First and foremost, I want to take a moment to wish all my fellow bloggers and readers a happy, healthy, and blessed 2016. You all are such a huge part of my life and I couldnt imagine it without you!
Some of you reading this are probably in the same boat as me–ready for 2015 to be behind you, for a new leaf to be turned over, praying that 2016 will be your miracle year. Or you might be thinking that you felt this way last year, and the year before that too. I get it.
Some of you may have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or family member this year. Others might have finally brought their miracles into the world this year, or welcomed a second or third.
Some of you may have finally gotten your BFP this year, or maybe just another BFN yet again and again. Some are thrilled for the BFP, others scared to death because of their past losses. Some wonder if they will ever conceive still.
You may have gone through IUI’s and/or IVF’s this year, or recently embarked on the TTC journey and are praying you dont have to go that route. Maybe you are just patiently waiting to fall pregnant each month, maybe you are saving every penny you own for medical help, or perhaps you are eagerly expecting your due date as we speak.
Maybe you are a struggling new mom lacking sleep and wondering what you got yourself into. The PPD and juggling act is real.
Perhaps you are sick from the child within you, or sick from all your injections. Maybe both. Maybe you are excited for an ultrasound to see the beautiful life inside you, or dreading hearing that appointment to confirm your worst fears are true.
Maybe you are anxiously awaiting a placement from an adoption agency, or foster home as we speak. Or you might be investigating surrogacy, egg donors, or embryo adoption. Maybe you are pondering having a child free life with your partner. Or maybe you really have no clue what you even want from all this anymore and are on a break. Its okay, I get it.
No two journeys are the same. But wherever you are in it, I pray you feel some peace moving into this new year. *Try* to be thankful for what you do have and live every day to the fullest, even though things might not be exactly what you want right now.
Sending you my best (and of course, lots of baby dust) for 2016!
