Two Books I No Longer Need

I was looking through some old books in our shelves the other day and came across two that took me way back.  Thankfully, they are books I no longer need.    

The Infertility Survival Guide
The Infertility Survival Handbook

This made me realize that I absolutely do not miss those days, on any level.  Even during this time of wanting to get the wheels turning on our family additions, I have zero desire to walk down that path again.  My heart belongs to adoption now, and I am forever grateful for that.  Not only for our precious son, but for the miracle that adoption has been in our lives.

That's all.

I was cleaning things out for a yard sale two weeks ago and found 4-5 books that I ordered during those horrible IVF days...so glad to GIVE those away! I'm so there!

I saw a group of IF-related books at the bookstore today and thought the same thing...glad I'm not thinking about all of that anymore. :)

Last year I contacted the woman who ran the infertility support group I had been in and gave away extra meds. HUGE sense of relief when I went into that room and saw that some of the girls who had been in the trenches w/me were still there and I was not. Then this year I gave the books away to friends undergowing treatments. Again, I just thought, I am SO GLAD I'M NOT IN THAT PLACE IN ANY MORE.

It makes me feel so good to hear you say that, a few years ahead of me and Josh! We don't even have the first one yet (just got approved to start our home study this week) but I think reading all your posts and the posts of others, this is the path for us! Excited to hear about your next addition to your family!

Yes! The shackles of infertility are so foreign to me now, and yet, it wasn't that long ago. I have to say that for all the pain and agony of those years, I rarely think about it anymore. Thank God!

Beautifully said! I don't ever wish to go back to those days.
