When I created this blog 2 years ago, I wasn't in a very good place. I had a failed IVF cycle behind me (May / June 2007) and I began searching the internet for solice. I came across a blog of a woman who had been through numerous IVF cycles, and a recent miscarriage. As I read her words, my heart pounded. Her emotions were my emotions. I started clicking on links within her blog and found other women who were dealing with the same things I was. Through this one woman's blog, I found what is now referred to as the ALI community. I had found my home. I started my blog shortly after I found this community. It was a way for me to vent, to put my feeling out there, with no worries about backlash. My family was oblivious, as were my friends. But I began to find that I could count on the support network that having this blog provided me. As time went on, and my status changed from cycling to pregnant and now to parenting, I've followed other bloggers out there who where doing the same, and others who were still fighting the battle. I know that over time, I've lost some readers, but there are a few people out there that I really consider to be my friends...even though we've never met.
I don't know what I would have done had I not stumbled upon that blog 2 years ago. So, Jenna, if you're out there and reading. Thank you.
