(prepare for gushiness!) :)
Every time I look at this our precious Quincey Rose I have to say a prayer in my heart for blessing our lives with another angel. Only 3 weeks ago she was in heaven and now she is in my arms. I look at her and I believe!! Believe in God. Believe in our plan on earth. Believe in my divine role of motherhood. Believe I was meant to be her mama. I know more than ever that families are forever. Wow-she's quite a powerful little babe! :)
Prior to my delivery as I was laying there listening to my baby's heartbeat, worrying like mothers do-if she will have all her fingers and toes and if everything is going to go smoothly when my mother-in-law painted such a pretty picture for me, reminding me that Quincey was in heaven right now saying her goodbyes and giving my daddy a hug goodbye. Tears filled my eyes and replaced my worries with peace & comfort. Thank goodness for epidurals so I could experience such a sweet, pain-free moment!
And everything did go smoothly almost too perfect! But our pregnancy didn't start out that way. At our first ultrasound the technician found soft signs for our baby possibly having Trisomy 18. But after more tests, prayers, and the passing of time these signs faded and Quincey is as healthy as she can be. Not to mention quite the little eater! A friend of my husband recently lost their baby to what we thought Quincey had. We realize more than ever how blessed we are to have a healthy baby. We realize more than ever how grateful we are that we are able to have children! I realize more than ever just how precious life is.
Thanks for listening to my thoughts and sharing these special moments with me.
