one giant step forward

We have an appointment with an infertility specialist in St. Louis on January 23.


I'm fully at peace with this decision. However, if our options are not what we would like them to be, then we will shift gears and move on with adoption paperwork and the homestudy. Either way, 2008 could be a big year for us, Lord willing.

As we research our options and get ready for our consultation, I may put up some posts here explaining different forms of assisted reproductive therapies. As I learn, I'll share the knowledge. ;)

But for now, I'm going to enjoy the Christmas holidays. That, and cover all of this in much prayer.

Love,
Glenna

I just wanted to thank you for your honesty and your blog. i am new to this blog world, but seeing other women struggle with this has already helped, a little. I'm going to put you up on my site for others to see - i think it's worth sharing. I will be checking back in and wishing you the best!

I know it is exciting to be moving forward. I always felt better when we moved ahead.

I hope it goes well with the RE.

Hi Glenna,
I would love it if you linked. Mind if I do the same? I love the HP Message Boards--look me up if you ever log back in. I just scheduled our appointment and its in January too. I'll pray for both of us as we wait!

Hey Glenna I just found your blog. Tell William that Matt and I are praying for you. I think about you alot particularly on days when Blake has pulled off his poopy diaper and smeared it across the room and I don't like being a mom. God forgive me for my ungratefulness. Also thank you so much for calling us after Ethan was born. I told Matt after I listened to the message on the answering machine that that meant so much to me because I know it must be hard to be happy for someone else. We love you guys.

Just wanted to stop by and tell you that I'm so glad you have peace about the appt... I truly hope and pray that God will make it utterly clear at the appt exactly what you should pursue... I know it'll be emotional not knowing what you may hear....

LOVE your new blog template. May I ask where you found it? I've been wanting a new one.

Still thinking of you!

We are in the exact same boat. I know how you are feeling. The waiting and unknown is stressful, would you agree?

Have a lovely christmas!
