Welcome To Our Garden

There are no words...

There are no words to describe the love I have for this new little human being. The emotions I have felt over the past 2.5 weeks are indescribable.

I've been excited. Scared to death. Embarrassed. Happy. Sad. Nervous. You name it and I've felt it. But I guess I could best sum it all by saying I am now COMPLETE.

I've waited my entire life...35 years...for this sweet little girl and she's here. Here in our house. In our living room. In our arms . In our lives. In our hearts.....right where she is supposed to be.

I wish I could write like you other new mothers and describe everything that M and have gone thru but my mind is mush and all that comes out is that all the hell we've been thru to get to this point has been worth it.

Maybe one of these days I'll get my emotions in check and be able to put it all down into words but until then if there's something you want to know, just ask and I'll do my best to recap it for ya.

And like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So here's a few thousands words for yall.

She is beautiful and the two moms are absolutely GLOWING! After befriending and following you for the past few years I have hoped and prayed right along with you that this day would come. I am so thrilled for you, and your beautiful daughter.

Well worth the wait...that's for sure.

She's amazing and beautiful and so absolutely perfect!

I think she looks more like M than you, Kim! It's really funny how that works because I was told that Graem looked more like me and Margot had her!

Best wishes to your lovely family and thanks for the update and pictures.

ABsolutely gorgeous. I was talking today with a friend who also reads your blog and we were both so very happy.

I understand fully what you mean about waiting all your life!

By the way, I have a little gift for Gracen. I just have to get my act together to get to the post office!!

Congratulations! The three of you make a beautiful family! I have stood by and watched you struggle for more than two years and I cannot tell you how happy I am to see your little one. She is beautiful and precious and I hope you enjoy the journey with her.

Thank you for the pictures. Keep them coming and all of us will continue to ooh and ahh over little Gracen.

Thank you for sharing your story with us!
