I just wanted to say a big congrats to all of the bloggers who 
have received some good news and/or babies over the last few weeks. 
Lately these blogs have been filled with happiness and a constant 
source of hope for me and many other bloggers, keep the stories 
comin' ladies!

I just wanted to add one more hopeful story, although it is not mine, I 
am sure mine will not be too far behind. Last night I attended a long, 
beautiful, amazing birth. I know my job is to attend long, beautiful, 
amazing births, but this one was extra special. This couple, like many
of us, were struggling with infertility and this baby was three years in 
the making. After many treatments and a failed IVF they decided to 
try one last time with the transfer of their one remaining frozen 
embryo. The odds were against them but they DID get pregnant with 
a natural IVF cycle, acupuncture and the transfer of one frozen embryo. 
Finally after years of waiting their little girl was born, I could never 
describe how wonderful this day was, but by the look on mommy & 
daddy's face it was clearly worth the wait. 

Anyway, I just wanted to share another success story and hopefully
add to the good cheer!

    There were a couple more positives today amongst the bloggers, this is so exciting. With the way the year has started so far, I am certain we are all going to be blessed. Or at least I pray.
