So here we are, seeking support. Support can come in so many ways and each bit of it plays a very important role in our journey. Compassion and kindness are the most important factors that will help us achieve our goals of being parents.
We woke up this morning eager to see what America would see as Good Morning America shared our segment. It is amazing what actually gets put together after 1.5 hours of interviews, it was just a tiny piece. In the interview we discussed adoption, doula work, health, family and more.
We knew there would be a lot of criticism and controversy over our sharing, but the reality is that those people do not matter and their issues are their own. We will continue holding hope and if having a baby through IVF is not what the future holds we will move on to other options. Opening your heart and asking for help is never easy, but despite all of the negative we are still thankful we did.
I also briefly want to say a few thank you's... Thank you to our parents, our family and our friends and the friends of our family and friends. Thank you to my doula families and colleagues. Thank you to the health providers along the way and to the current Dr's and Midwives that are along the fertility journey with us. Thank you to Birth Without Fear, De Su Mama, Baby Zone, YouCaring and Good Morning America. Thank you to the kindness of others that have sent us a bounty of love. There is so much to be thankful for!
