Love at first sight

A year ago today I took a pregnancy test and after two years of trying we were finally blessed with a BFP (big fat positive).  Two beautiful lines that changed our lives forever.  I will never forget the absolute joy that I felt that day and in the days and months following.  I had a special little secret.  I was going to be a Mom, what a feeling to know that I was nurturing a little person inside of  me, that I was solely responsible for the health and well being of our child.  We were blessed with a miracle and absolutely over the moon!  We had so many hopes and dreams for our little bean.  At this point last year I didn't know who my baby was yet.  I didn't know that her fate was to be an angel in Heaven.  I had no idea what was ahead of me but I was in love.  So in love and I still am.


Making the decision to have a child is momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

Such a beautiful quote and so very true. It is indeed life changing.

(((hugs))) It was about a year ago I first found out I was pregnant too. Neither of us could have known a year later we would be grieving our angels. Much love to you!

What a bittersweet day. It is so strange to look back and think of what was happening last year at this time and everything that has happened between then and now.

Sending you lots of love and remembering Harper with you always.
