You start off the journey with faith. And when all is said and done and your babies have arrived, it’s easy to look back and see the spiritual strides you made and the faith you expressed.
But what about the middle of the journey? What about in the trenches? What keeps you going in the thick of the monotonous heartache? Do you have the faith to keep going through “the middle?”
I would like to say that I do but I’m not sure that has always been the case. I think my faith ebbs and flows. The struggle to keep faith and hope alive has always been part of my journey and to date, has always been rewarding.
Today Hilary Weeks released the following video from her new album.
When I was asked to review it a couple weeks ago, I wasn’t prepared for the flood of validating tears that came. If the journey of getting your babies here has been or is a struggle, you’ll see exactly what I mean. You’ll see yourself in this video.
Faith in the MiddleNEW MUSIC VIDEO! We thought long and hard about the story this song could tell. We decided on this because either you’ve been through it or you know someone who has. Whatever you might be struggling with I hope this reminds you to stay strong, hold on to hope and have faith in the middle.

The tears on the couch when everyone is gone? That is all of us on this infertility journey.
I was grateful that the video didn’t end in a positive pregnancy test. For so many of us, that’s not how the story plays out.
I also appreciated how they represented BOTH hopeful parents grieving differently, but both grieving and caring for each other.
What did you think? Did this relate to your story?
