Thank you



Before heading back to normal programming {holiday gift guides coming right up} I wanted to write a big warm heartfelt thank you to everyone who reached out regarding my post on our journey to hopefully become parents. While I wish that there wasn't so many woman facing the struggle of starting, growing or deciding if they want a family all together, the truth is that we all have a similar situation in common and the lesson learned is that we are certainly not alone. I was wonderfully overwhelmed by the outpouring of support, love and understanding that came my way after sharing our story. To everyone who emailed me and trusted me with their own story, to the friends who texted that they are cheering for us. To the gals who offered to send books that helped them, recommendations on doctors in the area. To the woman who shared their success stories of IVF and shared photos of their smiling babies. I am so grateful for each & everyone of you. I fully understand why we don't discuss such things. It's soooo damn depressing and sad but the truth is we are all bursting at the seams wanting to talk about what we are going through. Bottling up all those feelings inside of us is just is too much to bear on our own. I am very aware my story isn't tragic. I wish I didn't know women who have had to deal with more severe situations then us but I do. Those are the women who inspired me to share my feelings. They encouraged me to start a conversation and I hope to keep that one going through our journey. Thank you everyone for all the thoughtful and encouraging words. The emails, the calls and the texts, I woke up the next day to so much love. I am so grateful to be supported by so many incredible women. Oh & to the few fellas that reached out, you are awesome too. We are now off to round two of our IVF journey. I'll be occasionally be updating our process as things happen for us to keep our story going. I am also here for anyone who wants to talk, please feel free to reach out to me at heidi@dooleynotedstyle.com anytime. xo.
