Well, the Hail Mary cycle is officially a bust, so I’m off to my first official IVF appointment in the morning. I won’t say I’m not extremely disappointed, but at least I was still in active step-mommy mode when we found out, so I was too busy to wallow in a self-indulgent pity party.
I only hope that if we’re lucky enough to have a kid together, we get one that’s half as amazing as my step-daughter. At almost fourteen, she’s still so respectful, fun and helpful. It was truly a delight to have her for the week, and we already miss her desperately.
Already looking forward to Thanksgiving next year! If all goes well with the IVF stuff, it could be a challenge to host a house full with a newborn. But you know what? That’s one challenge I’m more than happy to take on.
