One Year Blogiversary!!!!

Today is the one year mark from when I started this blog. A year ago we were just about to start clomid. I honestly didn't think we'd be dancing with infertility very long. I figured that we were young, JW's numbers were good, nothing seemed to be wrong with me.....I figured we take a little clomid and make some babies.

Here we are a year later and starting on the journey toward IVF. What a difference a year makes.

It has been a long road. The journey has been tough....emotionally and physically. And although I'm longing for a baby even more now than I was a year ago I can't say that the journey has been all bad. We have learned a lot along the way. JW and I have grown closer together and closer to the Lord. I have learned so many things about my husband that I wouldn't have known if we'd gotten pregnant on our own. I've also learned so many things about God too. He is good....even when my arms ache to hold my baby and my eyes are swollen from all the crying and my heart hurts beyond belief....He is good. He is faithful.

I'm also so excited about all the women I've "met" on this path toward parenthood. I have drawn so much encouragement from reading your blogs. Thank you for encouraging me. I am also 100 times more informed about what exactly the reproductive system does and how exactly an RE manipulates it than I was a year ago. Thank you for educating me. Thanks for being my internet friends. I wish we could all go out to dinner.....and not talk about infertility at all.

I also want to say a special thank you to my sister. I'm pretty sure that she is one of the only people who reads my blog and knows me in "real life." Chris, I love you and you have been such a source of strength for me through this journey. Your own journey to build a family through adoption has amazed me. I'm so thankful that the Lord blessed me with a sister who is such a close friend. I'm excited about the possibility of our kids being so close in age.....Cousins who aren't 5-25 years apart in age?? Can you imagine all the fun they will have??

As good as this has been I honestly hope that this blog eventually closes because I've moved on to a mommy blog. But until then I'll keep blogging away. Dance on!!
