Every Bird Should Get to Fly

This is one of my favorite commercials...I'm guessing unless you live in Washington State you haven't seen it. I don't know why, but it always makes me get all teared up. I think it has something to do with realizing a dream. Us infertiles go to great extremes to achieve our dreams...many times against all odds. Inevitably our journey isn't conventional and rarely one we'd pick, but hopefully brings us to a place that brings us a sense of fulfillment or realization.

the penquin did enjoy that the most. I was worried about the osterich. Hope it didn't have a heart attack. touching ad and applicable to so much.

Why that's cool, all choked up here too. I wonder what was going through the bird's brains during their flight...

*Sigh* I can't believe I'm missing Seattle because I miss the ads? But this one is good and in the context of infertile dreams coming true - even sweeter. Congratulations on your pregnancy! Best of luck.

Found you through ICLW...
