My 24th Year

Today I am 25. As I look ahead, I also look behind, at what an incredible year I just had! I am just not sure if any other year of my life can compete with the experiences I had in my 24th year! I felt completely and entirely blessed and fulfilled!

On April 16th I became a mother for the first time to my beautiful Malachi! Of course, I had no idea that I was a mother until 2 1/2 weeks later when I got the most wonderful and anticipated call!!! I didn't think life could get any better.

Then towards the end of June we were shocked to discover that my total lack of energy meant that we were going to be blessed again with another baby!!!

I have experienced so much this year! I conquered my fear of flying around the world (while being completely nauseated I might add at 10 weeks pregnant!) I visited my son's birth country. I had my dreams fulfilled as I walked into the orphanage and held my son in my arms for the very first time!

I had another dream fulfilled as I got to experienced my other little miracle kick and squirm from within my tummy. Yet another dream fulfilled as we welcomed him into this world and I became a mother for the second time on February 4th!

Yesterday as I went to see my doctor, she asked me "so how hard is it?" I told her it really hasn't been bad at all having two so close together. At first she thought I was lying, but soon was impressed with how relaxed and happy I seemed. I truly am happy. I have seen my dreams come true! My family is everything I ever wanted and more! We waited a long time for these boys so how could I not feel anything but very blessed today!

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
Psalms 127:3-4
