International Comment Leaving Week (ICLW)

Today is the first day of International Comment Leaving Week. This is my first time to participate, so I'll give a brief overview. Thanks for visiting and commenting! :-)

Dave and I were diagnosed one year ago with infertility .We were told we had little to no chance of conceiving naturally. :/ We had always wanted to adopt after having at least 2 biological children, so we took this as a sign we should start investigating adoption. Even though we had one IUI after our diagnosis, we decided we couldn't financially or emotionally handle any more fertility treatments, so we are on the waiting list for domestic adoption. We're 4.5 months into our wait and trying to enjoy our time together as a free couple (while succesfully remaining impatient... haha!).

We're at the horse races this weekend and having so much fun! It's FREEZING (about 45 degrees right now... brrrr...) but we get SOO into choosing the "right horses" to bet on by reading their records, statistics, etc. and today made about $30 overall! (We make the $2 minimum bets on the horses we like, so that makes it pretty successful.) We LOVE taking trips together and this trip is definitely now an annual tradition! 

This is the horse that we placed a $6 bet on and won $30! (Now I just need to remember his name!)

Beautiful Horses
Tomorrow starts Infertility Awareness Week! I think I'm equally excited about spreading awareness and terrified about being very vulnerable online. Check back in this week to see a post every day!
