Today, this blog (such as it is) turned a year old.
More importantly, this was egg retrieval / conception day one year ago too — the day our beloved Emerson came into existance.
Amazing. How different life is now.
On reflection, I still think our going through IVF (the good, bad, and ugly) was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It has given me a greater appreciation for the gift of having a child. It’s something I will never take for granted.
I recall–and hope to always remember–the shear majesty of it all, especially the embryo transfer. For me, it was sublime and life affirming. In short, it was a miracle (this from a a lapsed Catholic / secular humanist / Christian agnostic)… made real before my eyes.
Everyone should be so lucky.
