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!

|The most perfect picture ever.|
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.
Happy Birthday, Max!
I love you to infinity and beyond!
