The Blogosphere is a LifeSaver and You Can Be Too

A little over a year ago I was drowning in the sea of infertility. And I felt alone. Very alone. Here in Arizona I didn't have many friends, and those I had were quite fertile. Nobody understood, or even if they did, they really couldn't encourage or comfort me. I took to blog hopping and began connecting with others who truly did know what I was going through. After my miscarriage in May I relied upon these bloggy buddies to give me hope. I found an amazing bunch of bloggers, brought together and connected by the one and only Melissa, aka Stirrup Queen . Over the past year I have been through ups and downs, both my own and those of my bloggy buddies. And from here I can see that I am a much better person for it. As awful and heartbreaking as things have been, I'm glad to have lived through it.

And now I have a favor to ask. Please click on the box to the right to find out how you can help the March of Dimes by donating to "Team on the Road" organized by the amazing Melissa, aka Stirrup Queen . Read her thoughts, and her mission, and donate to help babies. You will be doing a wonderful thing. And your heart will swell and you will feel wonderful. I do.
