A picture of Juice for you cooing pleasure.
For the last three years, doing the taxes has been a trek through all of the failed treatments, lost babies and missed due dates. It occured to mr as I pulled together all of our medical deductions for our DE cycle that there are no more IF anniversary's without babies. That is to say, the anniversaries will still come, and may still hurt, but I won't be saying "and I still don't have a baby!". I do! Two! My baby cup runneth over!
In the moments when I feel lost, overwhelmed and exhausted, I find myself remembering that these children are such a gift; the cycle could have failed, they could have died after they were born, or had more medical issues than they did. It's all a crap shoot, and I'm so so grateful that they are here.
Thank you babies. Thank you for making me a mama.
