A Trip Down 2009...

As I sit here looking back on the past 12 months; I can’t help but think ‘where has this year gone!?’ I really thought I would be sitting here writing about other things…hopefully one that involved a child; however God had other plans for us.

The months have gone by and as this year comes to an end-another one is about to begin. As I sit here is ponder throughout the year I think about our journey…about all the memories that brought us joy…about the moments that brought us laughter with our loved ones and friends…and even the tears that were shed over this year. As I sit here and recall the happy and sad times I am remembering how each has enriched our lives.

We will being 2010 just as we did 2009…we will take one little step…then take one more and let God guide us through the rest… each year we become stronger, each year we are able to carry our heads higher…to hold each other closer and to lean on God even more.

Although our rules will get bent, we will shed more tears…and we will have those arguments that all couples have…but amongst the normality of human life-this is a NEW Year and we will make it to the end. I can’t tell you that in 2010 I will be writing the words I dream of, but I can tell you that no matter what happens in this next year, I will become stronger each day that passes.

I am so grateful for all that 2009 has brought us! I am extremely blessed and thankful for it all!!

However, I am even more grateful for another New Year that I get to spend with my husband, with my family and with my friends!!

The following pictures/links are some of our happenings throughout the year...happy and sad memories, but all has made us stronger!

I'm so glad that I got to "meet" you this year. I pray that the coming year will be better than ever for you! You deserve the best!

Love and hugs!

Tiffany, as I read your words, I just nodded my head in agreement. I know exactly what you mean by looking back on the year and realizing that it didn't turn out exactly as you had hoped and dreamed.

But I can also wholeheartedly agree with you that if we hadn't had these challenges (not that I would have asked for them), we wouldn't be so strong in our faith, in our relationship with each other, in our relationship with God. We have seen our faith touch others' lives and that is just amazing and makes all the heartache and tears worth it.

I will continue to pray for you and Zach on your road to parenthood!

Sisters in infertility but most importantly, sisters in CHRIST!

My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: drhousewife.blogspot.com . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at UTInfertilityResearch@gmail.com .
