This week was hard yet uneventful all in one. This sweet little stuffed giraffe is the first gift for you from your grandma. She left it on my door along with some more pregnancy tests the day after I took the first test. So the gift isn’t from this week but seeing it everyday has given me courage to keep going. Every time I see this giraffe I’m filled with joy and reminded that their is life growing inside of me. After all the tests and a round of a fertility medication I had finally, just this year, came to terms that this wasn’t in my future. But here it is. Sure I cry most days at the thought of doing this as a single mom, but my family is pretty wonderful and I am reminded by them just how not alone I am. This stuffed animal is proof for me every time I see it that I am not alone.
