It's been real

I've watched several blogger buddies, previously infertile and otherwise, drop out of blogging and wondered when or if I would be ready to call it quits. Over the past three months with Jonas I've watched my posts drop off considerably. Yes, I'm busy being a new mom, but I also just haven't felt the need or desire as much lately.

I looked back over my posts from this time last year when I was dealing with another failed IUI. My post from Feb. 21st 2008 pretty much says it, the disappointment and despair was intense. Now, a little over a year later, that despair has been replaced with fulfillment and joy almost equally intense, though maybe not as blog worthy.

I have appreciated immensely the encouragement and support I have received here. Thanks for joining me on the journey. If you're still reading and wouldn't mind leaving one last comment so I know you're there, that would be great.

If you're interested in Jonas updates I may keep up a very minimal family blog, so send me your e-mail and I'll get you the link.

Adios.

I found your blog a couple of months ago and read all the way through...there are many similarities in our stories (we even share a first name), though you are farther along the path than I am. Reading through your process has been great mental preparation for me as I embark on IVF. Thank you for writing it all out as you went.

I have cried, laughed, loved and prayed reading your blog. I'm so thankful that God has fulfilled your desire to become parents. Please put us on the list of those to be on your family blog list.

Sorry I am just NOW getting some time to look at my google reader, which contains over 500 posts...sigh. I know that the same is for me, I haven't been blogging since I first became pregnant. I would like to start a family blog too, especially to update my parents and everyone else so far away, but not sure when I'd have a chance! I love my kids but it sure his a 24/7 job!! Best and hardest job ever, right?
I also would love to keep up with your journey now so please add me to the list ;)
