I am so grateful for my family and all of the wonderful people who share my world. I'm also fortunate to love what I do and to work at a facility that helps people every day and shares my value system. What else could a girl ask for?

I am thankful for so much.  I am truly thankful to come to a place to work that truly changes peoples' lives.  I am thankful to be part of the RMACT team and for supportive co-workers and senior staff.

I am thankful for my mother and brother who are truly sources of unfaltering love and support. I am thankful for my friends who accept me for who I am and are always there for me. I am thankful for my extended family here at RMACT who throughout the years has been there for me. I am thankful for laughter because it gets me through the toughest of situations many times.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thanksgiving Gratitude   3The Miracle

Oh gratitude, speak, scream, cry.

Thank the Gods and the Goddesses for the miracle of life,

For the producers of seeds, the stars,

For the ever pregnancy of our mother earth,

For science and its doctors,

Their philosophy and curiosity that inquire them

To help nature in the process of evolution,

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to be part of RMA-CT where I can offer my hand

To many humans beings in need of the gift of a complete family.

 

Oh gratitude, do not be silent,

Let us all gather during this Thanksgiving Day,

Call all our children, the diamonds of our lives

To celebrate the magnificence of our extended family

And while the world is lit on fire,

Let us light it with the flame of love.

The solid foundation of a supportive and encouraging family who have allowed me the room to dream big, aim high and catch me when I stumble is what I am most thankful for this year.  I feel incredibly thankful for my RMACT family as well – I know how lucky I am to be surrounded by these dedicated, generous, smart, and funny people and am incredibly proud to be a part of this practice.

I am thankful for my health and the health of my family which allows me to “pay it forward” in this amazing field of reproductive medicine.  Whether it’s helping to physically build RMACT’s future, running a Ladies Night In session with Lisa or even answering a patient’s cry for help at 10pm on a Saturday night it’s what I live for and what I am thankful for every day. Thank you for taking care of me as a patient 11 years ago, for my two beautiful girls that will be 10 this May and of course supporting me through this most recent RMACT project.

For some lighter iPark related humor, I am most thankful for a brilliant team of architects, designers and contractors, the amazing wall covering that’s about to go up, the carpet in the den, the gorgeous, huge utility rooms, the paint color “smoked oyster,” perfect weather that kept us on schedule, and I will stop now.

I am thankful for so many things – my health, my children, family and loved ones. I am truly grateful for making new friends and keeping the old ones.  I am thankful for the smooth transition I’m making here at RMACT – I have found that my coworkers have really embraced me as if I have been a part of the team for years . . . That is not something you find at every job.  Not only has the staff made an effort to welcome me with open arms and warm smiles but so have the patients, even while going through their own ups and downs here.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of love, laughs and food.
Akilah M.

 

Thanksgiving Gratitude   4I cherish every day and I am grateful that every day is an opportunity to start something new. I am thankful for every person in my life that offers me support along my journey, those who bring me joy, the ones that make me laugh, the ones that listen to me and the ones that trust me to listen to them. I am thankful to RMACT, personally and professionally, and could not be happier for being part of the team.
Danna C.

 

I am thankful for my loving family!! Those here today and those that are no longer with us. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.  My heart would certainly not be this full!! They keep me on my toes and always smiling.

I am thankful for laughing, for I feel it is the greatest medicine.

Last, I am thankful for my warm bed, the food to feed my family, and the loving hugs that I am so blessed to receive! Happy Thanksgiving all!!!!
Meghan S.

 

I have so much to be thankful for, a wonderful husband and my two beautiful children that give my life a purpose in a way that I never imagined.  I am grateful to work in a profession and at RMACT where coming to work is something more than “just a job”. 

I feel fortunate and thankful to spend time with family and friends on the holidays and to not take for granted that I have a roof over my head and a beautiful meal on the table.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Here is a thanksgiving quote that I like by John Fitzgerald Kennedy: “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” I am thankful for my friends, old and new. My family including my 80 year old parents…how lucky we are to still have them and their wisdom. My daughter who brings daily joy to my life. My pets who love me no matter what. My colleagues and co-workers who work hard and truly care about our patients as well as each other on a daily basis. Google who has taught me the difference between colleague and co-worker. My health – how lucky to be breathing, walking and even dancing.  Last but not least, God, who watches over and cares for all of us. Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for my dad who has not been in the best health, but still insists on bringing me coffee every morning :)  I'm thankful for my boyfriend who has helped me through all of my dad's health scares, and my family who always helps each other.
Melissa P.

 

Thanksgiving Gratitude   2I am thankful for a family that has taught me unconditional love, a husband who makes me lighter than I am, and a job that continues to teach me the power of hope and resilience.
Amy M.

 

I am most thankful for my family. I am beyond grateful for my dad and his health and his awesome recovery after having his heel completely re-constructed & being in and out of hospitals for over a year. He is the strongest person, mentally and physically that I know and still manages to do everything for our family. I am thankful for my mom for holding it together and always smiling, my sister for being her crazy self, and little brother who keeps me young. And my boyfriend who I recently moved in with and still loves me!
Jill L.

 

I am so thankful to be part of the process by which our patients can build their family, regardless of the outcome. I never take for granted how special I feel to be an integral part of someone’s journey and never tire of calling someone to tell them that they are pregnant.

I also realize that the staff at RMA CT is incredibly special and am grateful to be a part of it.
Monica M.

 

I am most thankful for my health, to be able to wake up every day and enjoy my time with my loved ones. I am also thankful for being blessed with a new wonderful marriage and 5 step children, whom I truly adore…. Being able to work for RMACT itself is rewarding. I love what I do and am VERY thankful to be a part of this family…May you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Kim K.

 

I am thankful first and foremost for my family. My healthy, thriving children that are happy and full of love & hope for the future, my wonderfully loving & supportive husband that is a rock. Time and time again he proves there is nothing we can’t accomplish without each other, my parents, for their love not only for me, but my children; there isn’t a time they haven’t dropped everything to be there for us, my brothers & sisters and numerous nieces and nephews.  I am grateful for the memories we are creating for our children. They are all filled with such love for each other. My friends. I have the best friends in the world. I love our chats, I love that we are at a point in our lives that we can laugh and cry in the same conversations. And lastly, I am forever grateful for the work we all do at RMACT. I look forward to going to work everyday and for that I am grateful!
Alicia M.

 

Thanksgiving Gratitude   5I am thankful that each day I wake up in a place where nature’s beauty is easily accessible.  I am grateful for good health, my close-knit family, for all the people who have faith in me. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with people who are interesting, passionate and dedicated.
Elaine M.

 

This year is a tough year for my family. This is the first thanksgiving without my dad. So first off, I am so grateful for all the amazing time I got to share with him. I am so grateful that he was able to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day. He was my biggest supporter who always told me I am capable of anything I put my mind to. I am also grateful for my mom who has been such a rock for our entire family. My sisters and brother who know exactly what to do to make me mad and laugh 'til I’m crying but I wouldn’t trade them for anything. And to my wonderful husband who has been the one to keep me going every day. And to everyone at RMACT for your kind words through the toughest time of my life, thank you for being there when I just needed someone to cry to or a simple hug.
Janie D.

 

I am thankful for coffee in a pretty mug, time to go for a run with my husband, happy children in my bed at 5am, and the two pregnant mommas in my neighborhood that will both deliver RMA CT babies next Spring!!!
Kristen H.

 

I’d like to share a nice image from yesterday with everyone:

After a successful initial pregnancy scan in Trumbull yesterday, I watched through the big windows the couple walk out to their cars together and give each other a very tender, long and meaningful hug before they got into their respective cars.  I am thankful that we can give our patients these special moments together in their life’s journey.
Happy and meaningful thanksgiving to all!
Joshua H.

 

I am most grateful to my family; for my sister who has always kept my secrets, my father who has always made me laugh, my mother who always knows just what to say, and my husband who accepts me just as I am.
Kate D.

 

I am most grateful for my husband who has been by my side from when I thought I could handle things on my own and who has never given up on me.  For my parents and my sister – without them I would not be as successful as I am without their support from switching careers and have pushed me to never give up and go for the highest of stars. (Even if tears are/were involved).  Lastly, I am grateful for my twin daughters whose personalities brighten up any kind of day.  They are my pride and joy!   
Beth B.

 

Thanksgiving Gratitude   6I am thankful for another year with my wonderful family and friends.  I am blessed with the greatest sister, the most supportive husband, a mother with a heart of gold and three adventurous sons.  This year I have been given the opportunity to not just work but learn from the incredible team at RMACT.  I have always believed it is the little things in life that are important and that every day is a blessing.
Kelly L.

 

This year, I am thankful for the opportunity to join the RMACT team. I now look forward to coming to work every day, and being a part of an incredible team, so committed to our mission of providing compassionate and supportive care for our patients. I am also eternally thankful for my family and friends who provide me with ongoing support and encouragement. Happy Thanksgiving!
Matt B.

 

I am thankful for all the people who work with RMACT. They are so special and work tirelessly to help our patients meet their goals. Every person at RMACT is part of the puzzle that makes it all happen. And, I thank our patients for allowing us to be part of their life.  Thank you and have a great Thanksgiving.
