I am speechless, and that doesn’t happen often.

Reading the story of a funky, big hearted lady about to give birth to her baby, who was a lovingly donated embryo – from another blogger!! People amaze me.

So does this video, which I shamelessly ripped off of her website. It made me cry cry cry…happy and sad tears.

When people are united by those things we all want – love, acceptance, hope – how powerful we are both as individuals and as a community.

I really recommend you taking the next three minutes to watch this. Love is stronger than fear.

Can’t figure out how to embed this into this entry. Any help is appreciated!


Am I a creepy stalker?

ohmygod. She had her baby. Go see!

I had to speed walk to the bathroom at work so I could tear up in private. Not only has a terrific mother and daughter been born, but FUCK. This is proof that pregnancy leads to babies!

I looked at my sideways profile, touched my bump, and promptly had some chest pains which pretty much eliminated my need to sob on Tatiana’s behalf.

I haven’t felt the niblets much today. Apparently they are the size of apples. Maia (Tatiana’s baby) looks like a BIG baby hulk in comparison. Imagine an apple that big.

(I have an apple I want to eat because the potatoes are likely to be icky, but I threw up an apple last night at it looked like worms, so I am afraid. My brain is working hard to make everything gross. I coughed up some chewed muffin a minute ago and instantly thought it looked like a maggot. Fuck you, brain!)

…There was a lot more to this entry and it was all erased. But I know I said that I was so happy for Tatiana and her family. It’s very, very rare I find bloggers I think I would like in person, and she is one of them.

I may now go look at that gorgeous picture of her and Maia again, though my attention is always drawn to the blood on her hand. Ha. And the cute baby hat.  And then back to that delicious looking baby.

I’m in: it’s official. I’m a member of the IVP.

Anyone on WordPress know how to add little things like this to your sidebar? You know, if you are cheap and have the free account..?

(This site is kickin’, by the way. All you mamas-to-be might be interested….)
