1 Year Blogoversary

One year ago, I started this blog. Here is my first post. I can't believe how much has happened and how much things have changed. It crazy to think about everything DH & I have been through in this past year.

I started this blog in order to document our journey though IVF and hopefully the pregnancy there after. We got through our transfer and we did get pregnant, but last summer ended horribly after losing our second pregnancy. In the past year, we've had two m/c & two more surgeries, gone through countless medications & ultrasounds, completed several IUIs and one FET, spent too much money and put way too many extra miles on our vehicles. Why did we do all of this? We want to be parents; it's that simple.

In the last part of this year, there has been some happiness and some relief from all of this hardship. We have started a new journey, our journey through adoption. It's a tough journey also, but we know now that some way, somehow we will be parents, one day. It may not happen tomorrow, next month or this year, but it will happen. And, that's really exciting.

Congrats on 1 year!! I'm sorry your journey has been so difficult but I'm glad you know you will be parents. It's very true. You'll be excellent parents because your journey to get there was not easy. Congrats on sending your draft of your profile as well!! :)

I hope that your 2nd blogoversary can be all about your sweet baby! It's been a long, tough year for you and it's definitely time for things to get better.

I know that feeling - looking back and wondering how the heck that much CRAP could happen in a year?! It's crazy! That said, adoption is a beautiful thing, bringing hope back into our lives. You WILL be parents. There is nothing stopping people like you and me who desire nothing more than to be mommies. Heaven help the person who tries to stop us:). Can't wait to read all about your new baby at your 2 year blogoversary:).
