So today is my 27th birthday, and what a year it's been up to this point. Turning 26 was hard for me, because all I really wanted was to be a mom, and that didn't seem to be in the cards for me at the time. I remember feeling sad and angry at the situation we were facing. This time last year, I was preparing to have surgery on my cervix and being told we would have to wait at least 3 months to start trying again. I was starting to lose hope.
However, looking back, I just have to thank the Lord for being ever so faithful, as always. 5 months after my 26th birthday, we found out we were being blessed with a miracle. What an amazing feeling. The rest of the year until now has been filled with growing spiritually, emotionally and most of all PHYSICALLY!!
I was talking to a friend about how birthdays aren't that exciting after you get to a certain age, however, after pondering that thought, I realized how exciting this birthday and this year will be. On my 27th birthday, I am 31 weeks, 1 day pregnant with a miracle baby named Amelia. I have a husband who I love more than words can describe. I have family and friends that remind me how blessed I am on a daily basis and I have a God who died so that I may be saved. This birthday is incredibly exciting!
I can't wait to see what being 27 holds for me, but I know whatever it is, it will be amazing!
