When Collin and I first got our 'infertile' news, we processed it together as a couple, and made a game plan, and the very next thing I did was call my mom. She and my dad had been given the exact same news years earlier and I knew if anybody knew what I was feeling, she did. I don't know what I was expecting from that phone call, but she gave me more than I could have ever hoped for. She gave me the encouragement to put my best foot forward and to move on with faith. Between that advice and my dad's plan B advice, our lives have been a lot happier than I ever thought they could be.
My mom is a beautiful lady and I'm so blessed to have her in my life. Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!
