I will end by saying that after so many tears and prayers, we finally got our baby girl. In 2013, I named a star after her in the International Star Registry--in hopes that she would exist somewhere, even if not with me. But now I have a star named after my daughter: Violet Star. I look forward to feeding her solid foods; being able to hoist her onto my hip; wandering around the woods, pontificating about life; teaching her about the trees and the sky; go camping and to the pool. As a wise friend told me: "You will spend the rest of your life doing things with her. Just enjoy this stage of her life." Maybe I can't etch every single second with her into my memory, but I can work to live mindfully and in the moment, with her in our world. I'm not sure if we will have more children, but for now and maybe always, our family is utterly complete. Thanks for letting me share.
Absolutely gorgeous…both you and your son what a proud mum you look! Your son is going to break some hearts he is so handsome even at this young age. good on you for showing what its really like in the real world with” normal” people.
