I just want to say, “thank you.”
When I first put this all out there on Friday, little did I realize that all your kind words and comments would make this the best decision (not to mention, therapy) I could have made. It initially felt like a basic way to keep you all updated without having to explain my situation over and over and over again. Especially if things don’t happen as planned.
It wasn’t until my dear friend, Amanda, suggested that by opening up, I was “welcoming in the positive energy from my friends and family and, by doing so, will make this all happen.” Following that, many of you said the same.You are ALL brilliant and why, OH WHY, had I not thought of that before? !!!
So, thank you.
If there is one thing I have learned in these past three years, it is to take a moment and be thankful for what I have because it truly is enough. Sure, another Markovich-Edwards would make a nice addition, no doubt about it. But think of everything I would have missed in these past three years if I had just sat around thinking only about what I don’t have. Okay, maybe a few of Oscar’s temper tantrums, I’ll give you that. But I watch my boy and marvel. As he sleeps, eats and when he tells us story after story with the most animated face. Some couples going through invitro don’t even have that and I feel very lucky.
