As a women who struggled for five years with infertility, a baby shower was something I always longed for. A day to celebrate this gift of life growing within my getting-bigger-all-the-time belly had come to be this elusive day that I honestly wasn't sure would ever happen. Well.... the time finally DID come. After five years and many tears, Aaron and my beautiful, precious and oh so special baby girl is only weeks from arriving and today I had my first baby shower! It was a very special day with family and friends who have longed and prayed for this baby along side us for years. There was lots of laughter, games, presents, fellowship and yes... some tears as joy flooded my heart. I am so thankful for the many gifts God has given me, but today I am especially thankful for the gift of friends made family. As Natalie grows, I hope that she will come to realize just how much she is loved by so many wonderful people. That love was completely evident today... that's for sure!
Thank you to everyone for your generous gifts, but most of all just for being there to be a part of the celebration of our miracle baby girl. I can't wait to do this all again next week with my Selma family and friends!
