I had the wonderful opportunity to be present at our baby’s ultra sound a few days after Christmas. This ultrasound was such an amazing experience to participate in.
Before this ultrasound, I personally had gone through many ultrasounds when my doctors were trying to diagnose my PCOS and infertility problems.
Each and every ultrasound became harder and harder to go through hearing time and time again what was wrong with me.
My ovaries are covered in cysts.
My Fallopian tubes are clogged.
My body isn’t cycling properly.
One of my fallopian Tubes no longer is working.
Some cysts are gone, but there are still a lot there.
etc. etc. etc.
I started to dread going to ultra sounds because I usually came out crying knowing I had bottled up a lot of frustrations before each ultra sound and all emotions came loose during them (my poor doctors…)
So to have the opportunity to have apart of an ultrasound showing a beautiful miracle inside, a miracle that Hailame and I have as our own and to have the extraordinary woman, who is allowing us to have this child, invite me to be there to see this beautiful miracle was a tender mercy my soul has been longing for.
No words can express how my heart felt the first time see that sweet baby in the “ultra sound cam” (I don’t know the correct terminology.)
After months and years of continuous uncertainty and no’s from doctors, there was a baby girl growing and waiting to see us in a few short months.
This ultrasound was a strong confirmation that God answers our prayers in ways that we don’t expect.
He puts people in our lives that can help us, and we can help them.
Hailame and I are so thankful and humbled to be going through the adoption journey. We have learned so much and have discovered new meanings of love, family, and questions answered from God.
