. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Thankful

July 25, 2013

Thankful


I wanted to say a truly genuine thank you to those of you that have been reading my blog this last year and a half.  I know I've said it before but when I started this blog I had no idea that I would end up sharing our struggle to get pregnant.  Sharing my story and the blessings that have come from it has the best thing about blogging.  Thank you to the so many of you who have prayed for this baby and sent me many words of encouragement throughout our journey.  It blows me away that people I've never met before care about me and care about my desires to have a family.  I've felt showered in prayers and amazed at the excitement people have had for our baby girl.  So thank you for your prayers, encouragement, support and excitement.  It has truly made such a difference and I feel beyond lucky.  I hope Addilyn knows some day how many people prayed for and waited for her.

Katie, she is beautiful. And, very much loved as she is part of an even greater family. The reason why those whom you have never met prayed for you and she. She is a child of God.

It is truly amazing how the cyber-world can come together and support one another - even if we've never met face to face. I think it shows that no matter what struggles or hardships you may be facing you really aren't alone. Other's are facing the same challenges and can be there to lend support. Congratulations to you and your family, Katie. What a sweet angel.
