(Part 1 of 3) Azelie came as the biggest shock of my life. I found out I was pregnant with her when Rocco was only 6 months old. I felt overwhelmed, terrified, and incapable. I cried on the bathroom floor, and wondered how I would do it all. I felt guilty for these emotions. I remember Gabe wiping my tears and reminding me that if God created this life, He would bring good from it. Well, as you may know, we call this blue eyed belle ‘Zel’. She is 110% vivacious and full of light. She is my living reminder that sometimes the greatest gifts we receive in our life are not written in our own plans.
She changed our lives for the better as each of my children have, and she made my heart more receptive for what was to come. (Share your own surprise baby story below! I’d love to read them.)
