As I reflect on my journey many thoughts come to mind. In the past 12 month period, while my blessings have been great, I have been stretched to learn the depth of my strength from trials. We have gone through the trials of fertility with IVF, the elation of getting pregnant with twins, the heart ache of losing one of the twins to Vanishing Twin Syndrome, the wonderful news of a baby boy, the heart ache of learning of Spina Bifida and all of the unknown devastating possibilities, Scott's hospitalization, Hayden's birth and recovery from surgeries. I think of the saying that you have to know sorrow to know happiness. I must say that my recent happiness is that much sweeter because of the sorrow that we have gone through and not knowing the blessings that awaited us.
I have made it through those rough times even though I thought I couldn't bear any more as I connected with other people that offered love, support and some had been there and triumphed like the blogs that I follow (Etchell's, Beamovi, lil Gibblet, Nate). The wonderful thing about a blog is that I hope that our experience can offer encouragement to others that may face some of our same trials. All our love~
