One Year

Sofia is 17 weeks and 1 day old

One year ago today, Sofia started her morning in a petrie dish up in Rockville, MD.  Later that day, she and two of her sibling blastocysts were transferred into me and the rest is history.  Sofia has been with us for one year now.  I can't believe how much has changed in only a year.  I can't believe that the little cell I saw in the picture they gave me has turned in the beautiful baby girl that lights up my world.  What did we do before she was here?  I don't know and I don't really care to remember.  Because she is here.  She is ours.  We made her.  And nothing can ever take that away.


  1. It's amazing something so beautiful started out as a tiny little cell. She is gorgeous!

  2. I love that she started her day in a petri dish and now here she is!!!

  3. What a beautiful daughter you made and what a special day indeed. It's amazing when you look back and can barely remember what life was like without her. Your story has always been so inspiring to me, when I think I can't do it anymore, I remember that you did IVF 5 times!!!! And I see the outcome, the beautiful prize and it makes me never want to stop trying. xoxoxoxox

  4. I think about this amazing fact all the time! How can that picture of those blasts that were transfered into me be my Morgan??? Its just soo hard to fathom!

    Happy on year anniversary of having Sophia in your life!! She is just too beautiful for words! XOX
