Time goes by so fast….
My husband and I were married for 8 years before we were able to get pregnant. Every month my heart was ripped wide open when the monthly reminder reared it’s ugly head. We decided to adopt and started the lengthy process of open adoption. We had to create a photo album depicting our life and attend countless workshops. Our albums were then given to the birthmothers and we waited and waited and waited.
All of a sudden Joe got very ill. He was sick to his stomach and feverish. It took his illness to make me realize that my period was late. I took 2 home pg tests and went to the health center to have a blood test. The result was the same. I WAS PREGNANT!
My children are so precious to me. Sometimes life gets in the way and I start to feel like I am not being the mom I should. Or I have a hard day at work and am grumpy towards them. I am trying to really pay attention to this. My babies are a gift from God and I cherish them so. I am not the loving gushy type but I do show my kids that I love them. I don’t coordinate their clothes and most of the time I let them dress them selves. Martha Stewart I am not. I just keep reminding myself that God knows my personality and He gave me these babies.
