“I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.” –A. Rimbaud
It was my older sister who convinced me to start this blog, I would send her long-winded emails about our infertility, she would call me and through laughter or tears tell me I needed to share our story with others. I have found a great deal of comfort in writing this experience down. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again- this last year has been the most difficult year of our life and somehow sharing our struggles and sadness with family, friends and the random bloggers on WordPress who stumbled across GirlWithAGoldDress has brought me peace, happiness and strength.
With that being said, I’ve decided to stop writing for a while. Dan and I have made the decision to not share our transfer date with anyone and so it will be impossible to write about our experiences over the next few months. I know some people feel comfortable sharing all the details of their infertility and IVF experience with the world, but I am not one of those people. In truth, this is still an extremely private and personal experience for Dan and me, regardless of how open it may seem I have been thus far.
I appreciate all the kind words I’ve received, it has meant so much to me to have people read my words and express how they have touched them. I have grown closer to so many people in my life because of my willingness to share this experience with them and for that I am immensely grateful.
So feel free to send prayers, positive vibes, wishes and happy thoughts our way. We’ll appreciate them all.
…Here’s to hoping for a future filled with lots of gold dresses.
