8 years...

I don't even have the words to say thank you for all that you have done and had to do this past year. There is no sugar coating it. The seventh year was harder than we ever thought it would be. It has been full of frustration, sickness, surgeries, financial stress and recoveries..You have navigated through all of this and never forgot the promise you made to me 8 years ago. I know that for every time I've been ready to quit and stop trying you have had enough perseverance and strength for the both of us. Thank you.

I wish more than anything we could have the family we planned on and dreamed about having. It seems like this is becoming more and more of an unreachable goal. One day....

You have also brought fun days & happy times into our life this past year. I am so grateful that you haven't let me sink. I appreciate every time you've push me to be as much of my old self as I can be. 

For every tear you've wiped away, every shirt I've stained with mascara, every early morning conversation, every horrible bad day you've had to endure, every time I've been stubborn, for the times that I've wanted to give up, for all of the days & some nights we have spent in doctor's offices and hospitals,for every TJ Maxx trip, for all of the laundry you've had to fold & meals you've had to cook......thank you.

You are my very best friend in this world.
I love you.
