From a very young age I knew that I wanted to be a mother, I love babies and could not wait for my own.
Then at 20 I fell pregnant. I was pertified but at the same time I knew that it was saving my life. Teaching me to grow up and that there was more to life. Dylan was born two months before I turned 21 and then a mere 11 months later I was pregnant again… with twins! My life was changed forever. Although I always counted it as a blessing, three little treasures that keep me alive, make me wake up every day and face the world.
Last year I joined a fertility forum (they had a few twin mom’s on there) and that was when I realised just how truly blessed I am to have three bundles of joy. I always knew that there were women who battled to have children but until I formed friendships with girls who first hand went through it, and some who still are, I guess I never thought much of it.
That is when the words ‘Trying to Concieve’ became close to my heart.
I take my life for granted (not always, but I do). I take my kids for granted and the fact that I fell pregnant so easily and had two hassle free pregnancies. I take their health for granted. All until I became a part of the fertility forum and formed friendships with women who never gave up on the dream to be a parent, to the one’s who battled for years and finally realised their dreams, to the one’s who are still trying and to the one’s that (despite all their years of wanting) have “given up” on that dream… “given up” is not the right term I am looking for though, and I cannot think of how to word it, perhaps accepting that somethings are not meant to be? That still puts a dagger in my heart… I am sure that you know what I mean though.
I pray for each and everyone of you gorgeous ladies. For long life. For adoption’s. For the miracle of conception. For your dreams to be realised.
To those I have met…
Adéle, Michéle, Benita, Irene, Eileen
And to those I have not met… yet
Erdna, Melanie, Meezie, Nikki, Marthie, Megs, Tarryn, Vanessa, Chantalle, Jahni.
Marts would like a girl and Meezie twins. Let us all stand together and pray for each and every single lady. Known and Unknown. Each of you ladies has touched my life and made me realise what I have to be gratreful for in terms of my boys and I thank you for that.
