Today is her 1st birthday.
Happy Birthday to Little Bug!
On the day of my first chemotherapy treatment at the beginning of October 2009, we found out that we had 5 "healthy" embryos preserved and waiting for us for the day we could welcome them into this world - whenever that may be.
Yes, so each Mother's/Father's day, we smile at the fact that we may not have children with us on that day, but we are parents to 5 little 5-cell embryos that we look forward to meeting one day. We have committed to trying with each embryo we have created, so looks like we might one day need a large vehicle! We think about the day we'll tell them they are in some-way quintuplets (they all came from the same cycle of both parents) and that they were waiting for us for years before we met them.
We feel truly blessed.
Happy Mothers Day to all mothers this weekend!
***If anyone is considering fertility procedures or interested to know more about this process of hormone injections, procedures, IVF, etc. I am an open book and would be happy to share the experience with you in more detail.
