Anna Madison

Eight years ago tomorrow, my first baby was born after 11 long years of infertility, sadness and uncertainty. Eight years ago tomorrow my heart and soul was reborn from darkness into light.

After 22 hours of labor, after 36 sleepless hours and almost losing her, complete and utter happiness came into my life. I post this every year to remind me of how blessed we truly are.

You are indeed a lucky woman that you were able to have your baby. I can empathize with you since I may never be able to have children and if I was as lucky as you I would remind myself often.

Thanks Holly!

Marfa... HUGS coming your way... You are so right. We are very lucky, and I don't forget it for a single moment. I tell my kids every day how wanted and loved they are.
