I DO! After 23 years, I’m a Mom for the 3rd time!
When I was growing up, I always imagined that I would have a lot of children. I really wanted to be a Mom, and favored baby dolls over Barbies as I felt the babies needed nurturing. Have you ever met a Barbie who needed a mother? I loved feeding and clothing and protecting and educating (can you imagine!?) and just loving. I was thrilled when I became a “real Mom” to two fantastic daughters, Amelia and Natasha, who are now all grown up and in their 20’s. I am very lucky that they live near me in Los Angeles and are a huge part of my life. When I started expecting, however, there was a lot of apprehension. (Turns out real children are a little more complicated than baby dolls 😉 ) A baby would mean big changes for all of us, and my girls were unsure and protective of me.
The day Silas arrived, Amelia and Natasha fell in love. He is not just my miracle, he is our whole families’ miracle! My favorite picture of all time I’m sharing with you is of the 3 of them the day Silas was born. It just makes my heart sing! They often stop by to visit their new little brother Silas. I’m so thankful to have such a loving family and I treasure each moment we share together.
Sometimes the most incredible things in life are the least expected.
I want to hear about a time when you were more than pleasantly surprised!
Also, what are the miracles in your life?
