Four Stockings

Last Christmas, all I wanted was another stocking hanging over our fireplace, another child in our family. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine there would be three new little stockings gracing our mantle. I am so full of love and gratitude that I tear up whenever I see these stockings. They represent a desire fulfilled after years of heartbreak.

This year was full! Full of delayed cycles, surgery, OHSS, bed rest and high protein intake, more surgery, hospital stays for me and the boys and finally, a home full of healthy children. I cannot believe how much our family has changed this year:

- I became infertile without IVF after my fallopian tubes were removed
- I carried triplets and became a mother of four
- My amazing mom moved in, making our home even more loving

What changed for you this year, the good or the bad?

Wishing each of you many more wonderful changes in 2010, and promising more posts. :)

Happy Holidays!
