A Milestone For My "Baby"

Our sweet girl Delaney turned 13 today. Where did the time go? How did I become a parent to a teenager? It really feels kind of strange.

It seems it was just the blink of an eye ago when I was sitting in Urgent Care bawling my head off because I just found out I was pregnant with her. Our doctors told us it would be highly unlikely that we could ever conceive a child because we both have fertility issues. I had been on Clomid for sometime trying to get pregnant when Jeff's report came back that he also had some issues. We were told to give up and go home until we could schedule surgery for him. About a week later I ended up in Urgent Care because I thought I had one killer bladder infection...turns out the bladder infection was my sweet girl Delaney.

I could go on and on about Delaney and what an amazing person she is. She is compassionate and kind, goofy & lighthearted and loves the Lord. She is growing into an amazing young woman and I feel privileged to watch her grow and mature.

Happy Birthday Delaney!!!
