Not long after I found out I was pregnant, a young, single girl at my office also found out that she was pregnant. She got pregnant from a drunken one night stand from a man that she had just met that night. I was asked by one of my co-workers if it made me sick to think about how easily she had gotten pregnant when it took me so long. At first I wanted to say "yes", but the truth is that I wouldn't change a thing about the path we traveled.
There was a reason for my journey. The past 2 1/2 years, my knees have become callused and bruised, but I know my Father more know than I did before. My eyes may have been swollen from tears, but I have seen the Lord at work. My heart may have hurt with yearning for a child, but today my heart overflows with joy at His blessings. I wouldn't trade any of these things for an "easy" fertility story. My eyes have seen the Lord work a MIRACLE and that alone was worth it.
This sweet baby girl was worth it!

It was a day when Brant and I dedicated our child to the Lord and dedicated ourselves to raising our daughter in a Godly way. Mother's Day was a day of celebrating all He has done!
