I wanted to start of by saying thank you to all who have sent me sweet little messages over the past few weeks asking me if I am ok. It's been close to two months since I last made an appearance here. It's not like me to just drop off the face of the earth with no explanation, but that was what I had to do in order to come to terms with the many, many changes that have, and will continue to come my way.
These changes are all in response to some difficult choices I have had to make. I've learned who has my back, and whose soul purpose is to look after themselves, causing even more pain.
I've decided today will be the day for my big reveal. I won't go into the nitty gritty details, as I am now in the process of moving forward. I will no longer dwell on what was, or what could have been. I believe that in the end I am going to be stronger and happier than ever.
It all begins with a tiny gift that I was given. A totally unexpected miracle. A baby, who is now growing in my belly. It's taken me awhile to accept that yes, I am having a baby, at the age of 42. The most difficult part is that the birth of this baby is going to change my life in so many ways, some maybe not so pleasant ways. The best part is that I'm going to have a baby!
At 19 weeks I've discovered that she is a girl, and she loves her little hands. After all the extra genetic testing that had to be done due to my "advanced maternal age", things are looking excellent. I already love this little gift, and can't wait to see her sweet little face. My little miracle is due to arrive February 3, 2014.
So I now invite you all to be by my side during this journey. Over the next few months I will have many ups and downs, and will need all the support/advice I can get. I'm excited to share all things baby, as well as to continue to bring back my blog parties and crafty adventures.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story...this is only the beginning :)
