I'm hopping on the Crème de la Crème carousel as soon as it opens. But
first, best wishes for 2011 to everyone who happens to pass by here.

Those arriving from the CdlC list may find my blurb useful:
"Parenting thanks to ART, after what seemed forever. Now with more ART
in the hopes of a sibling for Linnea."
'More ART' being nearly two years spent, doing 4 IVF cycles, with only
1 lousy chemical PG to show for it.

As resolutions go, I don't have a long list. To name only one item, I
want to work on getting over it. It being the second round with IF. I
think one year won't be enough, not by a long shot. Small steps ...
Secretly, I hope a stroke of enormous luck will put the second round
behind us for good.

Borrowing the words of another blogger* - Linnea is enough, all I
could hope for, but yet I long for more.

*Hold my Hope.

Gosh - has it been that long? It really must be time for this stuff to work again.

Nothing wrong with longing for more...nothing at all. I just hope those longings can soon become beings.

I'm right there with you. Here's hoping that 2011 brings us both good news in one form or another.

Crap Lut, that is a terrible number of tries and an horrid amount of time.

Linnea is all, but you want more for her. I know, well, at least I think I do.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog for CdlC. This IF journey is so hard sometimes. But this community makes it just a bit easier. I'm hoping 2011 brings us both much good news.

I hope you have an enormous stroke of luck, too. (and not so secretly hoping for me, too).

happy new year - hoping 2011 is a good one.

hi lut,

thanks for coming by my place. i'm so glad to have found yours--someone who is in a similar place as me, although a bit further down the road. we've just started considering getting back on the ttc roller coaster again for a sibling for our hard-won daughter. but no one knows, not even my blog, because i am not ready to share the news with people i see every day yet. we also aren't sure if we'll ever be able to pursue ART again...but for now, the idea is back in our heads--we want another baby, someday. the rest is a lot of we'll see.

looking forward to reading your continuing adventures, and hoping they include a successful pregnancy in 2011.

Yep, Linnea is exactly *why* you're longing for more.

Agreeing with what Bea says - it's time for this to work again!!

Thanks for stopping by. Longing here too... for too long. Hoping for all of us.

Thanks for stopping by and reading, even if belief is hard to come by. I sort of feel, though, that if none of us believed at all, we wouldn't be here ... here being the craptastic place it is, of course. Easy for me to say; I'm almost done with my nine month wait. Still have to hope it's going to work out, though, and still have days when I'm not sure. Here's wishing that 2011 brings you a sibling for Linnea, and a reason to hope, if not believe.

Hoping you get that enormous stroke of luck in 2011 as write beautifully about the longing lots of us are struggling with. Thanks for putting that in words.

Just wanted to say thanks for your comment today... Wishing you heaps of luck and hope in this second go 'round with kicking IF's ass. May 2011 bring you what you long for...

All my best to you!
