What a wonderful world

One of K's new books I recently got for her is called "What a wonderful world" -based on the song by Louis Armstrong. She loves the pictures, and is always "reading" it to me.

I say, what a wonderful world that I can blog on my own blog, natch it is owned by blogspot-but still- and tell my friends and family about my beautiful angel girl, and about our second miracle baby who is on the way.

Yes, it's my blog. It's my blog to be moderated as I so choose- and having to resort to "moderate comments" lately made me sad. How sad that there are people in this world who choose to nit pick at people, people whom they don't even KNOW, and push their views on them. Certainly I may have opinions about things in parenting and in life in general, but never would I think I NEED to go on a complete stranger's personal life blog and basically lecture them about what I think is "the right choice" in childbirth or feeding my child.

I started this blog after CJ and I endured 3 years of "unexplained" infertility HELL. Three years of failed attempts and more money than you can imagine, down the drain, and no baby to speak of. It hurt A LOT. We went to a therapist for "people like us": people who also were going through agony of trying to have a baby. I cried a lot. My personality changed. Forever. I made new friends along the way, and lost friends along the way. It was the most agonizing thing in the entire world to hear the doctor say "you should use donor eggs" (in order to attempt even getting PG).

But here we are. We got through it. On the other side: parents and expecting again. Thanks to endless prayers and energy and support from friends and family, here we are. Parents to one beautiful 22 month old and I am 23 weeks PG with another miracle. Thanks to the new 'sister' I have found in our first egg donor, Mooshie, and now thanks to the anonymous egg donor, who is a saint in my eyes for giving us baby Kyla inside me.

I am blessed. I am blessed to have wonderful friends and family who care, as well as "Internet" friends who care as well. Sometimes the support overwhelms me and brings me to tears (but CJ always says I am a crybaby :). I feel the love when I really need it. And that is all I need.

I blog to share with YOU, friends and family, the journey of my life with my dear husband, my wonderful furry puppy kids, and my Keifer girl. I shared with you my journey with getting PG the first time, and now the second. If you look at my title, it says: The journey of our family after undergoing IVF with Donor Eggs - we were successful and now it's life with baby and 2 dogs! Now we're expecting again, thanks again to donor eggs- this time with an anonymous donor. So buckle up and join us on our ride through parenthood and our second pregnancy!

So there you go. I don't need anonymous women coming on here lecturing me and I won't even blink when I delete the email letting me know that they have yet another comment for me. It isn't important. My life and my family is. I don't need to justify what I do as a parent, or the choices I make. I think I'm doing OK as a first time parent, and Keifer is a well loved, and happy little girl who is truly a miracle. What more do I need to say? Nothing! And that is that. :)

I am head long into my own DE cycle, and I can really relate to your emotions.

I too have had a recent influx of "anon" posters that seem to take issue with my words on MY blog, and to them I say... get lost.

The positive support I receive from this community far outweighs the nasty ones, thank goodness.

Much luck as you begin the countdown to your new little one.

Amen! No one should just until they have walked in someone else's shoes.

BagMomma, hugs to you!!! I hope you find nothing but support in the future!

(OK, I'll lay off the exclamation points now...) ;-)

beautifully said!!!! seriously. There is nothing I can't stand more than the occassional judgemental anonymous drive by. It's what poisons blogging in my opinion!

My first born is 22 months also and my next munchkin is also due in June....weird!! But you have girls and I have boys!!! :)
