Hello there! I want to get a little content on this new website and see how it is working.
I’m reposting this from my old blog. It is one of my favorite stories. You can see the original post here.
When you’re young you feel like nothing can go wrong. I married Dino when I was 24 after 6 years of dating. I imagined us having a house full of kids…I remember telling him I wanted at least 4!
We started trying to have a baby about a year after we were married. Nothing happened. Then I changed jobs and got better health insurance. Nothing happened. It seemed everyone in the world was having babies. I prayed and cried a lot. Nothing happened. We went to see doctors and started taking fertility drugs. Nothing happened (except they made me sick). I stopped taking the drugs and gave up. Nothing happened. Finally I put all my problems and worries to God. Something happened. I found peace.
Then on February 14, 2000 the doctor told me I was having a baby. I was shocked and so surprised!
After 6 years of waiting for her, I learned that sometimes He does answer your prayers, just not always on your schedule.
As for the big family, we are just perfect the three of us …I think He knew I couldn’t handle all the math homework! Amen.
Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.
