NIAW Give Away!

I have never done a Give Away on my blog but I figured "Nation Infertiliy Awareness Week" was a great week to have one.  Through all my twitter friends I discovered a great Etsy Shop "That's 2 Darn Cute."  She has lots of beautiful bracelets and several in honor of infertility.  So, I decided to order one for myself and one lucky reader.

"This bracelet features beautiful red beads and flat, rectangle black stone beads, with clear accents. For a special touch a small hope bead is added for a gentle reminder that there is always hope.

The Chance bracelet is special. I have made this bracelet in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week which is April 24-30, 2010."
My moto in life is keep it simple, so if you would like to win this AWESOME bracelet all you have to do is:
  •  comment on this blog post or say hi to me on my NEW Facebook page and tell me your favorite blog post. 

Give away closes at 6pm EST on Wednesday, April 27th!


  1. Well, of COURSE I'm going to comment! I love Suzy's bracelets, and you're one of my favorite Tweeps!

    I love your "Genetic Connection" post. Even though our situations aren't exactly identical, it still speaks to me. Wanting another, and the wistfulness and sadness in knowing that it probably will never happen, does not in any way diminish the intense love and gratitude I have for N.

    In my TTC #1 days, I said that I just wanted one. Just one. I couldn't understand the women with secondary IF struggling to conceive #2. Weren't they happy enough with what they had? Now, I get it. And of course I am so unbelievably happy and grateful at my good fortune -- I know how lucky I am -- and TTC #2 is nowhere near the emptiness and sorrow and just plain visceral FEAR as TTC #1. It's just different.

    But I feel guilty for this longing for another baby. I feel like I don't have the right to want another when I have been so blessed. Especially when I see so many struggling for #1 the way I did. I will never ever ever ever forget those days and that pain.

    But the longing is there. It just is.

    Anyway. So, that's my comment. I'm really glad to have gotten to know you a little bit through cyberspace.

    Also -- please do not choose me for the giveaway. I have two of Suzy's bracelets and as much as I love them, I think someone else should have a chance to experience her awesomeness. Deal?

  2. Thank you for purchasing the bracelets for you & a lucky reader! I'm looking forward to reading your blog!

  3. I've been following your blog for awhile now. I love reading it. Thanks for having a blog giveaway! (That's a beautiful bracelet!) :)

  4. I like reading your breastfeeding posts :) I especially liked your "infertile next door" post - lots of people, more than we know, have struggled w/ IF.

  5. I have so many friends that have struggled/are struggling with infertility. I can't even imagine because I am blessed with many children. I am not sure why I have so many infertile friends in my life. Sometimes I feel guilty for having my own kids. But I believe God puts people in our lives for a reason even though I sometime don't understand why. I have shared your blog with some of them as an encouragement. I think all your sharing has been and is helpful to many, so thanks. I am sure you will never know the lives you have/ and will touch. Things happen for a reason, good and bad. It so nice to see how blessed you are with a wonderful son. Sorry it took so much pain. Glad you can use your pain to help others instead of being bitter and angry. I wish you all the best.
