A dear friend is having her precious baby boy today, in fact, she may have already had him.
Sam was a baby who has been prayed for and yearned for long before he even existed in his momma's womb.
I grew up and realized how very real infertility is. I think it's safe to say that Aaron and I took for granted the fact that both times we tried to get pregnant, we got pregnant very easily. For so many that is not the case.
And sometimes - God ordains other ways for momma's to have babies... and His hand is in those medical interventions that give us precious, wonderful children.
I have several friends who have precious children because they loved them enough to long for them, yearn for them, and endure for them.
As much as I cherish and find the birth of my children precious, I can only imagine what it's like to hold a baby you've yearned for and prayed for and worried for and endured for - for so very long.
Sarah gets to experience that today.
Happy Birthday, Sam! Your parents love you dearly.
