IF Angels

On Wednesday I got to meet up with Ariel from wishing for my miracle.  It was so nice actually meet up with an online friend.  My husband was very nervous about the meeting.  Wondering if she would turn out to be some crazy internet stalker.  But he couldn't have been more off base.  She is my IF angel.  One of the sweetest people I've ever met.

After meeting up with her I was thinking about how much this virtual world of IF support has meant to me.  It has been so helpful to me to "meet" with others who are going through or have gone through infertility struggles.  Besides bonding over the same issues, I've learned a ton.  I feel like I know the right questions to ask and I feel more prepared for my treatments because of bloggers and Nesties.  You just can't get the same kind of knowledge from the little info packet from the RE office.

I know you all know what I mean.

So thanks to Ariel.  And thanks to all of you.

It sounds like there are many IF Angels out there floating around waiting to be found.

I'm so glad that your meeting went well and you have someone to connect with.

I think that is one of the most important things when struggling through IF.

The support from the blogging world is phenomenal...I have nothing like this IRL, so this has been my only outlet, and I'm so grateful I have it. :)

I could never express in words all that I have learned from my blog and nestie friends! I would be lost without them! Glad you have found your IF angel!

Just passing it forward, just passing it forward.

IF Angels are the best, online and IRL.

Amen!
IRL friends think I should be some kind of RE myself. It's all thanks to all the Nesties...
