* Welcome ICLWers! Thank you for visiting my blog. I don't have a journey summary, though I'm thinking I should create one now. But the first post (and second) should tell you some background if you're interested. I'm about to start my second injectable IUI cycle in a few days and am excited!
As I've mentioned in prior posts, my mom passed away when I was four-years-old. I connected with her best friend from childhood, P, quite a few years ago when I was living in San Luis Obis.po. When I moved up here to the Bay Ar.ea, about two-and-a-half years ago, I lived in her guest house for the first few months until I found my own place. She is close to my heart and has become a bit of a mother figure in my life, gradually, over the years.
So, it touched me when she told me the other day - while we were having a snack and coffee after a work meeting I had down in her neck of the woods - that she thought it was a good thing that I was putting this effort in to becoming a mother. That she supported me because it was something I really wanted, and she didn't want me to have regrets.
This means the world. It's as close as I will come to hearing my Mom say that she supports me and gives her blessing.
