First and foremost, please forgive the delay in this post. This is LONG overdue!
As you know, I have been following your story (not to make you sound like a soap opera but that's the best way to put it) for awhile now. I've read about the disapointments, the moments of frustration, the sadness and the close calls. Throughout it all, the one thing you've always held on to, is hope. No matter what, no matter the wait, no matter how many times you were set back, you kept getting back in there and fighting the good fight. You updated your profile, you vented, you tweeted, you blogged and most importantly, you didn't lose faith that things would work out.
And work out they did.
Often in the game of trying to be a mother, feelings of jealousy can understandably arise. However, when I think of your journey, I don't feel resentment and envy, I feel inspired. Jayden's arrival and sharing your joy these last few weeks have offered such hope to those who continue to dream. Please know that we celebrate along with you and you will always be special in our hearts.
I wish you and your family nothing but the best. You are a thoughtful, kind and supportive person and I'm grateful to know that a special little boy has been assigned a special mom like you.
