If we have an infertility blog, or follow them consistently...then we know what loss feels like in some fashion or another. I've posted years worth of struggles, loss and challenges. Through it all, I've had so much love and kindness sent my way.
I know I'm behind on updating about my trip to Texas. That's coming. I promise. Just know for now, that all is wonderful. So much has happened these past few weeks, and I will be sharing all of it very soon.
But right now, what's most important, is standing by our friends in this community. One of my most special friends not only in the blog world, but in MY world, is Amanda. I can't remember a time that she hasn't cheered me on, virtually wiped my tears and shown unwavering amounts of love.
She is always there for so many of us, at every turn, heartache and joy. No matter how difficult it is for her, she radiates happiness for US. She's a special kind of rarity and I'm so so blessed to have found her and get to know her. I'd walk this walk 1000 times over if it meant getting to know her all over again.
If you don't know, she's been waiting to bring her baby home through adoption since last fall. While several have come close, it hasn't been quite close enough. This last week Amanda and her husband, Sam were one of TWO to potentially get chose by a birth mom. So much hope rests on these situations. And it's the same as any loss that we've felt along the way when it doesn't turn out how we'd hoped. They were not chosen.
She's one of the strongest and bravest women I've ever "met". I want her baby to come home to her and I pray for that every single night. She will be the most amazing mother and deserves to hold her baby in her arms. I wish I was as eloquent a write as she...but I will always fall short of beautiful way with words. So please, pop over to her blog and give her even a tiny piece of the love and support she has shown me and so many of us.
Hang in there my dear friend. I know in my heart your baby is waiting for you just as you wait for him or her.
I know how much your friendship and support mean to her. This is a beautiful post and I pray that shes feeling the love and support from all of us.ReplyDelete
I agree with you Amanda is amazing. If you look back at my blog posts almost every single time Amanda is the FIRST to comment and send me support. So many times her comments have brought me a sense of comfort. I am forever grateful for her friendship. Their baby will be so lucky and so loved by these two. Sending you my love sweet girl!ReplyDelete
Amanda IS such a wonderful friend to so many of us. Always putting others before herself, she truly cares... About each and every one of us. My heart breaks for Amanda, I want her to be a mommy so badly... Standing with you, Suz, in support of such a wonderful friend XOXOXReplyDelete
Oh I am so sad to hear they weren't chosen. how heartbreaking! I'm heading over there now...ReplyDelete
Such a sweet post! Continuing to cheer her on! I hate the heartbreak. Hate it. Just trusting that the Lord already has the exact baby planned for her. So hard while waiting, of course. So glad we all have each other on the good days and bad!ReplyDelete
Amanda, I don't know you, but I am so sorry you weren't chosen. I looked at your blog and I see you are a believer, this won't make you feel better today, but the min your baby is placed in your arms, you'll know it's meant to be. I'm so sorry for heartbreaking this is and how bad you feel right now. This isn't fair. Love and hugs!ReplyDelete
Love you, sweet friend. You warm my heart so. This jouney has been worth it no matter what because of you.ReplyDelete
Blog post with an explanation is on my to do list in the morning... Hopefully it'll all make more sense then.
You're such a good friend Suzanne. Amanda is such a dear friend to everyone in this community.ReplyDelete
You both are such wonderful people and so deserve to finally get your take-home-babies. Hugs.ReplyDelete
Amanda has been the very one who always helps talk me through each and every situation I've been in. Whether it's support or the enormous amount of knowledge she has to share she always does no matter her situation. I would love nothing more than for her to have a baby in her arms so very soon.ReplyDelete
