Earlier this month we found out that our seventh and final IVF attempt had failed. There were lots of tears and a great deal of heartbreak, but also, in so many ways, just a sense of relief. I felt relieved to finally be able to end the hormones and get my health (and in so many ways, life) back. The past two years have been devastating for us—it is time to close the door and start a new chapter. We are reading up on adoption and are hopeful it’s in our future. Being that I’m American, Simon is British, and we live in Denmark, the adoption process may be extra complicated for us, but we will find a way. Tomorrow, we’re off to Marrakech for five days of much needed relaxation. Morocco is such a magical place and I can’t wait to get lost with the man I love (Simon, you really are the most wonderful thing) in one of my favorite cities. I’ve also booked a February trip to India with my dear friend Jane (and have my January trip to Japan), so despite not being pregnant, I have many things to look forward to and be grateful for. Thank you, sweet readers, for all your support throughout our infertility journey. I know in my heart Simon and I will grow our family someday and it will be everything we ever could have imagined. Somehow, this new path seems it was meant to be. Love, Katie
