As I close in on my first year of blogging (December 7th - Pots on Stove and December 16th - Becoming Parents) I can't help but reflect on the friendships I made and the connectedness now felt in what has been a very tumultuous, hilly ride through the land of Infertility.
I've been so impressed and amazed at how this community here comes together and can't help but scream a huge shout out to Mel - The stirrup Queen aka Lollipop Goldstein. She has compiled the most comprehensive list of known IF blogs - and they are categorized by topic. Cheers to you Mel - you have connected people to create a community in what otherwise has been a silent struggle. Words escape me and somehow the words Thank-you just don't seem to capture my gratefulness to you.
I went back and visited my very first post (have you ever done that?), it feels like a million years ago. What a journey, anyhow - I was wondering who my first comment was from and happily it is from someone I still keep in touch with. She is super cool and always sends a happy, upbeat thought my way. If you get a chance - go say hi to Ally.
Peace, love and blogland!
