What would you do?

What would you do, what would you give up to bring a healthy child into the world?

It seems to me, that once that child is born, you are supposed to be willing to do anything you can to keep that child safe and healthy.

But until that child is here, you are just desperate. Where is the line?

Perhaps I'm trying to go back in time to try to save what has already been lost, to do what I wish I had done when I had the chance.

No one can tell another what THEY would do. People that don't suffer loss and/or IF will never be able to get it. Hell, even us here in the shit of it don't get it and it changes day to day.

So we just struggle through, try on what feels right, to us.

I'm with G -- everyone has a different line in the sand, and you know, that's ok. Everyone's line is justifiable, and everyone's is legitimate, and the line has to do with them and their lives. I've known people who did precious little and gave up, and others who went to the ends of the earth. I support them all, and everyone in between because I understand they're coming from very different places.

Whatever your line is, I support you fully to there, and beyond.

I'm just at the beginning of this trip, just one loss in my rearview. I don't know how far I'll go or how much I can handle. Right now, it seems like I could go forever and just never stop until I get there. But maybe the future will look different a few miles down the road.

another question... what do you do when your best isnt good enough? I struggle with that every day.

I think that's one of the hardest things -- determining where that line is for you personally. But (as others have already said) the key word is "personally." And that's something that no one else can second guess.
