From Infertile to Happy Mom

Hello everyone. I'm sorry I have been such a bad blogger. I have heard other women talk about how time consuming having a newborn is, but I never fully understood the depth of that consumption until I had a newborn of my own. Baby is now 6 weeks old and finally in a sort-of predictable eating and sleeping pattern. Hopefully he keeps the predictability going as I need to return to work in a week and a half.

I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do with this blog over the past few months. I started this blog because of the desparation and despair I felt over experiencing infertility. I needed a place to unload and also to connect with other people who could relate to my experience. I have been very blessed by the infertile blogging community! I consider myself a much better person for knowing you all. Thank you so much for your support and empathy! I still pray for all of you and hope you are all blessed with a child.

Thankfully, I am no longer in that place of desparation and despair. For the first time in my life I feel perfectly happy. I'm not saying that my life is perfect. We do live in a fallen world. However, I have been feeling a deep sense of joy and peace. I am genuinely happy. It is such a nice change of pace and I am very grateful for the experience.

Since I feel like a different person than the woman who started this blog, I have decided not to add any more posts to this blog (at least for a while). I do have another blog that I will continue to keep current. I use my real name in my other blog so I do not want to just post the link here. If you are interested in following my other blog, please email me and I will be glad to share the link with you. If you would rather not follow my other blog I do understand. I will continue to pray for all of you and carry hope that your prayers for expanding your family are answered.

Thank you again for your support!
God bless you!
