  I found myself sitting down, pen in hand. Shaking my head each time I checked off a yes or no answer. Suddenly it dawned on me. Through out this journey I have felt a lot of things at this point. Sadness, emptiness , loneliness and yes even jealousy. But for the first time I realized, I was a bit angry too. How could it be that I sat here checking off boxes having to do with my home life, my job status and my education level while it seemed those around me were getting pregnant every day. Although I know that's not a fair way to feel, I allowed my self the few minutes to stare at the paper and wonder why me? 


  I know, I'm ahead of myself. Having a child is one of the only things in life that in fact, is about the finish line and less about the journey to get there. Whether you adopt, foster, use IVF, or have a natural child birth,Your baby is perfect, even if it was an imperfect journey. 

At least that's what I have been reassuring myself for what feels like an eternity. 

My name is Molly. I am 30 years old. I love the way it smells just before it rains, baking and being a mom. Wait, yes I did say being a mom. Present tense. I am lucky enough to be a mom to an awesome 10 year old boy. I had my first child at a young age and while he is the light of my life, I have always pictured having another. This is where my story picks up. I am working full time, and being a mom to a 10 year old boy and the best wife I can be to my always amazing husband. I want to make sure this is not a pitty story ,for you see, I have so much in my life to be thankful for. 

Realizing you want to have another child especially so long after the first is a process. I couldn't , we couldn't, well that would change things, we could , couldn't we? Do you follow? If not that's ok, I'm not sure I follow sometimes. The idea of another baby always sounded so whimsical and perfect, but then when you start getting into the details is where it always got a bit sticky.
