It’s 11/11: Make a Wish (Part Four)

Every year on 11/11, we state our wishes, and every year, a few of them come true.  While so many wishes are out of our hands, a few of our wishes are within the realm of possibility, and it is so much fun to see people jump into each other’s lives and make dreams come true.

Here’s how this works:

(1) Make one wish in the comment section (and don’t believe that stuff about how if say it aloud it won’t come true. That is precisely when the parts that are within another human being’s control can come true).

(2) Then leave a comment on the blog of the commenter directly before you (so it’s a chain. #2 comments on #1, #3 comments on #2, etc. If the commenter above you didn’t leave an address, just go one above that. The point is to find new blogs/leave a comment – not stress).

The first person who comments on this post gets a free ride and does not need to leave any comments. The last person who comments on this post gets … screwed.

It would be nice within your comment to refer to their wish (if it ties in to the post you read and comment on) and if you can grant any part of it, to do so. If you can’t, because their wish is outside of human control, don’t feel badly. But if you have the power to grant a wish, why not do it?

In years past, people have seen each other’s wishes and realized that they have the power to fulfill it. And did so. Which is pretty damn cool.

I wish that we were able to pay for adoption and ivf without having to empty our savings. I wish even more that those weren’t our options to having a family.

I wish that my Beloved’s search for a better job will come to fruition, that we might be able to lessen our debt load and possibly get a little bit bigger home.

I wish R and I could agree to attempt just one cycle.

I wish for a place that we could call home that is big enough for us and our stuff, has the basic amenities and some outdoor space. It’s not easy to come by around here, especially when you have to contemplate a short sale to get out of the basement cave we call our cluttered but all mod cons home.

I wish this pregnancy will work out and we’ll finally have a second child, instead of a fifth miscarriage in a row. I wish I didn’t feel like being on bedrest was postponing the inevitable, I wish I felt joy about being pregnant instead of pure fear about what could happen next. I wish I never knew RPL and IF. (hah wish big eh!?)

I wish I find peace. Real, lasting peace.


7 Jennifer { 11.12.12 at 9:49 am }

I wish, I could get pregnant and it not result in a miscarriage….

8 Denver Laura { 11.12.12 at 10:27 am }

I wish I could get the guts to tell my co-workers that I deserve an adoption party as much as they deserve a baby shower.

9 Sharon { 11.12.12 at 11:09 am }

I wish I could have one night of sleep that was uninterrupted and as long as I want!

10 Amy { 11.12.12 at 11:18 am }

I wish that we can somehow turn our finances around and make progress toward having less debt, rather than only being able to try to maintain the debt we already have, sometimes even watching it grow with little we can do about it.

11 Jhaneel { 11.12.12 at 11:50 am }

I wish I could spend two weeks in Paris with my boyfriend.

12 Brid { 11.12.12 at 1:01 pm }

I wish that Denver Laura could somehow send me an address of her co-workers so I could write them a heads up!

13 Becky { 11.12.12 at 1:40 pm }

I wish hubby and I could find our way back to a strong relationship and marriage.

14 Denver Laura { 11.12.12 at 4:14 pm }

lol My wish came true. I got the guts and we’re having a “sip and see” as in, have some tea and meet the “baby” (2 year old).

15 Cristy { 11.12.12 at 4:15 pm }

I wish this upcoming FET works with no miscarriage or complication so that we can finally bring home our children.

16 Lori Lavender Luz { 11.12.12 at 4:25 pm }

I wish that the book I’ve written helps people approach open adoption with more awareness and confidence.

17 Jaclyn { 11.12.12 at 4:29 pm }

I wish that all my IF friends could have their happily ever after and that no one will ever have to suffer IF ever again.


18 Jaclyn { 11.12.12 at 4:30 pm }

I wish that all my IF-er friends will get their happily ever after and that no one will ever have to suffer from IF ever again!!!

19 Daryl { 11.12.12 at 7:20 pm }

Hmm…so many things. I wish my husband would get a job that fulfills and excites him, rather than one that makes him feel like he’s giving up on his dream (although, at this point, any old job will do). Oh, and for our upcoming IVF to work!

20 persnickety { 11.12.12 at 7:29 pm }

I wish I could get over the bitterness of my sister’s pregnancy. Sigh- I would like to think that if she had told me on any day other than the day my IVF cycle came to a bloody premature end I would be better, but I don’t know, which just makes me feel worse.
I wish that my body would get its act together and fall pregnant before the next cycle starts (feb).

But most of all I just wish I could find the joy in life again.

21 Mali { 11.12.12 at 9:48 pm }

I wish I could find some paying writing and/or contract work so that I could avoid the prospect of returning to full-time work again.

22 Chickenpig { 11.13.12 at 9:19 am }

I wish my husband would let us finish the cycle we started.

23 Krystal { 11.13.12 at 10:18 am }

I know i am late to the party, and im doubful of my wish anyways, so
i guess it dont matter……
I wish I was happy. Eventhough my daughter died, my husband doesnt support me having another baby and got a V, Everyone is sick of my grief and im just not happy with where I am in life turning 30.
I need some positive change inside me. I miss who I was before I lost Stella. Before my life was shattered.

24 Eliz { 11.16.12 at 8:08 am }

I wish my husband and I could have a baby together – no donors, just us. I wish that so hard it hurts.

25 clare { 12.06.12 at 4:23 pm }

I wish the anxiety would just go away so I could being more present in what is actually happening in my life, good and bad, and not losing so many precious moments to being down.

26 clare { 12.06.12 at 4:29 pm }

I wish my anxiety would be under control so I could start to really experience what is ACTUALLY going on in my life — good or bad — instead of worrying so much about what could be.
