Pictures of the Tattoo

Here is the link to the blog post I wrote yesterday about the tattoo!


As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise You more and more.

Psalm 71:14

Alley Krista was my tattoo artist.  
Here is her website
She is on Facebook
She drew the words onto my skin

She free hand drew the tattoo onto my skin

Listening to a song while she was tattooing

Laura (one of my surrogate daughters) held my hand.  I love this picture

Erica- one of my bffs


B waiting

Another finished shot- It's a little puffy here

Happy to share the moment with friends

Sweet Laura- Isn't she beautiful!?!

Another finished

Seeing the tattoo for the first time

I'm now wearing my hope

He is such a great support to me

Our love grows stronger each day because of our love for the Father

Bandaging the new ink up

Hydrating- It's still pretty hot here in Bama

With Alley.  She did a GREAT job!

Love her- Erica

and LOVE her too!

Pulling up my hair

Adjusting hair and making sure I'm ready

I'm as happy as a clam. =D  

All of these pictures belong to me!  BUT feel free to share them!


  1. Looking good! We are so blessed to have such supportive husbands!

  2. I love that you got the word Hope tattoo. One thing I have learned going through this journey is hope comes and goes. It is something that we all should have though.

  3. Love it!!!! What a great idea. You look pretty amazing too, girlie!

  4. That is awesome. I love the tattoo. My husband had the word Faith on his arm and points to it each day to remind me that our faith in God will bring us our baby.

  5. Love love love the tattoo...I keep telling my husband if this first go round at IVF doesn't work I'm going to get one and oddly enough it will also be the word hope :)

  6. I love it! I have one tattoo I got before I got married, and I want more, at least one that has something to do to symbolize the strength and hope of our infertility journey. I just haven't decided "what" yet. I just love how you are "wearing" your hope as a daily reminder.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
