Of Renewing Our Hope

We faced the black and white screen once again – that same room, that same doctor – the one who pronounced to us only four months ago the unexpected loss of something so precious and anticipated – he, too, had that look on his face, the one that said he hoped so much for something better to tell us this time, but that he was almost afraid to hope. We were all a little afraid in that room. And then it came, the tiny, grainy flicker of a tiny grain-sized heart beating.  ...

Transfer Day (Part 2)

I find myself at the end of a day that seems a bit of a whirlwind – 6 hours of riding in a car for a procedure that took about ten total minutes – maybe. It seemed like such a quick moment for such a significant event. There is a little tiny life floating around inside of me. Already I feel connected. Connected to this little life that I pray will find a home in my womb. We’re in it together this little one and I – working together for the dream of two parents that  ...
