I remember the day that I texted Brandon and said: “l want a baby.” He texted me back with an emoji face with a “really?!?” I have always been a little scared to cross that bridge, but I remember putting my hands on my belly and asking God for favor, grace and a healthy baby. As I cried that day, I had a sense of peace come over me. I was excited that I went to God with my request and by faith one day it would be filled.
As I held a positive test me my hands, it felt like time stopped. IM PREGNANT.. me WOW! I remember just smiling and thanking God for the blessings he gives us. My instant reaction was to pick the phone up and call Brandon, but I stopped and asked myself “what creative way can I tell him?” Our anniversary was just a few weeks away, so I took full advantage. I called our photographer to set a time and place for the next few days. Little did I know I would have to hold this news in for five days because he was out of town. Five days felt like a century.
The day is here I get to finally tell my beautiful husband he is going to be a DAD!! We arrive at the location with two boards. I told him to write a word that describes our marriage these past five years. We stood back to back without knowing what each wrote on our boards. My heart pounding out of my chest. Our amazing friend and photographer Jamal says “ ok now turn” here we go!! Brandon looks at me with such confusion, and then it hits him my board says “We’re having a baby,” and my tears began flowing out. The moment we have prayed for is here!! God heard our prayers and blessed us with a baby! We hugged each other and Brandon looks at me in disbelief. Is this for real and begins to cry. By far one of the most amazing feelings!
With all these incredible changes in my life, I took some time away to reflect and plan. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you throughout our journey.
Thank you for your prayers. God Bless.
