We started our birthing class this week, and at the beginning, we had to introduce ourselves- our name, our partner’s name, our baby’s name, and due date. Aside from the basic info, the women went in a circle sharing their story. For most, this is their first birth, for others, it is their second, and for one, it is a blessing. At 47, she is able to carry her first child. Listening to all their experiences and their journey nearly put me in tears.
So my journey goes like this.
My husband and I got married July 31, 2016. We went on vacation for three weeks, and somewhere in between the Caribbean and driving the Pacific coast, Benjamin was conceived.
I still remember that Saturday morning I took the pregnancy test.
The room was dark as I crawled back into bed and told my husband I was pregnant. We were both so happy!
Those small moments serve as a great reminder of what a privilege it is to walk this life.
