My Story

How I rediscovered wholeness

I understand the grief of childlessness

because I walk the same path.
I know the feelings of unworthiness and emptiness as you watch others have and raise children.

Sometimes it’s difficult for people to understand.

It can be isolating when people don’t see your sadness as serious or get just how deep the feelings of loss go.

Many people assume you’re childless by choice and made “selfish” decisions. Others ask questions like “When are you going to have children?”

When I was a single woman, it became clear that having children was not an option because of my circumstances. It was hard to wrap my head around the fact that this was it.

That grief resurfaced when I married later in life. Until then, I had always imagined a sort of life order that felt right for me: meet someone, get married…have kids.

Accepting a future I had not imagined or wanted was painful, but it was a start.

A start to forging my own path onward.

I’ve come to realize grieving the loss of that future was essential to creating my own path to healing. Grief isn’t linear and triggers can set it off again. But through my journey, I’ve learned to navigate them and care for myself in the process.

Through it all, I found myself.

I’ve created a life that is joyful and meaningful—without biological children.

From that experience, I’ve developed a passion for helping other women understand their innate worth and live a fulfilling life.

I would be honored to be part of your journey.
