Just got this email from my Dad and had to repost here in full, because he’s the best ever and because I want to remember it forever.
Hope you are continuing to feel better overall. It was so very nice to get that pic from you yesterday. It seems about right from the time we saw you at Christmas to now. You look great and also lovely and also beautiful. I am grateful for all of us reaching the cusp of parenthood/grandparenthood. It is an exciting time both for the new experiences we are encountering along the way, and for the always present jitters we feel about the unknown. But that is the way the future is and, historically speaking, always has been…unknown until we get there. I know there is always so much to think about, but in between making lists and plans, do take moments each day to reflect upon and take pleasure in the miracles that are occurring within you and around you.
Good advice for all those struggling with the transition from struggling to get pregnant to struggling with pregnancy after infertility (you know who you are!).
Okay, I might have to go cry now.
