My husband and I hadn’t made a conscious decision to start trying to have a baby. However, after an amazing, life-changing trip to Africa, we decided we would leave our chances up to God. Two months later, we became pregnant.
WHOA, that was fast! I had heard stories that becoming pregnant can sometimes take awhile, so I was definitely caught off-guard. But what a beautiful surprise.
It took a while before the fact that I was pregnant settled in. Once it did, I kept reciting to myself, ‘I’m going to be a mom. I’m going to be a mom.’ I will never forget the feeling that swept over me. I found myself pacing my room with excitement and experienced a sense of joy I have never felt before.
