Into The Unknown
Yes, I sure did get this title from the soundtrack lead of the new Frozen movie. Yes, I sure did cry my eyes out while watching said new Frozen movie (Frozen 2). Yes, it so super cheesy of me to write a blog post based on all the feels I got because some cosmic connection…… Continue reading Into The Unknown
At this moment two thousand, nine hundred and twenty two days ago I was waking up to a new life. A second chance. At the time: a painful, empty, sad second chance.

There have even been some…… Continue reading Can I see?

Not only was it Mother’s Day, it was also my “full term” date (I would have been 38 weeks pregnant). So, with…… Continue reading Leaving it all behind for what’s ahead
National Infertility Awareness Week
In honor of NIAW this coming Monday, 4/22, I wrote the following entry. It is being nominated for the “Hope Award” for best blog, via the RESOLVE organization. I could win a trip to NY to speak about my story & infertility if I win! Fingers crossed… I strongly believe that women are the strongest…… Continue reading National Infertility Awareness Week
