I guess like most people I lived a pretty much self-absorbed life until I had my first child. Bringing a new life into the world changed that though. For the longest time my opinion was that it was unfair to bring a person into such a screwed up existance, but then one day it dawned on me... what if MY child is the one to make all the difference? If my baby can improve the life of even just one other person.. then doesn't that justify it's birth?
I'm now expecting my third child and my first daughter. I hope that she will grow with the knowledge of what a priceless gift she is, not just to her family but to the world in general. May she reach her potential and help make the world the place it should be.
[EDIT 7th December] Lily was born 6 weeks premature on the 5th December and is now in an incubator and probably will be for the next few weeks at least. It scares me to see something so very tiny, but she's strong and breathing on her own, she just needs time. Already she's making me proud of her.[EDIT 6th January] Lily came home on the 19th December, making her the most precious Christmas gift I've ever received :o) [EDIT 3RD March] Lily's doing superbly! I must have done something very right in my life to be so blessed. Each day I fall more in love with her, and even though I would lay down my life for any one of my children, this is the child that has made me complete :o)
