I always thought I’d be a mommy to two girls.
When I envisioned our future family, I saw my daughter, Mae, walking with her hand clasped tightly to another little girl’s.
It’s a precious image I’ve had in my head for a long time, but one I was afraid to verbalize.
In 2014, after a struggle to become pregnant, we found out we were expecting, and I was sure this was it.
My two girls.
Sadly, we miscarried that sweet little one, and I pushed that image far back into the corner of my brain…and my heart.
I felt like that dream was over, and it was one I grieved for a long time.
And then…surprise of surprises…we found out this past November that we were expecting again.
And I allowed that dream to take its place in the depths of my heart again.
I was sure.
My pregnancy with this one was nearly identical to my pregnancy with Maelie, other than the fact that I was even sicker. But everyone knows…sick = girl.
Oh, I wanted her to be a girl so badly.
We’d picked out her name. Hope Kristine.
And though there were nagging thoughts of, I think this might be a boy, I tried to stay positive.
God knew the desires of my heart, and I was sure He’d give them to me.
Today I’m over at God-sized Dreams, sharing a piece of how God is doing some rewriting in my life. Will you join me here?
