Campaign Story

“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding,
shame can’t survive.”-Brene Brown. Never could we have imagined that it would be this hard to conceive. My name is Tran and my husband is Somath. We have been together ever since we met in high school in 2001. I can truly say that he is my whole heart and soul and I, his. Growing up in a traditional Asian household, I was told that life doesn’t actually begin until after you’re well into your career and then you can start thinking about getting married and having kids. So that was my mindset: graduate high school, get into college, graduate college, look for a job, start your career, save enough money to buy a house, buy a house, get married and then have kids. All in that order. Looking back, it felt like a checklist. I graduated high school, got into college, graduated college, looked for a job, started my career as a nurse, saved enough money to buy a house, got married and now, we are just waiting for our little miracle. I knew that our chances of conceiving were much lower as my age got higher, so after multiple miscarriages, I knew that we needed to explore other options. We went through a fertility clinic in the Bay Area, where we received some of the best patient care, but also, where we received the worst news. Our treatment had failed. We were back to square one. We were devastated. I felt defeated and inferior. Infertility is something a lot of people don’t talk about because of the shame and the guilt behind it. When my treatment failed, I kept it from my friends and family because I felt ashamed. I felt like I was letting everyone down. I felt like I wasn’t worthy. A lot of negative emotions surfaced and I spiraled down a rabbit hole. A hole that my husband eventually helped me out of. I realized that it wasn’t just happening to me; it was happening to him also. It was happening to a lot of people. We weren’t alone. There are people fighting the same battle and I knew that we couldn’t give up on our dream of having a baby. So here we are, on this great platform, sharing our story, and if you can, we hope you will find it in your heart to help us get our little miracle. Thank you.
