the length of pregnancy is such a quick blink in our life (but don’t tell that to a soon-to-be-mom in her longest trimester).  truly tho, it is an amazing blessing in our life for those of us lucky enough to experience it; the way our body is capable and {usually} equipped in doing so.  i have known many couples who have struggled with having a child, years & even decades of trying.  it’s heart breaking to see a couple try unsuccessfully despite being the most ideal parents. i can’t imagine the hurt they feel with unanswered prayers.  but every so often a prayer does get answered.  sometimes amazing people step in and love & care for a child that they may not have birthed, sometimes it’s temporary thru foster, sometimes more permanent with adoption, sometimes they are just a significant person in someone’s life without the role of parenting but of role model or mentor, & sometimes its a nurse who nurtures a child back to health.  every so often that prayer is truly answered with a wished for conception.  this is a reminder to be thankful for our blessings however they come and never give up the hope of what HE has in planned for us.

i’m thrilled of this success story… and i’m still praying for a few other’s i know who deserve this blessing as well.

one of my favorite quotes “Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.”  ~Rabindranath Tagore
