She’s Here!!!

On April 12 we welcomed our beautiful and perfect baby girl into the world. She was 7lbs and 18.9in. She was born by c section due to being frank breech.

Today I am 36 weeks and 3 days.  It’s hard to believe that I’m only a few days away from being full term.   I look back on the last nearly 7 years of this journey and I can’t even believe that we are this close to holding our beautiful baby girl.   Just a year ago today my heart was dark and I truly felt that my husband and I would never be parents.   This journey has taught me so much, I have learned that bad things happen but it is up to us to decide if we will let it destroy us or if we will let something beautiful come from the heartache.  My husband and I have had nearly 10 years together, just the two of us…that time has allowed us to fully appreciate each other and it has allowed our relationship to have the kind of strength that can get through anything.  So despite so many years of crying, sadness, yearning, and feeling empty…I am thankful that God put this obstacle into our lives.  I never thought I would see the day where I was happy for going through so many painful years, but I am.   I also realize that having a baby is not going to “cure” us of infertility.   It is a pain that will be with us for the rest of our lives.   But because we have finally been given the most precious gift, I can now smile and know that miracles happen and even if there are more dark days ahead (for example, trying to give our daughter a sibling) I know that God has us in His hands and everything will happen the way it is meant to.
