human KINDness - Molly

Hi Molly, I managed to stumble across your blog one day while bored at work :). I just wanted to let you know how happy I am that your levels are up and things are looking good for you. I am 14 weeks pregnant with my first and can't imagine what you are going through, I admire so much your courage and strength. I work in the Los Angeles Temple and put your name on the prayer role earlier this week and have had a constant prayer in my heart that things go well for you. I just wanted to send you  a little note to let you know that thoughts and prayers are constantly with you. Even from strangers! Good luck and I will keep in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks so much for your example.
Molly, I've just spent hours reading your blog getting updated. It is quite a journey. I have hoped for this for you for years. I'll continue to pray for you and Jason. Thank you for sharing.

Molly, I am so excited for you and Jason and your growing family!  I will be thinking about you on Monday and sending prayers and every bit of good energy your way.  This is such a long, bumpy road you have been on and will only make you cherish your baby(ies) even more once they are here.

To Molly, I came upon your blog the other day and as someone who has also been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, I can relate to much of what you expressed in your blogs. I am a very private person and generally don't like to share this type of information, especially with people I don't know.  But I felt so much of what you described, that I couldn't not email you.

Hey Molly!! Just wanted to drop you a note to say my thoughts and prayers are with you and those two little babies! Thanks so much for sharing all the details of your journey! It helps to know I'm not alone. 

Molly, Wow, egg retrieval. You poor dear, what a journey you and Jason have been on. Thanks for sharing such an incredibly personal, intimate roller coaster ride. I'm glad it went well today. You seem as happy and positive as ever (I'm sure you have your moments) and its inspirational.

Hey Molly, just wanted to drop ya a line to let you know that you have been on my mind a lot lately. Praying for you and Jason. May God pour out His blessing upon you both.

Hi Molly! I wanted to tell you I read your blog and you are in my heart and in my thoughts. We tried for a year and a half, then we were able to concieve... The range of emotion we went through was... Unlike anything else. I truly feel for you. That being said, there's not a doubt in my mind that you'll get and stay pregnant! You are going to be such a loving, kind, and fun mother!

Molly, just want to let you know I love reading your blog. You are really amazing and wonderful. I know you will make a great mom someday.

Molly, I have been thinking of you everyday! I love your new blog...What a strong and amazing person you truly are. I hope everything today really helps with the best to come!

Molly, Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about you. We had to undergo 3 procedures before we were able to conceive...and then there was only a 50% chance. Miracles do happen! 

Molly, I have been reading your blog, and I feel like I am there with you every step of the way. I thought that it would be good to tell you that though, so you know that you have one more person praying for you and sending good thoughts. I have PCOS which is one of the big causes of infertility, and I constantly worry that getting pregnant will be a struggle for us. I can't imagine anything more frustrating than wanting to be a mom, being responsible, making all the right choices so that you will be a great mom, and then being denied that privilege of motherhood. Just know that you are not alone, and I admire you for being the strong and compassionate woman that I knew and looked up to so long ago.  

Molly, A good friend of mine has been struggling with getting pregnant too and has been very frustrated for a very long time. I've sent her the link to your blog and have urged her to read it and reach out to you. I also want you to know that what you and Haylee are doing is so incredibly brave and inspiring. You are giving those who struggle a voice and that is commendable. You, Haylee and those struggling are all in my prayers.

hi molly, this email may sound so random, but i felt like i should write you.  i have been following your blog and your process of getting pregnant.  i am hopeful for you and appreciate how much you are willing to share with so many.  i look forward to continue seeing happy news posted :-)  i miscarried in the fall (early) and am sorry for all the sorrow you have had to go through, but your faith helps me try to be more faithful as well.  i just wanted to let you know it makes a difference for at least one person!

Molly, So because I posted on your showed up on some of my friends' newsfeeds. Two girlfriends texted me.  One said she was bawling her eyes out reading it and said she will keep you in her prayers.  The other just did her 3rd round of IVF (has a 1.5 yr old from the 1st round) and is now 12 weeks preggo.  They, along with so me -- including me, are rooting for you and these babies big time!  I just know you are going to carry full term :)

hey Molly - read your last blog posts while sitting at the airport (doesn't everyone catch up on their reading at the airport?? lol) When I was at one of the Buddhist temples in Japan, I made a wish for you and Jason. The monks will pray over my wish for one week. That is very good luck in Japan. Hope those hormone levels stay high! Sending hugs and best wishes your way from all of us :) 

 These are just some excerpts of emails I have gotten. I am inspired and uplifted by all of the KIND words, thoughts and prayers. Humans are truly compassionate and I feel so blessed to have received so much of it in the past few months. We didn't start this blog because we were looking for sympathy. We started this blog to process our thoughts, journal our emotions and document our experiences. All of this has been a total and complete BONUS. 

I am excited for my blood test on Wednesday. I am nervous as well. I cannot wait to share the news - good or bad - because I know what ever it is, we are supported and loved. 
Human KINDness. It's a wonderful thing.
Thank you.
