For This Child I Prayed

What now seems like "long ago," was really just 2 years ago. We had been trying to get pregnant for six months with no progress. I was praying every day that God would bless us with a baby, and bought a baby shirt to hold as I prayed for a child. Something tangible to help me focus on what I was asking for.

2 years later and we have a 9 month old who finally fit into that shirt. As I looked back on my journal entries from those long months of waiting, it is so surreal to hold this precious bundle in my arms...

"I long to be a mother and hold my child in my arms."

"I desire to start our family, a family together."


"My whisper of a prayer to God is that He will bless us with a baby in His timing, instead of ours."

I love this!
I remember those exact feelings so distinctly! We passed our 2 year mark of when we started trying just 3 days before our baby was born-it was so surreal and special!

This is so sweet. I was thinking about buying something tangible like that too, but wasn't sure if it would make things harder. But I think I will. It will be so awesome someday to actually see it on a child :-)

I LOVE the dachshund top...I told my husband that I want to do the same thing to remind me of why we are getting our health in order to try and have a baby next year. Where did you find the top at? I would love to get one. The Lord is so good!

I love this! I follow your blog regularly because I have some friends in the same city as you (A, B, and little L). My husband and I are going to be working for the same company as y'all come July. We will also be training in Vancouver, and I have SO many questions about it. Any way I could email you, or you could email me first? My email is amorgan0607@gmail.com and my blog is jaredandashleymorgan.blogspot.com . Thanks and I love your blog!!
