the DUE date

well, today was the day; the day he was due...
for the past 4 months, i have dreaded this day...
I have wondered how i would feel today....
....and today, i can happily say, i am celebrating God's gifts...
I have my baby boy home with me, I am able to hold him, play with him, bath him, sleep close to him...by the grace of God, I get to do all the things I longed to do...
I am not struggling anymore with the "what ifs"...I am now rejoicing each day and am so THANKFUL for every second.
Even with all we've been through, I feel like the "luckiest" person on earth; so grateful for God's healing of Coy...
this journey has taught me so much; I am not sure why we've been "chosen" for this path, but I trust in God's plan, a plan so great I cannot understand...
my baby boy is absolutely perfect, a perfect child of God...
Thank you Jesus

You have been an inspiration to people all over the world. The way that you and Chris handled this challenge, your faith in God and in each other was such a lesson and example for many, many people. There is an overwhelming sense of love that jumps off each page that I read. I am so thankful for the lesson...my faith has grown and I am sure many can say the same. That's why God picked you....job well done!! I praise the Lord daily for what He's done. We will continue to pray for your family as we rejoice in the Lord's victory!!!

Congratulations on getting this far. There are many people out there who could not have done what you and Chris have done, and you truly are blessed. This is the first of many milestones, and may you cherish each and every one. Coy is lucky to have such wonderful parents. He is looking GREAT!
