You can't make friends on the internet???

Some of my friends and family think I am a little nutty when I talk about the very wonderful and close friends I have made via the internet. I myself would have laughed at the idea of making true friends online a few years back. I thought only losers and misfits joined buddy groups and went on forums. I have luckily learned that is not the truth.

About two years ago I realized that getting pregnant was not going to be as easy for me as it was for some. That is when I found a website called "Fertility Friend." At first it just provided me a place to chart my daily temperature, medications, doc appointments and other TTC things. I quickly found wonderful forums where women could post questions and find answers from women who were living with the same fate as them. After a few months of regular posting I thought about venturing into the unknown world of buddy groups. I got brave one day and posted a "recruitment ad" on one of the forums. I believe I was looking for other 20somethings, TTC with no kids. I was then blessed to find some of the most amazing women I have ever known. We learned about each other, shared with each other, felt each others elation at good news and we cried together at bad news. Over these two years or so we have changed our location online, some women have left us (fortunately one has come back!) but many of us have remained together. I have always known that no matter what I was going through, they would "GET IT." If no one else did, they would. And they still do.

I am a lucky woman to know them. A couple of them have become wonderful friends and one wonderful "farm girl" in particular is as close a friend as I have ever had. She has laughed with me and cried with me. The reason I was prompted to post this was a post she wrote, in part, about me (http://notsopatientlywaiting.blogspot.com/). The passion she has, the care and concern for me brings tears to my eyes. I guess I just wanted her and others to know what a valuable part of my life my "internet buddies" have become.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
