Baby, infertility, Life

Hello from the Dirty South

My husband was offered an exciting new job opportunity in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area last month. So in what felt like about a 3 second timespan we put our house on the market, resigned from our previous jobs, said our goodbyes and moved 1,000 miles.  So now I'm suddenly a stay-at-home-mom in a small town… Continue reading Hello from the Dirty South

Since I can't fill my… Continue reading Empty Womb Syndrome
