Meet Erica

We have a new story for our gallery. Inspirational Erica has overcome huge challenges in her life and shares her new start with our community here on Walk In Our Shoes.

We are hugely honoured to hear from any of our followers with their account of life with involuntary childlessness for any reason. Here are a few ideas to get you started

  • share the struggles
  • the agony of loss
  • advice on how you coped or if you're struggling, share your feelings
  • thank a friend for their support
  • tell us about a role model 
  • bust a myth, we're often told to 'just' try a fix like adoption, surrogacy or that it was the plan of a higher being, use Walk In Our Shoes to reply.

Remember that we all have a story to tell. 

You’re never going to kill storytelling because it’s built into the human plan. We come with it.
— Margaret Atwood

Next, paint your nails if you want, or put on your most comfortable or powerful shoes, the ones that bring you happiness, and take a photo with your phone. If you're not sure, then don't worry - I can use a stock image from a suitable site instead.

Copy your words into the form here and upload the photo if you have one. Then I'll publish for you.
