Don't think you're lucky? Think again...

I used to think people who got pregnant right away were so lucky!
And then I thought, wow, people who got pregnant within a year are so lucky!
And then I thought DEFINITELY women who got pregnant on their first IVF attempt are so lucky!
And then I thought if you can get pregnant within 3 IVF's then you are definitely lucky!
Then I thought people who adopt are so lucky!

Now I think if I ever get a baby through adoption I will be so lucky! HA!

So if you take are walking around like a zombie because your kids kept you up all night, or you have throwup on your best sweater, or you need to make 8 dozen cookies for the bakesale tomorrow, or you have a household full of phlegmmy know what I say?

So you know i sat down and read them from start to finish. It is pretty powerful stuff Lis. I laughed, I cried.... But most of all I feel admiration for how you and Chris have handled all these #*&$* obstacles. You always have been a straight shooter but to be so honest about an extremely personal and emotional struggle - well hat's off to you. I don't think I could do it. While I knew most of your trials and tribulations - reading about them brought them more to life for me - i know that is sort of backwards but there you are.

OK so, I may (occasionally) fall into the complaining category a la your most current post - but I never forget how fortunate we are.

And to you I say dare to dream my friend.
