mama's day

Mama's Day - 2011

I waited a long time to be a Mama. Looking back over our journey to become a family, I'm glad the Lord made us wait as long as we did. If we hadn't looked to the Lord and waited, we wouldn't have our little Lilah.

And I believe all that waiting has made me appreciate every single tiny little detail of being a mama.

Every single day is my day, another day with my beautiful girl. I couldn't be happier.

On a day like today, I could never forget the mother that carried my daughter for nine months and gave birth to her. And God, who entrusted her to us, to love and cherish.
