There is no way to know beforehand if lifes big challenges will strengthen your relationship or pull it apart. Mike is a good man. Never once since our diagnosis have I felt like I was battling this alone.
I need to be a mother, and if I had to, I would go through this by myself, as many women do. I could handle the process, but I am not sure I could handle failure. I am pretty sure it would break me. Knowing that Mike and I will make it through this together and find a way to build a happy familywith or without a biological babyis an extraordinary comfort.
