On February 13th, you held our hands and asked us to think positive thoughts as you retrieved the little follicle that would become the greatest gift we’ve ever been given. I must admit, after many unsuccessful attempts, I was skeptical. Karen & I knew all too well the disappointment of attempts that “didn’t take” and were hardly consoled as we watched those around us succeed, when we only failed. We had resigned ourselves to one last attempt before we gave up and bought a timeshare on St. Maarten. I’m not kidding.
Everything changed for us on that February day. We “drank the kool-aid” and stayed positive all weekend. After the subsequent embryo transfer, I confined her to bed and waited on her hand and foot, trying to keep her relaxed while we kept positive thoughts. Through the weeks of bed rest that followed, we experienced moments of total kindness. Friends and strangers alike prayed for us, offered us their energy, one woman even offered to carry a child for us! An incredible, if not unbelievably awkward, gesture. I read your emails aloud to Karen and we regularly drove to acupuncture. I TRULY BELIEVE that made the difference. Karen was so relaxed, I thought she’d been drugged. I’d never seen her so stress free. When I realized the acupuncture had worked it’s charms, I knew this was our chance. I could feel it.
On October 23rd, Mason Robert arrived. Two and a half weeks early and years in the making. I cannot thank you or your staff enough. You have honestly changed our lives forever.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Jeff & Karen
