This has been a hard week for me in terms of dealing with my infertility struggles. Usually I can keep a pretty good grip on my emotions when friends or family announce their pregnancies as I really am happy for them. I wouldn’t wish infertility on anyone so I am happy to see them excited about their new addition on the way.
Yet in the midst of the excitement for them, I feel an all to familiar pain in my heart as for a moment my mind flashes back to the negative pregnancy tests, fertility procedures, and finally sobbing in my doctor’s office as we discuss a hysterectomy. For a moment, I acknowledge that loss and allow myself to grieve. I allow the tears to flow and lift a prayer up to God asking for peace and comfort.
It is then that my thoughts turn to my beautiful daughter that I am so incredibly blessed to be called her mommy. It is then that I remember the day we got the phone call and my husband walked into my office with pink roses and announced we had a daughter. It is then I remember how it feels when she hugs me around the neck and says, “I love you Mommy!”
It is then that I realize it was worth it all.

I feel your pain. Much <3 and prayers!
So incredibly inspiring, on a very personal level for me. I needed to see a post like this today. Thank you! Hold that adorable little girl of yours tightly! 🙂
I am glad you were able to find some comfort in these words! (((Hugs)))
Love this post. You are the perfect mommy that God designed for her!
There is definitely no denying that God created the three of us to become a family!
She is so gorgeous! You’re a lucky mama, and she’s a lucky kiddo! So glad you have each other to bring all that extra joy.
Thank you so much! Its funny now that Abby is a little older we can see her becoming more like us in her mannerisms and how she talks! DNA not necessary! 🙂
Beautiful post! And a beautiful daughter! 🙂
Thanks! I find her quite beautiful as well 🙂
I cannot imagine the pain. I am so sorry and I pray that while you will never forget, but that you will heal.
Your little girl is absolutely beautiful.
