Inspired by Jan, I have begun poring through my blog archives to recount my struggle with infertility in poetry form. So far, I’ve written two. She is a published author; her book is a series of poems that details a painful fifteen year chapter in her life and her subsequent restoration through her faith. Each poem tells the story of an event and moves you through her life, one poem at a time so poignantly that you can feel the depth of emotion in every word.
I am far from being an accomplished poet, but perhaps this topic which is so close to my heart will help me stick with it to its completion. Even if nothing becomes of the anthology of poems, maybe someday Baby Champuru will be able to read and appreciate what her parents went through so that there could be a “Baby Champuru.”
