I am on a blogroll, created by the wonderful people over at Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters. Recently, Mel asked for people to send in their best posts of 2006. The truly heartfelt posts, the ones that sum up something important to you. I’ve spent the last several days reading over these posts. You can find them here.

Over the past several days, I’ve found that I’m not alone. Not that I ever thought I truly was – I know too many of the girls over at WebMD for that – but even though I share so much with them, at times it seems I’m the only one to feel a certain way. I’ve read posts from husbands, wives, surrogates. Infertiles, pregnant after infertility, just starting out the journey. Those who’ve lost hope and have stopped, those determined to keep on, those who are taking a break and those who have chosen other options. Some posts are recent, some are from the beginning of last year. Regardless, they’ve all helped me heal in some ways.

I feel incredibly peaceful with my choices right now. I thank every single one of you who submitted your posts for being brave enough to share with everyone your most poignant post, for linking it where everyone can see. To the Town Criers, I want to say thank you for making the blog roll, and doing such wonderful things for the infertile community. I’ve learned of many new blogs along the way, and I wouldn’t have found them without you.

To those who have left me comments – thank you. They mean a lot to me, to know that others are doing more than just stopping in, to know that my blog post meant something to someone. To my new readers – thank you, as well, for coming by. I hope you come back to see how things are, and if you have a blog I’ll find my way there as well.

  1. You’re welcome. It’s my pleasure since I gain so much from the community too. I guess I wanted to set up what I always wished would appear–a place where all this information was compiled in one place and everyone was welcome. Thank you for reading (and the heartfelt thank you in this post–it means a lot to me).

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing; it is a wonderful thing to find that we’re not alone and there are so many others out there to support and draw support from.
