I used to think January was a boring month. As much as I like new starts + fresh slates + new calendars, it seemed like a bore following Thanksgiving + Christmas + all the preparations between.
But then, several years ago, January became a pivotal month in my life ...
Jan. 23, 2002 - Greg proposed.
Jan. 28, 2004 - I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
Jan. 20, 2006 - I was diagnosed with endometriosis, one of the complications in why we couldn't/haven't gotten pregnant, after a minimally-invasive laparoscopy surgery.
Jan. 18, 2007 - We met Cate's birth mother for the first time at a doctor's office in Bloomington, Ind., and saw Cate for the first time on an ultrasound.
