Chapter 4: What did I do BC, before I was a Mom?

This morning I watched my 15 month old daughter cutely toddle her way back to the bedroom to search for her daddy. She was so excited, so adorable, and I was in awe just watching her.  I began to wonder, what did I do before I had this lovely little child  toddling around in my every day life? Was I bored? I don't think so. Was I complete? I didn't know then that I was not.  I know that BC (before child), I actually got to watch television, at least 4 recorded shows each week. Now, I'm lucky to catch...

Chapter 3: Motherhood is a hard wonderful

I'll admit that I was a bit naive about how motherhood would be. I always heard that it was both wonderful and hard, and I believed it, but it's something that you don't truly understand until you're in it.

Chapter 1: My Blessing

I'll start with the good part, the end of this chapter. I have a baby and she is a beautiful, perfectly healthy baby girl in every way. It was not easy, however, to get to this point. There were times when my husband and I wondered if a biological child would happen for us. We had losses. We had tears. We had anger.  But then we had hope, most importantly faith, and now we have our rainbow baby. We started trying to conceive about 2 1/2 years before I got pregnant with my daughter, Norah Belle.    I was diagnosed...
