For This Child I Prayed…

Two things are important about these pictures:

1. Adelaide is sitting in her Christmas present from Lance and I.  I found this chair at Ross and thought it was so cute! It has all the colors of her room, and will be perfect for her monthly pictures. I can also picture a cute reading nook when she’s a little older. Good thing Adelaide doesn’t know when Christmas is, and giving it to her early won’t spoil her 🙂

2. Her pajamas are very significant. I bought these pajamas when we were struggling with infertility. I have a condition called PCOS and it makes it very hard to conceive.  We tried for almost 3 years before seeing a specialist and then were fortunate to get pregnant with the help of fertility medicine.  There were days where I cried myself to sleep thinking I would never get to be a mom (the only job I’ve ever wanted).

Then there were days where I had tremendous faith that God was going to give me a little girl one day.  The day I bought these pajamas was one of those days. Every once in a while, I used to pull those pajamas out of my sock drawer and hold them, trying to imagine them being filled with warm, chubby, baby-ness.  Now, I get to actually feel that.  I get to kiss my daughter and hold her.  Every day I thank God for giving me the one my heart desired most.  I do not take her for granted. Now our desire is to raise her to love the One who gave her to us.

For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27
