An Amazing Quote

I know it's been forever since I posted,  Things have been tough around here for us, so I've been trying to pick up the pieces and get things done.  Nothing on the infertility front other than my surgery is scheduled.  Promise to catch you all up soon.

Meanwhile, my friend Sarah shared this on FB today, and I had to share it with you: 

"The English language lacks the words 'to mourn an absence.' For the loss of a parent, grandparent, spouse, child or friend we have all manner of words and phrases, some helpful, some not. Still, we are conditioned to say something, even if it is only 'I am sorry for your loss.' But for an absence, for someone who was never there at all, we are wordless to capture that particular emptiness.  For those who deeply want children and are denied them, those missing babies hover like silent, ephemeral shadows over their lives. Who can describe the feel of a tiny hand that is never held?" - Laura Bush

I had a feeling there might be post from you in my Google reader today, I've been thinking of you. I'm sorry things aren't great at the moment, I hope they pick up soon. Take care!
