Blog Title

I've been thinking about changing the name of our blog. But after much thought, I've decided to leave it the same. Our stork really isn't great with directions. Sure, we're pregnant now and it appears that our journey really is leading us to a baby. But it's definitely not been the quickest, easiest path. We took many wrong turns, hit several dead ends, and ended up on detours for way too long. There's been too many tears cried and my heart has been broken time and time again.

It's been a long, hard road to get here and the stupid stork assigned to us put us through a load of crap to get to this point. I'm certainly thankful for the road we're on now, don't get me wrong. I'd do all of it 30 times again if I could be where I am now. (Money and biological clock allowing...)

But the title should stay the same. 2 years have passed, 3 surgeries, 1 hospitalization, my miscarriage, hundreds of doctor's visits, thousands of dollars spent. This blog has been my outlet, my safe haven, through it all. It's been my place to escape and talk openly about my feelings, good or bad. You all have been my source of support and encouragement when my world seemed to crash around me.

And now the tides have turned in my favor, but it's still just a blog about a girl who struggled to get here. And she's feeling like the luckiest person in the world. But she's still a little resentful towards that stork!


  1. Awww! I agree! Leave the title. It's almost like a girl scout badge, or something you've earned. Shows where you "came from" and also where you are going! :)

  2. I love the title especially now because now you have your stork, it just took forever to find you guys...

  3. I wouldn't change your title either! It's you!
