For the IComLeavWe'ers, you can find a brief outline of my IF journey in the side bar.  Look for "Baby Making Road Map."  For a more detailed (but still relatively brief) account of how I came to be a traveler on this infertility journey, click on the links under "You Are Here:  How It All Began."

Quick outline:

B.  Not preventing for eight
C.  Diagnosed with PCOS & endometriosis
D.  Tried alternative therapies
E.  Tried infertility drugs
F.  Achieved pregnancy
G.  Miscarried
H.  Three failed IUI's

II.  Who I am without infertility
A.  Married almost seven years
B.  High school English teacher
C.  Daughter, sister, aunt, niece, friend
D.  Vegetarian
E.  Vespa driver
F.  Cradle Catholic

III.  Current state of affairs

I look forward to hearing from all the ICLW'ers!  Welcome to you.  

Those of you who are regular visitors, welcome back.  Thanks for being here.

The 'wait' is the hardest part of adoption, but it will bring you endless joy when it does happen for you~I wish you the best of luck with your 'wait'!

I LOVE that you have a Vespa. It seems the ultimate height in coolness. Probably wouldn't work here in Vancouver. They don't callit the "Wet Coast" for nothing... ;) ICLW

Thank you so much for your comment. It makes me smile to know that someone is reading and actually listening and agreeing with things I say, and then giving me feedback on top of it. Your journey has been tough, I can't even begin to imagine, but adoption, amazing! It's the best thing my birth mother did for me. My parents are just that, my parents, They've never been anything different.It takes special people to go down the adoption road, and therefore, they get the most special babies.

Hope you get matched very soon! Summer's sounding pretty darn good to me too!

Thanks for the Intro, We are on the adoption path as well but haven't got through the home study yet. Hope your wait is short and joyful!

Thanks for your intro. I'm looking forward to the summer too! Hope you get matched soon, and don't wait too long.

Not ICLW, but I wanted to acknowledge that you are in The Wait, ask you how you are doing with it, and wish you the best.

Thanks for the intro. I hope that you'll be matched soon!

I wanted a Vespa at one time - I ended up with a Suzuki Bravo and then I just lost the desire to ride on a bike.....
