You Are Not Forgotten

You are not forgotten All of my infertile friends Ones waiting on tests to start a cycle Ones waiting on surgery to start a cycle Ones waiting on menstration to start a cycyle Ones waiting that are in limbo Ones in the two week wait Ones deciding whether or not to continue Ones deciding how or if they want to build their family Ones doing IUI Ones doing IVF Ones doing donor egg Ones doing donor sperm Ones doing FET Ones doing the paperchase Ones waiting on referral Ones waiting for the call to bring their baby home Ones waiting for a natural mother to choose them to parent their child Ones waiting and wondering when it will be their turn I love you all. I know how hard this weekend can be for many. Please know that you are not forgotten.

  1. Thanks Julie! I hope the day is great for you! (I'll be in the Caribbean so don't feel too bad for me. ;-) )

  3. Julie that is so sweet.

    Just a few days ago I found myself wondering if I can even enjoy my first mother's day as a mom. I have spent mother's day crying and feeling down for YEARS, and find it hard to believe that I could ever enjoy a day that brought me so much pain in the past.

  4. Thanks, Julie - Very considerate. Have a WONDERFUL Mother's Day with Dylan.

    Ok, on a completely unrelated note, my "word verification" below had the word "turd" in it and that made me laugh :)

  8. Yeah, what you said! I definitely can't help thinking of all the people still on the other side. I'm secretly pulling for all of them.
