Dealing with the loss of a child is never easy, but it's even more difficult when you are an expat living far from home. Life will never be "normal" again and so now the challenge is to find my new normal.
I am now back in the USA and the proud parent of two daughters, born using two different egg donors. "Frostina" and "Olea" are the loves of my life and I feel so grateful for the amazing women who donated their eggs and made my family possible.
What a difference a few hours can make. After the terrible day I've had I almost didn't go to the wine tasting event I had scheduled with some friends. I'm so glad I forced myself to get off my couch and go. I had the best time tonight. I really do have some fabulous friends (who by the way had no idea that I've spent the entire day crying). I think the lesson here is to keep busier and not have so much down time. Or maybe it's all about the wine! : )
