  8. I allow myself a day of tears. No more than that. Otherwise, I know I won't be able to pull myself out of my sadness. Sending you hugs.

  9. You have my prayers, love, and thoughts that you will continue to recover and find joy and peace with having given your embryos a shot at being born in a wonderful family.

    It is good that your children, Rocco, and you will get to see their baby pictures, and other pictures as they grow up, because of the newly and better defined openness of the recipient family.

    It is good, kind, and generous that you are giving what you already know are some awesome genetics to help a precious young girl have a little brother or sister, and for her Mom and Dad to get to share their love with some more children.

    I like the update on your last bullet . . . it may be a lie too that you are "stable", because you have too big a heart, and have had too intense of a ride to plateau so quickly, and not continue to have those tears fall. In between moments of clarity and logic of course.

    You are a great mother! Prayers for you, Rocco, Leah, and Jay, the recipient family, and the children to be.

  14. You are amazingly strong. Reading your posts over the last several weeks has made me weirdly glad that I don't have any frosties (which isn't something I feel a whole lot of gladness about typically. Which is an understatement.) I don't think our family, or I, am in a place where more kids make sense but I don't know how I could have the courage and strength to give the gift you have. I would probably simply have been immobilized by an inability to make a decision and follow through with it. You are very brave, and you are giving such joy (and life) to another family. In fact, you are actually likely creating a family (hopefully).

    Amazing.

    I hope that time will prove your decision to have been the right one, that your connection with the recipients gives you solace and some measure of happiness in the joy they will likely receive, and your beautiful family reminds you every day of how blessed you are - despite it coming with some very tough moments.

    If I knew you personally I'd be hugging you hard.

  21. Sorry I missed this. But can I add a dollop of kindness on top of the mountain you've got going on above? In time this will feel right, all right.

  22. I'm so sorry I didn't have a chance to comment as you were going through this heartwrenching time. You made the right decision and did everything you should have to get to this place. As with all the shit we've faced, this will get easier with time. (right??) But i'm so sorry it has to be so hard. Hugs to ya, lady.

  23. Honey, I have to apologize for not getting a comment on here when you needed it. My phone doesn't like to let me comment on blogspot blogs, but that's a shitty excuse. I'm so sorry the pain was feeling so fresh and overwhelming and I wish I'd reached out. I love you. You've done a beautiful, difficult, and amazing thing.
