As I sit here holding my third child, I am amazed that we've been so blessed. It's been a long and heartbreaking road, but well worth it. I never knew how strong love for a child could be until Merisa was born. There is a deep bond that cannot be expressed in words...truly an act of God. A few years after Merisa was born, we were hoping and praying for a second child...a sibling and playmate for our daughter. And Merisa so badly wanted a baby brother (she will not admit to that now, of course!). She even made postcards asking for a little brother (surprisingly, she didn't want a sister), and her only desire for Christmas was for Santa to bring her a baby brother. It was so touching! After many years of one loss after another, we welcomed our second child, Mr. Logan, into the world in 2009. Then, to everyone's surprise, little Levi was born 23 months later. Children are such a miracle and a huge blessing to this world. There may be days where I'm completely exhausted...I'm pretty sure I'm running on auto-pilot seeing how sleep is just a figment of my imagination...but I would never change anything! I couldn't imagine my life without these beautiful children. They are such a blessing...crazy and wild at times, but still a blessing! =)
So I encourage you to hop over to Kayla Aimee's blog and read her letter to Scarlette, a 25-week micro-preemie. A true testimony to the miracle of life!
