I met a miracle on Saturday. She was 10 days old and has strawberry blonde hair. She slept in my arms for over an hour, and didn't like her feet to be uncovered.
This little girl has been hoped for and prayed for by many for a very long time. Her heartbeat was the first her parents saw after several miscarriages and rounds of IVF. The announcement of her arrival on Facebook received more comments that I have ever seen before. All babies are special, but she is SPECIAL.
The whole time I sat holding her and watched her mom with her, I was so hopeful. Her first picture shows eight cells, and now she's a feisty little baby. With so much that has to happen perfectly, it's a miracle babies are ever born. But it happens. This little girl is here. She is proof that all can be well after devastation.
This little one I am carrying is a miracle, too. I fully plan to hold my little one in my arms in about seven months and marvel at what a miracle she/he is.
I love my little one so very much.
