Infertility kinda sucks.

Walking and Hoping


In 11 days, I’ll be driving to Atlanta for the 2011 Resolve Walk of Hope. I can’t believe I’m actually going, but it’s official: I’ve registered, set up a page, and posted a link on my facebook profile to ask for funds. So there’s no backing out now! Not that I want to back out, but I had a potential scheduling conflict that has now been resolved (haha. resolved. get it?).

My mom is coming with me; I can’t even say how excited I am about this. Not only because I love my mom and have so much fun spending time with her and am really looking forward to having an entire weekend with just the two of us, but because it represents how much she supports me and wants to do whatever she can to help me get through this. It makes me a little teary, in a good way.

It’s a 13 hour drive from Dallas, so we’ll leave early in the morning on May 13, do the walk on the 14th, and drive back home on the 15th. Probably not the smartest thing to do in the middle of wedding season, but I feel like it’s so important and since it’s enough in my control to be able to do it, I wanted to do whatever I could to make it work.

I’m curious about what it will be like, and how many people will be there. I don’t really know what to expect.

But I’m excited to get to be a part of it.

Here’s the link to my page if anyone is interested or wants any more information:
