“My greatest dream has been realized. I’m going to be a mum. There’s nothing that has happened in my life that compares to this. I’m beyond happy. I love children so much and literally obsessed with babies and to think in a few months, I’ll look down at a baby and he will be mine. My own son.
No accomplishment, no title, no milestone, no achievement, no money or worldly possession compares to this. This is my greatest blessing. My gift from heaven.
Dear God, thank you so much for this gift! Thank you!
I wrote a piece on my blog about finding out I was pregnant early this year and all the emotions I’ve felt since then. You can go read it if you want.
Thank you so much for all your well wishes. I appreciate your love and kindness.
May God visit everyone for whatever their hearts desires are. May all your prayers be answered. God bless”.
