Being a mom was the one thing I always wanted more than anything in the world.  Due to being diagnosed with endometriosis in my mid-20s, and being single, I decided to become a single mom by choice.  I was blessed to become pregnant with my daughter on my second try.  My little girl started asking for a sibling when she was 5.  I always knew I wanted two, so I started trying for a sibling shortly thereafter.  I found out almost immediately that I would no longer be able to have a child on my own because the endometriosis had robbed me of my ovarian reserve. I had to resort to other means, which eventually led me to embryo adoption.  From the time I started trying, to the time I was finally successful, 6 long years had passed. I tried a total of 6 times, 3 of which were negative, 2 were successful, but ended in miscarriage.  This last time, another, very generous, single mom by choice gifted her remaining anonymously donated embryos to me and I got pregnant on the first try.  I am currently 18 weeks pregnant, and I recently found out I'm having a baby girl. Throughout my journey, MudLOVE has been there to give me hope when I had none.  Your company as a whole has been a true inspiration, and your bracelets have been constant reminders to not give up.  The "hope" I have been wearing around my wrist all these years has filled my heart with just that--hope.  Words could never adequately express my gratitude for the unwavering support and encouragement your bracelets have given me on this most heartbreaking, yet most beautiful journey of my life.

Thank you seems so inadequate, but thank you!!
