I was born and raised in India. I came to the United States in 2004 to pursue further studies and earned my Masters in Public Health and Doctor of Dental Surgery. I am a Dentist by profession. My husband and I have been married for 7 years and we knew from the very beginning that we will become parents one day. I loved to paint ever since I was a little girl. My dream of becoming a mother rekindled my interest in painting. Through this painting, I poured my heart on the canvas and expressed the loss and grief I was going through. My husband and I have been trying for many years to have a child. I went through all kinds of infertility treatments and never surrendered. I got pregnant two years ago but lost my triplets at 16 weeks. This painting is dedicated to my babies I couldn't hold in my arms but will forever be in my heart. I fought for them and I am still fighting to build a family of my own. Through this painting I'm saying a prayer for the women who struggle with infertility, for the women who have lost children, for us, for our tears, for our strength, for our wisdom, and for our lives.
