Merry Christmas from The Kofoeds!

Christmas Eve is here!  We’re feeling richly blessed – most of all – by
all the people in our lives whom we love so much…our family, and so
many Brooklyn friends that will forever feel like family.  We hope to catch up with as many of you as
we can over the holidays.  We’ll be in Arizona for a few days eating tamales, playing with nieces and nephews, going on cook-outs in the desert, playing lots of games (& ping pong), marveling at the huge grocery stores and parking lots, visiting with siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles, and eating lots of great Mexican food. 🙂  Oh, and Les Miserables!!!!  🙂 🙂  We are way too excited.

And, our hearts are full to the brim this year with amazement for what this last year has been like for us.  I mean, how is it that I’ve been blogging now nearly every day for over a year?  This is nuts (I seriously had never even thought about being a blogger before and knew nothing about it.  I really never even had time to read blogs.  ha!  So it’s just crazy that this has been my life now for quite some time.)  BUT, we have been so surprised, delighted and really quite blown away by this whole thing that I can’t stop.  And I’m just SO grateful that somehow (by some miracle!) this blog has extended our connections to all of you.  I’m so glad that we can have discussions here about things that matter so much and can help us be better/happier/brighter in our lives and relationships.  It is my dream that as you see yourself rising to new heights, that you, too, may pass on any bit of wisdom or richness that you have received in your lives.  We are all in this together.  And together, we can (& are) changing the world.

We love you all.  We’re deeply grateful for the kindness, wisdom, and love you have shared with us.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.  We’ll see you back here in the New Year.

P.S.  Just after Christmas, we’ll start up the medications for
IVF.  We won’t know the results of it for awhile as this will not be the
traditional process (it will involve freezing the embryos in between some treatments.)  And, who knows if we’ll have any bumps or delays along
the way (very likely, as is the case with these things 🙂  But, we’ll keep you posted here and there.  This
journey of infertility has been one of the greatest blessings of my
entire life.  Not a stitch of anything I write on this blog would be
here without it.  So it’s a journey and a process I hold sacred.  No
matter what happens, we will embrace it and all will be well.  That, I
know.  🙂

    Happy new year and I pray the ivf goes well. If it wasnt meant to be there is always adoption, even volunteering your time and being a mentor to a child or teenager.
