Its so hard for me to believe that just a short two years ago Thomas and I were making the 6 hour drive across our state to await, meet, and bring home our daughter. This day was filled with so much anticipation. We waited until the school day was over to start the drive, and let me tell you that was one of the longest days of school I have ever experienced!! On the drive I was hit with one of my more severe migraines (it had actually been going on for 8 days straight) so much of the drive was a blur. Regardless, it was probably the best drive we have ever taken to that side of the state because we knew that for our drive back home - we would finally be parents!!
Our journey to parenthood was long, emotional and full of loss but in the end, we received the greatest gift our biggest joy, Ellie Faith. It was because of the generosity and selflessness of another that we became parents. Since becoming a Mama, I have been filled with so much joy, happiness, fullness, and love. Sure there have been some challenging times and moments whee I have wanted to rip my hair out but I choose to not focus on them or really share them here on the blog because in reality they make up such a small part of our life and they seem so insignificant, coupled with the fact that after 6 years of fighting Infertility the last thing I want to do is focus on the negative aspects, if you know what I mean.
So here is a little flashback of where we were just two years ago. Making the road trip that would literally change our lives forever - and for the better!
Happy almost 2nd Birthday my Sweet Girl!!
