Truth in Trying: Renee Chou shares her story of infertility

Posted May 23

WRAL's Renee Chou and her daughter, Elsa.

Renee Chou has a poignant and personal story on WRAL-TV tonight about infertility.

Here's what Renee writes about her precious daughter and family:

At times, being a mom still seems surreal to me, because there was a time when my husband and I thought maybe we weren’t ever going to be able to have a child.

We waited three-and-half years for Elsa – three-and-a-half years of stress, anger, sadness, resentment and heartbreak when our dreams of parenthood did not play out the way we assumed they would. 

One out of every eight couples trying to conceive is infertile. And we were that one in eight.

She'll share more about her own journey with infertility on WRAL-TV. At 5 p.m., she'll talk with one local couple, whose path to parenthood took five years. At 6 p.m., she'll look into the financial burden of infertility.

I know so many women struggle with infertility. And many think they are alone, especially as friends, family and co-workers welcome their own little bundles of joy. I'm so thankful for people like Renee who are brave to share their own story and provide some hope for women and families out there who are struggling right now.
