The Beginning. Or…the Middle.

I started this blog nearly a year ago.  This post is a little bittersweet.  Why?

A year ago, we were getting ready to go off birth control and were unsure of what the future held for us.  A year ago, we were getting ready to leave for a long Europe trip and were not quite ready for a baby yet.  But a year ago, we thought we might have a baby by now.

We don’t have a baby yet.

Not only do we not have a baby, but there is not one growing in my tummy.  Now we’re unsure if we’ll ever have a baby.  Now we’re a little jaded, a little frustrated, and a lot less hopeful.

It’s been a long year.

I thought this would be a good time to start a blog because we’re ready to move to that next step.  We’ve already done some preliminary testing, but over the next several weeks we’re going to start meeting with specialists and start researching adoption.  Due to the personal nature of these things, this blog is password protected.  You’re reading this because you’re a close friend or family member and we need your support.  Sometimes it’s easier to open up on paper than it is in person.

Thanks in advance for your love, hugs, prayers, and words of encouragement.  A year ago, we were so excited to see how our lives might change in a year.  Turns out things didn’t change much, but at the same time everything changed.  I don’t know where we’ll be in another year, but I’m glad to have you guys along for the ride.
