The End

Sweet Blog Readers,

The time has come to end this blog.  After all, it was written in pursuit of parenthood, and parenthood we have found (at long last).  The purpose of this blog was to share with our cherished baby our journey to find him or her.  This story of how Katelyn came into our family is over, but the story of her life as my daughter and mine as her mother, is just beginning.

I want to thank you readers from the bottom of my heart for your love and support over these last many years.  I have laughed and cried as I read your comments and I can not express what it has meant to me to have such wonderful people lift me up in hard times and celebrate with me during the good ones.  I am indebted to you forever.

To my bloggy friends, I am continuing to follow your blogs.  I know I don't always comment, but I am always reading.

To new readers, I hope my journey helps you in some way.  I am leaving these old posts up here for that very purpose.

And for those still fighting the good fight, I love you.  You are inspiring.  I cry with you and I am cheering for you.  I pray someday you will find joy that far surpasses the pain and I hope you will share the beauty that is parenthood with me. Infertility never goes away, and you never forget the pain, but what waits on the other side is indescribable!

I wish you all a Happy New Year and a 2012 that brings you everything your heart desires.

Much love,
(and Katelyn too!)

Congratulations on your gorgeous daughter! I'd just like to say thank you for recording your infertility journey so eloquently, and for sharing your journey. I'm a late joiner to this blog, and have been busy catching up. Your lovely words have helped me through my journey immensely, I'm sure you have helped many others also.

Enjoy the time with your precious miracle, and I hope that everyone following your blog can have the same amazing outcome.
