And what do I follow this up with?
Well, I said there would be more, and more there will be, so consider yourself warned. Don't worry, there will still be plenty of other things 'round here, but I need to get some of this off my chest (and out of my 'drafts' folder, also known as my journal).
I have so many questions (though thank God, truly, for Alison, as I had some answered tonight) and so many emotions that have been so bottled up, but I thought I'd start here, with just one moment of the last 9 months that felt like a kick in the stomach:
Back in April, I was intrigued by Jennifer Fulwiler's Saint Name Generator. I had seen so many people who had received an appropriate saint for them and I thought I'd try it out. I prayed hard to St. Gerard and any other saint who might help make me a mommy and clicked the 'find a saint for me' button with high hopes.
And who did I get?
Here is my response as written in my journal:
St. Anne Line.
