I’ll take one ticket to the two week wait! Once again it is my least favorite time of the fertility process; the hormonally packed two week wait. We are currently filled with hope and optimism. The problem is that we also have to have patience. I think as a society we are impatient and I am no different when it comes to my infertility. I want a baby yesterday! Trying to maintain balance and patience during a time that is filled with uncertainty and raging hormones is difficult! Long ago God decided that I needed a good healthy dose of patience. The funny thing is I don’t recall ever praying for it!
I recently came across a quote that I thought was perfect in regards to our infertility journey. “Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow - that is patience.” (Unknown Author) This process has been anything but easy for G and I. We have been waiting for years and years to have our family. We have struggled with keeping that hope and drive when things became more difficult. After our last loss we made the decision to not wait passively for it to happen, but to continue the journey to grow our family. Yes we know that there could be more heartache along the way, but the blessing at the end will be worth all the pain and suffering.
So as we head into yet another waiting period we will continue to hope and pray that this will be our time! We appreciate all the prayers, well wishes and fingers crossed coming our way!!!
