Thank you and goodbye — The Bump

Thank you and goodbye

I just wanted to pop in to say thank you to those of you I've interacted with the last 2 years.  After much thought, DH and I have decided to end our TTC journey.  Almost 4 years ago, we were blessed with the most amazing little girl and we want to be present for her childhood.  I'm seeing a counselor to help with the grieving process of not being able to have more LOs and in time I know I'll be ok.

Sending prayers to each and every one of you, wherever you are in your journey.

God Bless!
DD conceived naturally in 2009.  TTC #2 since August 2010.  Praying for guidance as we decide what's next.

When the world says, "Give up,"

Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

Re: Thank you and goodbye

  • awww, hon. I'm so sorry, I know this is not the ending you had in mind. I understand that you have to draw the line somewhere because TTC robs your life.

    Focus on the beautiful family that you have. Many blessings to you.

  • I'm so sorry. I truly know how you feel. I think we are almost where you are now. Partly because we are running out of options and partly because we are tired of it consuming our lives. The hardest thing is accepting that Gods plan may not necessarily be my plan. Sigh. Hang in there and best of luck to you and your family. Hugs.
