One year ago today Chris and I woke up so early and drove about an hour away to our fertility clinic to try our third attempt at IVF. This picture was actually taken when we tried the first time months before. This time we didn't take any pictures, as the feelings of excitement were replaced with anxiety and fear, as this was our last shot for awhile. I remember leaving later that morning, standing in the elevator, looking at Chris while both our eyes filled with tears as we so badly wanted to be pregnant.
And that day God blessed us with our little miracle. It is amazing to me how much can change in a year and the different place that we are in now. A year ago when I saw the tiny little embryo magnified on a huge screen I had no idea that that was our sweet Addilyn that we'd be blessed with nine months later.
I finally got around to making a little video of Addilyn's first few days and felt that it was perfect to share it today.
God is faithful and good, and we are so blessed.
