But, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that Father's Day is a difficult day for many. I can now say that I'm grateful for every messy detail of our infertility journey that led us to become Baby N's parents. But, that doesn't remove one bit of the pain we went through or the pain that still lingers. Again, I wouldn't change our situation for numerous reasons, but acceptance doesn't change the fact that a trial or a journey has been difficult.
So, to all of you that want to be fathers (or mothers) and are not on this day, I just want to say that you are thought about and prayed for. If not by name (because we don't know you specifically), then in spirit. And to those of you that might find Father's Day difficult for any other number of reasons, you are in our thoughts as well. May this day next year bring healing and what your heart desires.
