Before we continue any further through this journey, it’s important for us to acknowledge all of the love and support we have felt. To our family, our friends, colleagues, acquaintances and complete strangers: we cannot thank you enough. There has been an outpouring of encouragement and love. We don’t consider ourselves to be extremely religious people but I can tell you that I have never prayed more for anything in my life. To know that all of you have sent your positive words, thoughts and prayers our way makes us feel so blessed already. Whether we are nearing the end of our IVF journey, or this is just the beginning, I wanted you all to know just how thankful we are. You have made a difference in our lives and our hearts.
Our one year anniversary is coming up in a little more than a month and this first year of marriage has been an adventure. It’s not exactly what we expected. Luckily we love each other so darn much that all of this has only made us closer. We are hopeful that the two embryos we transferred last week have decided to stick with us. We love them so much. We feel like we know them and like our lives will be forever changed because of them.
Again, thank you for all of your support. I’m a ball of nerves tonight and am hoping for the best. I’ll be saying a few more prayers, because it can’t hurt, right?
