The holiday season and New Year, often associated with joy and celebration, can also be a time of heightened grief for many. While some are mourning the loss of family members after many years and cherished memories together, there are countless women grieving the children they have lost through miscarriage or stillbirth. Amidst this struggle, one woman is bravely sharing her story and offering support to others facing infertility and miscarriage.
Tanerra Willis, owner of Amazing Family Enterprises LLC, has triumphed over poverty, infertility, childhood traumas, and other systemic barriers.

In addition to being a certified pediatric registered nurse and certified CPR instructor, Tanerra is a devoted wife and mother. She finds joy in reading, music, and anything that brings laughter. While infertility is a part of her story, she refuses to let it define her or steal her joy. Throughout her journey to motherhood, she experienced embarrassment, shame, and guilt. However, Tanerra always had a deep desire to share her story in the hopes of helping others. Recognizing that her own experiences were not enough, she reached out to other women who were also unwilling members of the unwanted infertility club and asked them to contribute. The result was the powerful compilation, "Memoirs of Almost Barren Women: Our Journey to Motherhood," which aims to foster conversation, understanding, and support for those facing infertility.
