After All This Time

on January 17, 2015

I’ve been wanting to write for awhile but I just can’t seem to find the words. Johnathan Bruce was born on December 27 at 2pm and was 9 lbs 2 oz and 22 in long (which is huge considering my relatively small frame). It was a very difficult birth but I was able to have him at home and he is thriving.

After all this time, after all the losses, I can’t believe that my son is here and I get to keep him. I can’t believe that I am a mommy to healthy little boy. Every time I let it soak in, I just cry because I feel so lucky and I feel that I have been given a gift that is so precious that I could never deserve it.

He is beautiful and perfect. And I am crazy in love.
