong even in this time of waiting. And above all, I pray that He would BLESS you with a child of your own very, very soon. May His perfect timing be ever so near for you. Take care and HUGS!

  3. Wow, I love some of these! Thanks for sharing. I found you through Gator Girl’s site and so glad I did. We are currently going through IVF right now (on the 2ww) and infertility has been by far the hardest journey I have ever been on. It has forever changed me.

    So glad I found you and can’t wait to follow your journey to your rainbow!

    Now, off to catch up on your journey…
