LittleBlue1224: Elisa & Steven's TTC Story
Thursday, June 19, 2008 1:24 PM
"We have all the hope in the world that we will, one day, be blessed with a healthy and beautiful little baby..."
Steven and I met almost five years ago on jdate.com (yes, we're an internet dating success story) and our three-year wedding anniversary is this October. It wasn't love at first sight for me, but if Steven tells the story, he'll say he knew right away. Boy, am I happy he was persistent! He is probably the most kind-hearted, warm, caring, funny, and genuine person I've ever had the great pleasure to be around. I honestly don't know what I'd do without him. Laughing and living with him every day is an absolute joy.
We got our BFP last summer, but tragically at seven weeks and one day, we discovered we had lost our baby. Naturally, we were both devastated and felt like nothing would ever be right again. After the hurt and pain began to subside, we knew we were ready to TTC again, and finally on our journey to becoming parents. I know Steven is going to make the most amazing father and I look forward ever day to making our dreams come true.
The best part about TTC is... well, you know! No, in all seriousness, the best part is knowing that once the TTC part is accomplished, we'll be one step closer to becoming parents. And that's something both of us have wanted for a very long time. We talk about names, traditions, family heritage, culture, etc. There's so much to look forward to and we have so much love to give! Hands down, the worst part about TTC is the stress and the waiting. Also up there on the list would have to be constantly being asked, "So, how's the baby-making coming along?" People mean well, but come on!
While we've been through so much already, we truly know our journey is just beginning. There is so much to look forward to and we have all the hope in the world that we will, one day, be blessed with a healthy and beautiful little baby... and if all goes well, several of them!
