I worked a long time to have my son. I worked with the fertility clinic; I worked with health professionals; I worked with my doctor; I worked with counselors; I worked with the medical clinics; but most of all, I worked on myself. I endured a long and grueling journey over the years which ultimately had a happy ending.
My miracle child was brought into this world thanks to technology and more importantly to patience and perseverance. I spent years of heartache focusing on my dream of being a mom. I was determined to make this happen, no matter what the obstacles were. Today’s modern technology and medical options have made my son and thousands of other children a possibility for families who yearn for children of their own. Yet it takes more than science, money, and professionals for your reality to transpire. It takes a positive attitude and tireless devotion to stay on track with all the ups and downs this journey can impose. Of course, there were times when I was so fed up with the process that I wanted to surrender; yet I knew deep in my heart that I could not give up on the notion of having a child of my own.
So today and every day I am grateful for everyone who was a part of my journey, who stood with me through thick and thin. The ones who lifted me when I was at my lowest and reminded me that my dreams could come true. Those moms who told me their stories who kept me motivated and trekking along by reminding me not to give up.
I am grateful I stayed focused. I am grateful to my team at the fertility clinic; I am grateful I overcame my fears and didn’t give up on my dreams. I am grateful for my beautiful, little boy.
