Today I meet my Miracle...

"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it." ~Psalm 118:24

This day has finally come...

The day I feel like I have waited my entire life for....

I am consumed by so many different emotions, and even though today is the day our lives change forever, for the better, it still does not seem real. I sit here in the dark. In the quiet of my home and reflect back on the past almost 3 years now of waiting for this miracle to enter our lives. This sweet, wonderful, tiny miracle created by the hand of God. My miracle!

This is the child that we have longed for....the child we prayed for and begged and pleaded for....the one we dreamed about over and over...the one we cried for and fought for....the one I have loved for almost the past 3 years of my life, even before he existed... and I am about to meet him face to face. My miracle that has been in the making for so long is finally made and is finally ready to enter my reality.

Today I will speak silently to God, prayers of thanks always on my lips and in my heart. I will sit here alone in the dark for a short while and feel my son kicking from within and cherish these last few moments in solitude of my miracle pregnancy before we are swept into a whirlwind of chaos and overwhelming emotion. I will remember everything we have been through to get to this exact moment in life and I will be thankful for the rest of my days that this is how our story ends...with a beautiful new beginning.

We all prayed with you... for you... beside you. All of us, regardless of which faith we have chosen to follow, walked beside you, holding your hand. Touching your shoulder. Stroking your hair. And hugging your heart. We all wanted this for you so badly, it ached in all of us. So today feels like it is a miracle for all of us, too. We are SO excited, and SO happy for you. I cannot stop crying and giggling all at once. :) We love you! <3

So I just recently (like yesterday) decided to join the world of blogging! lol I spent over an hour reading all of your past blogs. I cried with you, I laughed with you, I got angry with you. I enjoyed every minute of it! I'm just beginning on my TTC journey and your blog really inspired me to document my own journey. Congratulations to you and I can't wait to "meet" your son!
