Dreaming, Hoping, Praying

We have been so blessed by the generosity of our friends and family.  Their love and support continues to amaze me!  Yet again we have a wonderful friend who has stepped up and offered to help us raise some money for our IVF.  Anna has created this necklace just to support us.

Each "Dreaming, Hoping, Praying" necklace purchased will support us on our journey to becoming parents. The necklace is $25. We would be so honored if you would consider supporting us in this way.  If you would like to order a necklace (or two or three!),  you can visit Anna's facebook page here or shoot me an email.

It Begins...

Here's what nearly $6,000 worth of IVF retrieval meds looks like.

This is the week is all really begins.  I start daily injections.  The further along we go, the more injections I get each day.  Seeing all of these needles has really made this process become more real to me.  I'm nervous.  I'm emotional.  I'm hopeful.

We'll be in Colorado in just a few short weeks, and there are so many things we're praying for.

*Safe travels
*As few medicine side effects as possible (I really don't need to be any more emotional than I am when I'm unmedicated.)
*Healthy eggs and then embryos
*Successful retrieval procedure (during the procedure and post-op)
*My nerves!
*My marriage (this thing can be ridiculously stressful)
All we want is to be a mom and dad.  We are so appreciative of all the love and support (prayer and financial!) from our friends and family.  We love you all, and are actively trusting Him to work all things for good to those who love Him.

If you would be willing to help us financially, you can donate here.  We would be eternally grateful for your generosity!
