Last week, on April 24th, it marked nine years since that day of the ultrasound.
That was the hardest day of my life, yet it was the beginning of the richest and most joyous experience I have ever had. Life isn't meant to be easy. Mine isn't; ours isn't. But through trials and hardships we gain strength and happiness and wisdom that cannot be acquired any other way.
My life changed that day, and I am so, so glad it did.
