Walk of Hope

By dear blogsters (blog sisters) :-)

Pace and I are walking in the Walk of Hope tomorrow. This is an annual local event that is put on by RE.SOLVE. This will be our first year walking and they have some pretty amazing "door prizes" The main prize - A FREE IVF!

I am really trying not to put too much hope into winning this prize, and there are certainly other women out there that could probably use it better, but it is a little exciting to know that IF we win this prize...we may actually have a shot.

Please be praying for us if you are of the praying type tomorrow - not to win the IVF, but to find peace among fellow infertiles, to be able to use our journey to encourage and strengthen others and to find hope from those who are "resolved."

Tomorrow is going to be an emotional day, but I am so looking forward to it. I am so excited to meet other women in my community that have the same heartache and pain that I do. And honestly...I am REALLY hoping that Pace will meet a really cool guy or two that he would want to hang out with. It would be nice to have more IRL IF friends.

Have a great weekend blogsters...I will update you all either tomorrow or Monday on how the walk went and hopefully with some pics!

Have fun tomorrow. I will pray that you will have fun and at the same time find peace and tranquility among others that are facing the same issues as you and me...

The walk of hope sounds really great; to meet others like you and find comfort from them, and to not feel so alone in your battle. I like how you decide to set aside special time to reflect on your past infertility as well as hope for the future and that you share that with others and participate in encouraging them. If there is a walk of hope in my area, I believe I would do it too! Plus, I think you would be very deserving of the free IVF - truly!
