"When I think of becoming a mother to another little girl several emotions come to mind… excited, scared, and blessed are just a few.  

Excited because I am giving Charlie a best friend.  I cannot wait to see those two playing together and the bond they will form.  I always wanted a sister and I’m so excited to be able to give Charlie one.  My heart is overjoyed when she talks about all the things she’s going to show her sister or teach her.  She cannot wait either and that makes me so happy. 

Scared because I think, oh my goodness what am I going to do with two!  Scared because now I know all the things that can happen and how birthing a baby is truly a miracle.  With my first I was naïve but sometimes ignorance is bliss. 

And Blessed because God chose us to be her parents.  We struggled to get pregnant this time around and had no idea that secondary infertility was a thing.  We had come to terms with the idea that maybe God just wanted us to have one.  It was an emotional rollercoaster especially after envisioning raising a house full of kids.  It truly happened in His time and we couldn’t feel more blessed.  Every movement, kick, or hiccup is just as wonderful as the first time I felt her.  I’m not taking anything for granted and am cherishing every moment of this little girl.  I cannot wait to see her and hold her, but first we do need a name."
