A Heartfelt Mother’s Day Letter From Renee Anthony

Mother’s Day has a whole new meaning for me today than it did just 5 years ago. For nearly 7 years, I dreaded Mother’s Day. It was a painful reminder of how my body refused to do what it was designed to do…procreate. Month after month disappointment set in as we tried to have kids. After being diagnosed with endometriosis there was an answer tied to the reason. From commercials on TV to church services and mom stories amongst friends on Facebook, I loathed Mother’s Day. It was like salt being thrown into a wound. There was shame and even jealousy wondering when it was my turn to become a mom.

It wasn’t until the year we decided to reach out and seek help from Dr. Singleton that Mother’s Day turned from shame, rejection and jealousy to hope. Hope and faith that I could be fixed. Hope that someone could treat infertility with specific advancements that would result in a beautiful baby I could love. And it did. Twice!

Now Mother’s Day has a whole new meaning for me. I see it from both sides. Compassion for those who pray and long for the day they too can become a mom, and thankfulness that I am blessed to have two beautiful boys of my own made possible by Dr. Singleton and the staff at The Fertility Center of Charleston (FCOC). I now relish every moment as a mom because I know firsthand of the struggles and journey it took to get here and the pure love I have for the people at FCOC who helped me accomplish my dreams. Let’s change the course for you–spend this Mother’s Day working towards your goal of being a mom and make an appointment with Dr. Singleton.
