Seriously though, I am really lucky. Adam is my best friend. I am so grateful I met him when I did...back when I was just 25! To have to go through life alone is really tough. I see this with my single clients who are opting to have a baby on their own, as they feel they have no other choice, and with my clients freezing their eggs because they are single and worry that time is running out, but are not yet ready to have a baby on their own. As heartbreaking and difficult as infertility is, as long as you have enough money and are open to all available options (egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation, gestational carrier, etc.), you can have a child, but you can't make a suitable life partner happen. In fact, in my opinion, being with the wrong person is worse than being alone!
So yes, I am very fortunate to have such a great, supportive husband and I am really looking forward to this weekend. Friday and Saturday I work, but then the girls are sleeping at Adam's parents' place Saturday night, so we have a date night. Sunday we will find something fun to do as a family, and Monday Big A has a lunch date with her boyfriend and then a few girlfriends coming for dinner (who could not attend her party last weekend because of Brownie Camp). Aside from some chance of rain, the weather report looks pretty good, so it should be great.
Have a happy, healthy long weekend!
