My Miracle is ONE!

This boy.
The child I never thought I would get.
The child the doctors TOLD me not to expect.

He turns ONE today.
And now, a year after that amazing day he came into our lives, I can't remember what life was like without him.

He is a miracle from God and a blessing in so many ways.

Seems like just yesterday I was posting that picture on my Facebook page, letting all of our friends and family in on our HUGE surprise.  I remember still feeling numb with excitement and disbelief at that point.  
Less than a year before that, fertility doctors had determined that we most likely would never conceive a child naturally.  (Even though we already had one, which they couldn't explain.)
The overwhelming JOY I felt after finding out I was pregnant was indescribable.  
That joy quickly turned to fear after a few complications early on.  

But . . . our Miracle Max was meant to be.  
And he is one of the two best gift we've ever been given!
Lucy, meeting her baby brother for the first time!
The most perfect picture ever.
Max is the sweetest little guy there is, and the love and joy he has brought to our family in one short year is amazing.
He has completed our family PERFECTLY.  There's just no other way to say it!

The gratitude that I feel just looking at him is overwhelming.
I know every mother loves their children . . . but I think there is an extra-strong bond when you've had to fight for your children.
Although infertility was one of the worst things I ever had to deal with . . . it ended up being a blessing, in the end.
I love and treasure my babies so intensely, it's hard to put into words.
I fought for them.  I prayed for them.  I begged and pleaded for them.

And praise the Lord, I got them.
Miracles DO happen, ladies and gentleman.  

Today, my heart is overflowing with thankfulness for this little man.

Happy Birthday, Max!
I love you to infinity and beyond!
