… is going to be a happy day! 🙂

That is what our OB (who is scheduled to deliver our new baby girl) told us this morning at our routine 38 weeks prenatal appointment. I was crying when he said it, as I was expressing my fear that somehow things won’t go well and we won’t get to bring our daughter home with us. I really appreciate his perspective and though I still find it hard to believe, I am going to do my best to make it my mantra for the next 12 days.

September 17th is going to be a happy day!
September 17th is going to be a happy day!
September 17th is going to be a happy day!

Thank you for your supportive and encouraging comments on my last post. Your kind words, thoughts and prayers, as always, mean so much to me.

So far, so good.

One day at a time.

We are almost there…

God and Molly have worked really hard to get you to the point you are right now and I trust them!…

I am sure it is extremelly hard for you to trust, but that is what we are here for, to trust and hope for YOU!

September 17th WILL be a happy day indeed and I really can´t wait 😉
