My hair is a super-frazzled, frizzy mess. My skin is flaky and dry and I find myself doing the silliest things that make no sense at times. I feel like I've lost myself a bit lately and am looking in the window watching myself act out this strange scene of a movie. Then I realize... We are just a few days away from meeting our embies. The things I've been going through since October have all been for a reason, and that reason is coming up for a second time this weekend! We hope and pray, and beg and plead that the current sufferings of side-effects from meds and emotional ups and downs are for a reason.
I've been fighting to stay healthy despite a myriad of illnesses going around in our area as well as in my childcare. Thankfully the time has gone fairly fast with the holidays taking up so much of December and the beginning of January. We are super excited to have nice hotels to stay in thanks to the generous gift from a friend. Just one less worry to have plaguing our thoughts. Again we've been completely stunned by the kindness of others and the gifts of funds as well as MANY prayers sent heavenward for us. These little babes don't even realized how loved they are, I hope someday they do.
Along with meeting more women who are also going to be transferring at the NEDC this week and next, it's been exciting to see more articles and stories on social media coming out about families who are being blessed BOTH ways through embryo adoption and donation. Please pray that we would be able to stay healthy and strong as we work through the details of travel and also the difficult shots I have to receive twice a day.
This note by Ann Voskamp is hanging over my lovely "shot station" right now...I love it.
Being organized helps a little bit, at least I like to think it does!
