The Magic in It All
a blog by Krissi McVicker, June 17, 2012
I was recently in Disney World with my family. It really was amazing because it was a place I always hoped I could take my children while I was struggling with infertility. It really did seem like a dream come true. My daughter, who recently turned 5, was completely enchanted, and the awe on my boy/girl twins' faces, even though they won't remember it at the tender age of two and a half, was priceless.
And, as an adult, I can take in Disney with a completely different look. A look of amazement and appreciation at how much the parks run like oiled machines, with unbelievable precision. It really is a miraculous place.
Take the show with Crush within "The Seas with Nemo and Friends" attraction at Epcot Center. An animation that interacts with live people? How do they do that? In wonder, I was asking myself the same question about the Spaceship Earth ride inside Epcot's spherical icon, the synchronization of the music and lights during the electric parade at Magic Kingdom, as well as the light show projected onto Cinderella's castle. The music, the sensation and the beauty of it all really is magical.
It got me thinking about infertility. And how much there's so much beauty, and magic behind the scenes of it all. How many times do we have to just accept what fate has given us in each cycle and rely on hope, a little faith and the wonder of it all? Can our bodies, our fertility doctors, our hormones, and our cycles really work with precision and well-oiled machines? Many times, yes. And when it does, magical things can happen.
Believe in your happily ever after. Dreams really can come true.
