I titled this blog, “Holding onto Dreams” because that is what I am attempting to do. This blog is my way of holding onto the hope that someday I will be a mother. The title comes from a line in Nickel Creek’s song, “Where is Love Now?” They are a band I love immensely, and this song (with its haunting melody) really brings home how difficult the journey of infertility can be; especially the second verse.

My goal with this blog is to keep myself sane and grounded, and to keep my hope alive. For those of you who stumble across this while on your own bumpy and stressful road to motherhood, I hope that it helps you, as well, even a little.

Lyrics for the “Where is Love Now?” are below, along with a video (I apologize for the quality – unfortunately Nickel Creek doesn’t have a YouTube video of the song, so this is a live recorded version).

Where Is Love Now?

If I could wait here for you,
Without hope or knowing what to do…
Watch the light fade away,
Without fear or knowing what to say…
Cry the tears from my eyes.
Leave me here long enough to realize.

Where is love now?
Where is love now,
Out here in the dark?

If I should hold all my dreams,
Through the night of the way life sometimes seems…
And if I can’t see which way to go,
I’ll stay lost in silence ’til I know.
Cry the tears from my eyes.
And leave me here long enough to realize.

Where is love now?
Where is love now,
Out here in the dark?

Cry the tears from my eyes.
Leave me here long enough to realize.

Where is love now?
Where is love now?
Where is love now?
Where is love now,
Out here in the dark?
Out here in the dark?
