On June 25th, a few girls from my RESOLVE group in Ohio joined me in DC to participate in RESOLVE's Advocacy Day. It was an awesome experience. We visited our two Senator's offices and two Congressmen. Obviously, there was a lot going on that day with Health Care Reform. We were there to ask our state representatives to co-sponsor the Family Building Act of 2009 which includes infertility in insurance coverage. Even though we have stopped treatment, this cause is very important to me as we had no coverage for our IVF attempts. Hopefully, we made a difference and our voices were heard. So for all of you out there still pursuing treatments and still paying out of pocket for everything, know that we went and fought for you on The Hill!

That is how many hits we have on our online profile as of today. Kind of cool, kind of depressing since we aren't matched! These past few weeks I have definitely gotten the taste of what waiting feels like. In the span of two days last week I found out 7 people are pregnant. Lots of activity also going on with other friends that are adopting. Here I sit frustrated with our position. It seems like whenever we take a few steps forward , duty calls, and we step back a few more. Needless to say I am not looking forward to these next 6 months apart from Greg. It is so hard to keep the faith that we will be matched when it is our time. I do honestly believe that, it's just so hard with things are moving along for others.
