Thank You!

My goal for this week was that people who read my posts would, 1) feel more comfortable with those experiencing infertility, 2) know how best to be helpful and supportive, 3) understand what couples with infertility go through and 4) know what to expect if they find themselves in the same situation.

At times while doing these posts it has been difficult to be so honest about something this personal and painful, but the response has been overwhelmingly positive. I hope that my honesty in sharing our situation has been helpful and at times entertaining.

First, thank you for all the sweet, supportive comments and messages. An unexpected result of this week is that our situation is a little easier to deal with, knowing that we have the love, prayers and support of so many. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the sweet messages that have been sent to us :)

Thank you to Ally and Whitney for sharing their experiences. Its one thing to share your story on your own family blog or with close friends, and something else to put it out there on someone else's blog to share with strangers. Thank you ladies :)

Thank you to my wonderful husband for his post, The Male Perspective :) It helped me appreciate him even more for the great support and comfort that he is.

Lastly, I'm not usually overly sentimental, but I want to share a song. I had only heard it a few times when it played while I was on my way to the gym for the first time after my miscarriage. I sat in my car in the gym parking lot and sobbed through the song. I feel like it pretty accurately sums up how I feel about the child we lost, about our daughter, and about the children I know will one day be a part of our family.

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

P.S. Please disregard the Edward/Bella nonsense in the video :)

P.P.S. This will now be returning to our regular family blog :) You are all welcome to continue to read about our family's journey :)


  1. Hey Jessica! This is my first visit to your blog and I had no idea about your struggles with infertility. My husband and I have been TTC for two years and I just found out that my right fallopian tube is block and my left doesn't function properly. I too, Hate my fallopian tubes! haha.
    It's good to know that I'm not alone- sometimes I feel that way when everyone around me is able to get pregnant and have children. My Dr. just referred me on to a fertility specialist and my first appointment is on Wednesday. Wish me luck and thanks for sharing your story!

  2. I really like that song! But hated that it was all Twilighty. I'm going to love it anyway.
