No matter what there is always LOVE

So I have a new friend in the blogging world and she is truly inspiring to me, sharing her hoarding issues with the world as she tries to overcome and de-hoard her life. She found and shared this story today, and I took the time to read it. I hope you will too. I was sobbing by the end of the story and feel SO incredibly blessed that both my boys are healthy and all is well. It also brought back the feelings I had while Matthew was in the NICU. There was a baby girl in there that had down syndrome and the parents had no idea until she was born. I remember feeling sorry for them that their daughters condition was a permanent one, and I found comfort in knowing that Matthew would eventually be just fine. I know that it takes very special people to raise a child with disabilities, and I really do feel that God himself hand picks these parents to take care of these special, beautiful souls. I, of course begin to wonder if I have what it takes to take care of and love a child with disabilities, and then I realized that no matter what happens I will love this child just as much as my boys, even if it is another boy ;) I'm not going to lie, both Andy and I want the chance to have a girl, but again I have to remember the thoughts of "Thy will, not MY will be done"!

I know, there is always that worry.
I look back on my time being pregnant and while I did not drink or smoke or anything like that, I am so disappointed that I did not take better care of myself..for my baby. Why didn't I take my vitamins, eat more veggies and just do better. I want to kick myself, the fact that I put my children in any danger.

I am so proud of you for putting your baby first and doing what needs to be done!!
Love you!

If it helps at all, we don't feel sorry for ourselves. Our girls have inspired us, taught us, loved us, blessed us. You can't ask for more than that! :O)
