Merry Christmas!!

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart. Some days I am not sure if anyone reads this silly thing and I wonder if it is worth my time. Then I remember that there are at least 5 people who check in regularly. ;>) Blogging has been such a cathartic exercise for me over the past couple years. I thought with the girls I wouldn't have time or anything of value to say but I find that I NEED to jot my thoughts down regularly. It has been a great outlet. Thanks for reading!

I hope everyone has a blessed and happy Christmas. I hope your day is filled with love, family and remembrance of what the day is really about. Thank you God for sending us your son.

Merry Christmas Kristen! I'm so happy for you and your family... It is definitely a blessed Christmas for you - you finally have two of the world's most wonderful gifts! :-) I'll also keep reading as long as you keep writing... Like you said it's therapeutic and in the future you'll appreciate having kept a record of your thoughts!

Hi-You don't know me but I read about you and your family. I know you from Kristin S. Anyway, I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a blessed holiday season. We have a son that had to have much testing after he was born--MRI, sleep apnea, etc. I was beside myself. Being a nurse, you always think the worst. After 9 years, I have come to the conclusion that he is bipolar and that is what is causing his problems. Nothing like what you had, but I know the testing, poking, prodding, and waiting for the results is heart wrenching... nothing that anyone can fix, say, or know what you are dealing with unless they themselves have been there. Hang in there, keep your spirits high, and just believe....believe that whatever happens is for the best and you can deal with it. Take hold of all the support you get from your friends, family, and your spouse. It is o.k. to cry, be angry, or whatever, this is your child and you only want the best for her. You are human. Take your children and hold and hug and kiss them, they do grow up fast. A friend from the internet-Colleen P.

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.
