We are grateful to everyone at SCI for arranging this so quickly, and doing everything they can medically to make this a positive outcome. We are cautiously optimistic that this time will be our time!
Again, we have to acknowledge all the kind and generous support we have received from the surro-community, in person, through comments on the blog, and via emails relaying best wishes, personal accounts, and encouragement to stay the course.
It really does help to not feel alone in this process, and to know others have faced similar setbacks with eventual success. One person shared their favorite quote, which I will paraphrase:
"Greatness comes not from what we accomplish, but from what we overcome."
I find the quote very inspirational, but it is frustrating to have to be patient and persevere.
But we will.
Because a child will be worth it all.
Because of the greatness of becoming parents.
