Today marks 1 year since I started this humble piece of journaling(1st Post). Finding the Stirrup Queen community has been such a blessing. The love and support I get has helped me walk this horrible road of infertility with a fuller heart. I have made some very cool friends, friends that know more about me then some visible friends. Without this community I would be a hot mess, crying in ball wondering why me. Sadly there are many of you going through the same struggles as me. Selfishly I need you folks to walk with me hand in hand.
I pray that we all get our happy endings no matter what that looks like.
This past year has seen a lot of tears, angry words said between Mark and I, and disappointment. Of course I never would have imagined I would be working my way through 3 IVF procedures. I never thought I would still be struggling to be a mom while my friends pass me by with their 1st, 2nd or 3rd child. But… I also never imagined I would be more resolved in my desire to be a mom, I never imagined Mark would place crosses in our empty nursery, I never imagined the love I would feel for my lost child, I never imagined I would open up to my family and friends and get more love and support then a girl could ask for.
Now for the fun part. I thought about what to giveaway; jewelry, candles, t-shirt, etc but I settled on something I love to get besides money. If you would like to win a $10 Star.bucks gift card leave a comment. I will do the drawing on Friday, October 1st at 4pm. Once the winner is pulled I will email you for your home address.
