She's a Peach...

Today I had lunch with my blog friend, Elizabeth. We met at a little restaurant called Peaches. This is the first time either of us have met a "blog friend" in person. As I was leaving the house my husband joked that she could turn out to be a 57 year old online predator. Thankfully, she was not. She was a peach! Really funny and sweet and it was great to talk to someone in person about all the "fun" stuff the game of infertility and adoption has to offer. And she was so generous to give me a box of Bravelle!! I was talking with my sister-in-law last weekend about how so many people were generous with helping us attain meds. And she said " It takes a village..." In our case, it takes a village to make a child. A heartwarming twist on the saying "It takes a village to raise a child." I'm really overwhelmed by all the hands that have reached out...

Infertility has taken so much from me. But today, I met a new friend :) And I have Infertility to thank for that...

I have met a couple of amazing women because of this journey...it is one of the gifts of infertility (I promise, there ARE gifts at the end of this, just not tons:)).

I agree with Jill!! I want to "like" this too! Also, love your twist on the familiar quote! Infertility takes so, so much away from us, so it is nice to see you gaining a new friend from all this mess.
