Happy Day!

I'm writing this blog smiling because I'm so happy - for someone else! I hope this can give some inspiration/hope to those out there who are trying for a baby (including myself!). A sweet, sweet friend who teaches with me in 4th grade has just found out she's pregnant. This, after 3+ years of trying, one round of unsuccessful invitro, ooodles and ooodles of hormone shots, drugs, medicine, time, money, time off work, etc. A few weeks ago, they decided to not do invitro again was just too much. And then? You got it. 3 straight positive pregnancy tests. God had the plan....they just didn't know it!

Her face was beaming when she came in with the sonogram picture, already framed with the phrase, "You were loved before you were even born" (Since I'm not a crier, that only thing that does show emotion on my body are my arm hairs....they were standing on end when she told me!)

This precious woman...she's been through a lot and is truly one of the most gifted teachers out there. Selfless...sweet....hardworking.....she deserves every ounce of her happiness!

Happy day!

I'm a lifelong friend of Jamie Garner's and she sent me here tonight. Thanks for sharing this - it is SO encouraging. We just decided to take a 3 month break from fertility treatments before we have to do in vitro and I'm hoping for my own little miracle also! This gives me hope!
