This afternoon we are doing it.
We are finally sharing our struggle with our parents. We decided that sending an email would be the best way for us to tell them everything we wanted to say to them without turning into an emotional mess or being bombarded with questions right away.
We are SO ready to be done with this secret keeping. It is too hard. We're tired of pretending that life is grand. We're tired of coming to family gatherings prepared with responses to baby questions. We're tired. We're broken. And most of all, we're tired of smiling about it.
So there you have it. After tonight, we will be out of the infertility closet to our parents. I'm sure after I push send on that email I will be neurotically refreshing my email for the rest of the evening to see what they have to say about our 2.5 year secret. Please, please pray that this goes well!
