Welcome to the World Lydia! {7.4.14}

Not many words can describe the awe-provoking experience and miracle of giving birth. It all seems so surreal, yet so familiar at the same time. I feel so grateful and humbled that Heavenly Father blessed us with one of His special spirits. Soon (I say soon because it did not come at first for me!) you come to feel like you’ve known this little infant and miracle forever, yet not enough time in the world would ever allow you to catch up on the time you missed out on them. I’ve come to realize that life really doesn’t start until you find your family (whether that be having your own children or “adopting” another family if you aren’t able to have children in this life).

“I know of nothing so earth-shatteringly powerful and yet so universally and unstingingly given to us as the God-given power…to create a human body, that wonders of all wonders, a genetically and spiritually unique being neer seen before in the history of the world and never to be duplicated again in all the ages of eternity–a child, your child–with eyes and ears and fingers and toes and a future of unspeakable grandeur.” -Jeffrey R. Holland

I will never forget the sacred, tender feelings we shared as a family in Room 4204. Lydia, you truly are a miracle and we love you so much!
