Going In For Surgery Today

Remember when we discussed expectations?

Well, today I am acting on an answer to fervent prayer.

I believe in personal revelation.

Today I have peace in knowing that my 13 year trial with infertility is over. I have 3 beautiful children. They were prayed for and many tears shed in anticipation of their little lives.

Those 3 children are the only children that my body will produce.

Today I am going in for the surgery my Doctor and I discussed. If all goes well and it is successful, I will get to keep my uterus, which is good because that would open a whole new can of worms. So we will pray this works!

If in the future we feel inspired to adopt, we will. For now it is just us 4 with our little Dawson waiting patiently on the other side of the veil.

The sweetest words came from my Jake. He said (during a very intensely painful week),

"You are in a lot of pain, aren't you Mom?!" 

"Yes Jake, I am." I replied.

"Well, I think it is worth it for you to go and get the thing done that the doctor wants to do, so you don't have to be in this much pain. If we feel like we should adopt a baby, then we will, but if we don't then our family is perfect with just us." 

Words of wisdom that spoke peace to my heart! This boy is wise beyond his 10 years!

Recovery is supposed to be quick. I am hoping it is! Today I am amazed at the miracles that my 3 children are! I am humbled by the gift that they are to my hubby and I. I have nothing to be disappointed about! I am so SO very grateful to be a mother!

THanking you for posting this; it is something I needed to be reminded off. For many reasons.

Love you Amy. You are truly an amazing sister and role model for me! I can't wait to see you again and I really would like to talk to you on the phone (rather than keeping in touch over blog comments).

XOXOXO
