You are wanted.
Its 2am. As I sit here trying to work on my gift to me niece/sister for her baby shower I find myself welling up with tears. Most of you don’t know about my sisters battle with trying to have a baby… My sister and her husband have been through more than many married couples could bare. They lived the nightmare… countless ER trips, loss of babies, my sister almost loosing her life (twice), going through the in vitro fertilization process, and countless other trials and tribulations all to try and create a new life. I am overcome with emotion.
I have always admired my sister. But never as much as today in this exact moment. Her strength astonishes me… I have never witnessed such love for something that hadn’t even been created yet. Now, years later she is finally getting what she deserves… Her own gift from God; a baby girl. My niece will probably never know all of the great lengths my sister took, but what she will know and will never question is… she was wanted.
I am thankful. Thankful for my sister, my brother in law, my precious baby niece but most of all I am thankful for this miracle God has given to my family.
