We’re having a baby today!!!! Just got the news that they’re going to induce me this afternoon; I failed the preeclampsia test badly. Would appreciate prayers for Gavin’s safety and well-being. We’re soooo close at this point! Will update as I can.

That was my Facebook update a year ago today. A year!!! It feels like the blink of an eye. Last year at this time I was hooked up to multiple monitors, IV’s, and other medical equipment and hoping that my heart would hold steady and that Gavin could hold on just a little longer.

Tonight? I’m putting the finishing touches on decorations for his party tomorrow. And  gearing up to run my 1st 5k race tomorrow morning.

I will run to celebrate the birth of my amazing little boy.

I will run to remember Gavin’s twin whom I hold in my heart although I was never able to hold him in my arms.

I will run to put the past away: the pregnancy complications, the miscarriage, the scary hospital stays, the painfulness, the postpartum depression. Things that I have overcome through God’s help.

I will run to show that I’m stubborn: it doesn’t matter if I’m not the fastest or the strongest. I will finish. When it comes to determination, you can’t beat me.

I will run because I can.

  1. You are such a strong person. I wouldn’t have been able to make it through my pregnancy without your help and words of wisdom! I’m so happy you get to celebrate one year with your little one…hope you have an awesome day!
