On This Day

     On this day four years ago we found out about Lorelei.  My tummy hurt.  I bought a pregnancy test but did not want to take it because I had been dissappointed before.  So many times.  I prayed right before the test, "Lord, be with me.  This hurts my heart."  And then I took the test.  It was positive IMMEDIATELY.  The first breath I took was a sobbing one.  We had been married for five years.  Only took birth control for the first two months of our marriage.  A surgery, three months of Clomid (which we stopped 8  months before conception), tears and prayers.  And then this.  To a womb that was said wouldn't carry life without (human) intervention. 

I always imagined I would tell Chris in some fancy or cute way.  No. I called Chris and blurted out, "We're pregnant!"  He coined the term "craugh"  Pronounced craff.  Which is a combo cry/laugh.  And everyone that would have gotten a ticket that day was also happy for us. 

To God be the glory!
