Thank you

For those who have left supportive comments, sent me private emails, or called to encourage me over the last week or so, I just want to say thank you.

I have mentioned it several times before: I never started this blog to receive sympathy or comments. It is a place to laugh and cry about the world of infertility. Someday, I hope my children will read this and know how much they are loved.

All of the support and encouragement that has come my way as a result of this blog has been unanticipated, but gratefully received. I fear I will never repay you for all the times you have lifted me up over the years. Some of you are dear, dear friends, while others I will never meet face to face. Regardless, you have touched my life and I am forever indebted. Thank you!

Congrats on sticking to your guns on YOUR blog. I completely understand all of your points. People have NO clue what infertility (secondary for me) unless they have gone through all of this. I am sorry anybody (self absorbed individual)made you apologize for your feelings and grief. This path you are on is HARD!All the cliches dont do anything but make us feel worse about our situation. Keep your head up and keep posting REAL feelings.

Just getting caught up. Sorry you had all kinds of blog drama - no one deserves that!

Hope you are doing well!

It has been too long since I last checked your blog, and now I am so sad I haven't been showing my support to you lately!

I am so sad that annonymous persons left ignorant and insensitive comments that were unfair and cowardly. That has happened to me on my own infertility blog earlier this year. It was so hard for me to forgive someone I could not even put a face to, especially when I was already aching so much over my trial. Sadly, there are those who do not realize that our blogging is simply meant to help us heal, and to help us carry on. In essence, it is an open journal. Unfortunately, there are people out there that feel they have a right to judge and even sometimes attack, when the right to pass judgement only belongs to the Savior, the one and only perfect being, and the one who gave us the breath to make a mistake, like a judgement, in the first place.

It took time and sincere effort and prayer to forgive the annyonymous commentor who deeply hurt me. Since then I have had a reoccurence or two, and I too chose to remove the annonymous comment option. I even considered making my blog private for a while, but was encouraged by my readers to keep it open and available, as they assured me it was needed by them and other infertile friends.

My prayers are with you. I know that without this forum to express my own feelings and sorrows and hopes in this long journey, I may not be moving forward at all.

Keep smiling and hoping,

I have been blog stalking for a while (I go to church with Amalia Cutts and she has your blog link on her site).

I haven't had to go through all of the infertility battles/trials that you have had to go through because I had a hysterectomy in March.

I know how hard and painful this whole process is. I just wanted to say that I love the caption under the pic of your hubby and you.

"Madly in love but sadly infertile"

That is so true! Hang in there and remember that even when you have a bad or "off" day, it will get better. At least that's what I tell myself ;-)
