Why do I have to pay for something that should be free?

We had our first appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist today. The appointment went well, but I left feeling depressed. I feel like pregnancy is only that much farther away, when I assumed I'd be feeling more confident that it would be happening soon.

We expected to learn that we would be paying a significant amount to have some medical assistance, but never the amount that they presented us with this afternoon. It makes me angry that we have to pay for something that is free for so many others. We may have to put off buying a house so that we can have a child, how is this fair? Well it's not! Sometimes life just isn't fair and I'm learning that the hard way. The worst part is that we may pay all this money and come away empty handed! I'm trying not to think that way and to stay positive but I have to be real & honest with myself as well.

We are left wondering what the next step is. Get a second opinion? Use our savings, or put it on credit? Should we wait or just do it now?
All I know is to pray, and hope that God will give me the answers that I seek.

I hope I have that winning lottery ticket. :)

27th Birthday Celebrations!!

I had an incredible week long birthday!

Josue and I went to Las Vegas the weekend before. We stayed at Treasure Island with Frank & Vanessa. It was a blast! My boss even sent chocolate covered strawberries & champagne to our room, it was so sweet!
On my birthday my Mom & Sister took me out to a yummy meal at Benihana, my fav! Then we had cupcakes and opened some awesome presents at home. I love my Mom, she always makes me feel so special! Just when you think my birthday was over I had a family celebration at my Nina's house on Saturday. We had an amazing BBQ, and yummy treats. As always I was spoiled with love and generosity. I really love my family, they are amazing!

 Yay!! My Mom's the best! Kitchen-Aid Food Processor!

Yummy Low Carb Desserts!
