Merry Christmas from Jeff, Kerry, and the BoGo!!!

December 25, 2008

Just a quick little blurb about what Christmas means to us this year…

This is typically a really hard time for a couple who is struggling to get pregnant.  The last three Christmases, we have been on auto-pilot through the holiday season, because that’s really the only way we knew how to get through it.  Weeks upon weeks of getting holiday cards in the mail with our friends and family’s babies on them, emails showing those bright little faces “opening” their first presents.  Kerry’s message board friends posting pictures of their little girls in their new velvet dresses, and their little boys in their miniature tuxedos, Jeff’s friends unable to meet us out for cocktails during the holidays because they’re spending “baby’s first Christmas” with their family.  It was hard.  Really hard. 

This Christmas brings a whole new meaning to our favorite holiday, and we obviously have SO MUCH to be thankful for this year.  This year, there won’t be any hiding tears at family get togethers (unless it’s tears of happiness), or wishing we could just crawl in a hole until the first of the year.  This year, we will celebrate with our friends and family, smiling because we know what’s in store for us in the years to come.  We will finally get to be that couple who gets to send out holiday cards with the BoGo’s picture on them, and share in the joy of our boys’ first Christmas with our families.

Words cannot describe how much we have both appreciated everyone’s support, love, and understanding throughout this past year, and how much we will continue to appreciate you all through the months and years to come.  To you and yours, our growing family wishes you a very Merry Christmas, or Happy Hanukkah, or happy holidays, or happy Thursday – whatever you celebrate!

And to our friends and readers who are still struggling with infertility, and all of the emotion that comes with it, particularly during this season, our hearts are with you.  We’ve been there.  We know how you are feeling.  And although we HATED when people told us, “don’t worry, it will be your turn soon“, we want to tell you that if you want this badly enough, it WILL happen for you.  We promise.  And we give you the strength and love to get through yet another Christmas without the only gift you really wish was under the tree.  (((hugs)))

With love,

Jeff, Kerry, and our two sweet little boys

    Well said Kerry. I hope you had a great Christmas! The nursery is being painted as I type! I’ll post pictures soon. And yes, I’m only up 13 pounds…it’s crazy, but my OB says the weight and size of the babes is exactly where it should be and I’ll make up for it in the coming weeks/months. Without going out and eating Baconaters 😉 I don’t know how much more I can shovel in! lol.
