Anastasia (Mei-Mei) is now over two months old. So many roadblocks could have prevented her from even being conceived, not to mention all the other things that could have gone wrong.
I'm in a state of perpetual amazement that Cradles and Graves has ended with a cradle!
It's been a long journey that began with one critical step - daring to try again despite multiple losses and infertility. Trying again could have brought us the worst disaster we'd ever faced. Instead it brought us our finest hour! The hope and courage to try again were largely inspired by Cindy, who showed us that success is possible even after multiple losses. Thank you, Cindy, for being willing to share your experiences! My wish is that through this blog, I can pass on that hope and courage to others who have experienced similar losses and are afraid to try again. It really is possible to have a live, healthy baby even after multiple cord-related losses. Post-loss pregnancy is very hard, but also very worth it!
I am actually a very private person, so documenting this journey here where anyone can see it was rather out of character, but I'm glad I did. It's been a joy "meeting" so many wonderful bloggy friends over the past few years. Thank you for all the kind words, prayers, and support! And with that, I will sign off:
Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!
