The Story Of You......

In the beginning....long before there was me.....God already knew about you.

For me. you started with a PRAYER in the middle of the night, when I had been giving too many of my days to fear and anxiety about things I couldn't control,

God, please give me something bigger than what I am going through....something to help me refocus and find my joy again....


Two weeks later. you BECAME. there you were two little lines on a positive test. I prayed again,

God, are you sure I am ready for this? Can I do it again...where will I find the love to give....


Four months later. YOU became so real to me. in a profile picture of your sweet little face, you were mine and I was yours

God, I give it all to you...I surrender my fears and worries....I am blessed beyond words and I trust You, thank you for trusting me with him...


Four months after that. you are. here. in my arms...

God, I am so amazed! I thank you for hearing my cries and holding me in your arms as I helped bring him into the world.....my heart just grew ten times bigger....I think I know how you must feel about all of your children now.

My cup runneth over.....


I couldn't have known that all those many, many months ago what God had in mind when I prayed that first prayer.....I'm just so happy that it was YOU.
Welcome to our family and to the world Liam....you are loved more than you will ever know

love
~Momma

  1. He is simply perfect and beautiful. Every single word is think post is amazing. I hope you print it out and put it in Liams baby book. He is truly a miracle and is so very blessed to have a momma like you and a family like yours! I am praying that you weeks to come are wonderful and your heart only grows larger each moment you and your family get to know this little guy more. Ohhh Liam---I cannot wait to see more of you---you are so sweet I wish I could just give you a hug!
