Coping with Infertility

This has been an interesting month. We have found out some more information about our infertility and will find out some more in a couple months. Great news! Information is always appreciated in our situation. I don't care if the answers lead to pregnancy or not, the knowing provides a huge comfort.

This month's LDS Ensign issue happens to have an article called "Learning to Cope with Infertility". It's a great article and I totally recommend it. In the past, I've been so turned off by stories where a couple miraculously ends up pregnant (spoiler alert!), with no medical intervention. Not so this time around. This month, for the first time in 4-5 years, I've felt hope. And peace. All of last month's panic and anxiety is completely gone. I feel blessed with the most beautiful feeling that everything is going to be ok.  Just this little feeling to sit back and be patient and to let God do his thing.

Aren't you glad you don't have to go through life alone? That's there's someone more powerful than you in control?

I am.

A Great Father

What makes a great Father? 
I think the two most important ingredients are
love and time.

This is an ode to my husband, the father of our son.

From the beginning,

I watched as you embraced your son and the role of Father.

You protect him,

You talk with him,

you cuddle with him,

you play with him,

you teach him,

you lift him up,

and comfort him.

I can already see that he wants to grow up to be just like you...

Happy Father's Day Gavin!

We love you!
