The Frog Prince

The Frog Prince

How do I know that I am on a way to recovery to a Happy Life after Infertility?

We were invited to new neighbours many times, but somehow managed to delay going there (couple is approx 10 years younger as we, they are parents to a 4-year-daughter and 4-months-old son).  At the end it would be impolite do decline invitation any longer, so we went there in late afternoon.

I don't like all the children, but I found their 4-year-daughter adorable. When having a tour of their brand new house, she invited me to her room. And she asked me to read her a fairy tale. I did. She choose The Frog Prince. It was lovely 15 minutes - reading to a little girl.

BTW: It was the first day of my period yesterday. In the past, this combination would be a guarantee for having a heart broken for a millionth time.

I was OK yesterday. I can't say I enjoyed the visit (it is still painful to be around newborns). But -  I was OK.

Lovely 15 minutes with a little 4-year-princess & the frog prince helped.


  1. GOOD to know! I also love moments that tell me that I've gone further along in my healing journey. :-) And what a lovely memory with the 4-year-old. :-)

  2. What a great opportunity! I love to connect with children through books.
