Mother’s Day is a day that people look forward to every year. In Minnesota, there’s meaning beyond motherhood as Mother’s Day usually coincides with the fishing opener and spring entering full bloom.

What’s not to love about Mother’s Day? Plenty, if you’re among the many women and 1 in 8 couples who are in a battle with infertility. This time of year can be extremely painful for people who have thus far been unable to conceive, people struggling to expand their family, and those who have lost children or mothers prematurely. Thing as seemingly innocent as advertisements for Mother’s Day gifts or seeing Mother’s Day cards fill up the aisles at the drug store can cut like a knife.
