Our Miracle: Noah

A miracle occured in our lives in 2011: Noah.

He changed my world entirely, from the moment we learned I was pregnant.

I surrendered, let go and realized this was beyond my control. I had to lift it up to God, and TRUST Him, my body, and sweet baby growing inside. Whoa.



Harder said than done, but eventually I got there. And EVERYTHING CHANGED.
 
I reached out to dear friends for their positive pregnancy stories, which was an enormous help to me. Thank you Shelby, Susie, Kori, Allison, Lynn and dear Jennie. Your advice, kindness, support, encouragement and prayers were more powerful than you may know.

And to you dear readers sharing your positive advice, comfort, product suggestions...your had a tremendous effect on me. THANK YOU. I invite you to inspire and encourage others as well, you are powerful!


It was the most amazing, powerful experience; Beautiful, spectacular, and the moment Noah was put on my chest was the most unbelievable miraculous joy, pure elation.

It was calm, peaceful, nothing like I had imagined-especially coming from someone as dramatic as myself.



A mircale happened. Fears were overcome. I learned to experience life with a whole new perspective--a MUCH, much greater one.


Cannot wait to celebrate the life of this new love in my life!


Wishing you a joyous 2012 with much to celebrate in your lives!

Much love,
Kate

Congratulations!! Your little miracle is so beautiful!! It's hard to believe but with each moment, each day, each year it only gets better and better. Absorb it all as best you can because it truly is so fleeting and you only get the chance to enjoy each breath, each smile, each laugh, each tantrum, each discovery... once. Huge hugs of joy to you and your beautiful family!
