a story of a mother

12 Mar

My brave, beautiful friend Julie wrote this post yesterday.  If you will, read it; share it.

When does a woman become a mother?  Is when her first child is born?  At some point during the pregnancy?  (Please I don’t mean to instigate an abortion debate.)  Or is it sometime before…when she chooses to cultivate a life that is so ready to welcome a child?  When she proactively seeks and works to find a child who needs her?  In my mind, Julie is already a mother, the best kind of mother, and I cannot wait to meet the kid(s) she’ll love and raise.

After my third round of injections and intrauterine insemination did not result in a pregnancy (go here for more on my infertility), I curled up in bed and slept for over 24 hours.  I was depressed, even though my physicians assured me that I would, eventually, get pregnant.  I cannot imagine going through three miscarriages, at least one during the second trimester, in a year.  That takes a certain kind of character that is very, very rare.

Check out Julie’s story, even if just to read something remarkable or to leave a bit of encouragement.

    Perhaps some of your blog’s readers will want to jump on this offer. I am not sure how long it will be available. I just put in my order for a new baby sling that regularly retails for $39.99 and I got it for only $11.90. The only thing you are being charged for is the “shipping and handling.” Anywho, the site seems like it specializes in “designer”-type slings so this is a pretty good bargain. There is also “size insurance” which would add something like 5 dollars but it is optional. Visit this link: http://bit.ly/16LH7Eh and then click “Shop Now” and then select the one you want. Be sure you select your size and any other options! When you arrive at the page where you put in your information, type ENBABY into the discount code box and the cost will be discounted to +$0 plus S&H. Enjoy!
