Thank you all for your sweet comments and emails after my post yesterday. I am really okay. Actually I am dramatically better. It's amazing how healing talking about things can be. And these are hard things to talk about out loud. But writing about them, that I can do. And I am so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing friends both in real life and online that are so very supportive of this healing process. I am always a little embarrassed when the responses start rolling in. I am so very touched, but then also worry that I have made too big a deal out of things, been too open, too honest. But there is just no denying how healing your words of encouragement are to me. So thank you.
Speaking of my online friends, I have made such amazing friends within this online community. True friends. I didn't realize what amazing people I would find when I started blogging. But here you are. My online friends. Who really don't need the world "online" in front of their names. They are my friends, pure and simple. And I am so lucky to be a part of this group.
A few weeks ago I received a package in the mail from England. One my my best blogging friends had wanted to send a gift to Baby Girl. She knitted hats for our new girl, for Cici and of course for Henry too.
How amazing is that? Thank you Amanda, for your constant words of encouragement here on the blog, and for taking the time to make something so special for our sweet babies.
I am mailing out three packages today. Packages for a Secret Santa, and two other packages of baby boy Christmas clothes. I may not yet be ready to sell his stuff, but I can share them. I can
send a few things to my close friends who have little boys of their
own. All three packages are going to friends. Friends I have met online.
Thank you for being here, and thank you for supporting me. I am not sure how people do these things alone. My friends and family here, my friends and family online. Without you, this would seem impossible. Both the good and the bad. The infertility and the heart break it brings, but mainly the love, the parenting. It is so much easier with a village of loved ones that love this little guy almost as much as I do.
