Two years ago, I had recently ended a long-term on and off relationship, found out I had to have another brain surgery, was told the surgery might not work, that I might be paralyzed, might have to freeze my eggs, might have to have chemo (which might not work for the type of tumor that I had). Was basically told I had a growing malignant tumor and there might not be a way to stop it.
Along with a slew of other things I eventually wanted, getting married & having a family seemed like an impossible reality. I thought, who would want to marry someone who basically had a death sentence? Well, not only was the surgery successful, but I also fell in love with and married the most amazing man I have ever known.
A few days ago I had our son, Alvin. He is so beautiful and so perfect, a dream that at one point seemed so far away. There are a lot of things that have made my life full, but being with Al and now seeing our newborn son are constant reminders of God’s faithfulness in my life. Everything that I thought I would lose was given to me one million times greater than I ever imagined. I am so thankful and so blessed to be able to spend forever with the greatest love of my life as husband and wife, best friends and parents. And I am so grateful that we have been blessed with this amazing and beautiful baby boy. *Sigh* In love. 😍
