NaBloPoMo - Day 5 - hope, reassurance and possibility

    JCK, I can just picture it. Truly. Love the installment, waiting for the next!

  2. WorksforMom - thanks for your heartfelt comments. I appreciate it so much.

  3. it. I'm sending out fertility mojo to everyone on the planet. Go babies!

  4. Ooh, I love a post with a cliffhanger. Can't wait to hear more.

  5. Your story is like watching a movie - I don't want the story to end until I find out everything that happens. I'll be back to read the next chapter. Take care.

  6. I'm with you! It took a long time, lots of meds, and the reproductive endocrinologist for us to get our Boy Wonder, too. I'm so PROUD to see you showing adoption as an option. So many children need homes. It was the ONLY next step we considered.

    Thanks for visiting. I'm a big fan of WWM, too.
