30 Days of Thanksgiving for Infertility: Day 27-29

My 30 days of Thankfulness for Infertility is almost over.  I think my most favorite parts have been witnessing how much growth I've had--spiritually and emotionally--after infertility.  I've never really thought about what a blessing infertility could have been in my life, but now I know.  I know it was necessary, and I am thankful for it.

Day 27:
I am thankful that I never gave up trying.  We continued trying and we continued praying.  I could have let the doctor who told us pregnancy was unlikely as an excuse to never try again.  I could have let the failed pregnancy be an excuse to never try again.  But, ultimately, My desire to be a mother was greater than the risk of seeing another negative pregnancy test or losing another baby...or worse yet, never trying again. 

Day 28 and 29:
Because we continued trying, I am so thankful for these two little miracles:

Kohen (18 months) & Kade (3 years old)
I hated the wait, but I know God was putting extra special touches on my boys--and literally, the first time I heard them cry, the pain and the heartache seemed to be nothing more than a memory for me.
I know God's timing is perfect.   God could have chosen to answer my prayer sooner (or not at all), and I would not have these boys to love.  I honestly can't imagine my life without them. 

Check back here tomorrow to conclude my 30 Days of Thankfulness for Infertility!
