Surrounded by love

Ben and I have decided to pursue the IUI and we are really excited for this next step! I want to share as much with you as I can, so I'll be doing what I'm calling "belated blogging." I'll write about experiences as I have them and then post about them a bit later, but I won't talk specific time frames. This allows me to really be in the moment, and then write about it and share it the best way I know how. Thanks so much for the support and understanding as I share! I can't wait to take you all with us on this journey! 

Throughout this IUI process I've talked about being ready for joy, building hope, finding a silver lining, and how medicine can be a little intimidating. But there's something I haven't talked about yet and I can't go one more minute without acknowledging it.

The love.

Oh my gosh, Ben and I are surrounded by love and that's never been more evident than right now. Comments on blog posts, texts, emails, cards, messages - all saying how exciting this is, and sharing your hope, and sending us prayers and good thoughts - it has blown us away.

Every day I get up and put on this necklace - I still don't know who it's from, but it means so much that someone sent it.

Every day I get some kind of message or text - anything from "thinking about you!" to "how are you doing?" to "sending so much love your way!"

Every. Day. 

I absolutely cannot express how moved and touched we have been to see this outpouring of love and support - I read Ben every comment on these posts, every email, every text message.

So from the bottom of our hearts thank you - for the love, the support, and for listening.

It takes a village - and I'm honored you're a part of ours.

Sometimes it takes a difficult time in your life to realize how many people willingly make up your support network. Learning to let them in. To lean on them. It's a hard lesson, but such a valuable one. So glad that you and Ben are feeling the love of your network. Totally deserved!
