Can I let you guys in on a little secret? I’ll give you the quick version. The secret is....I never wanted kids! That’s crazy, I know! When my husband mentioned having a baby, I pretty much told him he was crazy and I didn’t want to have children. He left it at that.
A little while after, the Lord changed my heart and I finally went to him (after fighting it) and I told him I was fine with having a baby. No actual trying though, just leave it to the Lord. Well, not too long after that, we found out I was pregnant!
I had out first born daughter, Ariyah, 2 months early and she had a hole in her small intestine. She had to undergo two surgeries, spent almost 3 months in the NICU, but she was such a champ, had a quick recovery after the second surgery and came home just as healthy as ever!
I was okay with just one child and didn’t want another. Well, long story short, the Lord changed my heart on the situation AGAIN and there I was...pregnant with our second daughter! This time around I was a little scared because of what happened the first time, but stayed focused on the Lord and trusted Him. I carried FULL TERM and our second daughter, Mya got to come home with us right away. It was the best feeling ever, y’all!
Don’t be too quick to shut something down. Pray about it. You never know what will come from it. I shut my husband down on having kids and now, after having these two sweet girls, I wouldn’t go back for anything! They have made me a better person in so many ways. I am blessed to be a mother, their mother. Thank you Jesus.
