Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
My wife and I tried for nearly four years to have a child. As time went by and friends posted photos of their baby bellies and newborns, it was torture for my wife as she felt her time for having a child was slowly passing her by. Her first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage and the torture continued. Then, nearly three and a half years ago, she conceived again. Considered high-risk, we spent the entire pregnancy in continuous doctors visits, ultrasounds, and hospital stays. We now have a healthy and beautiful little girl, and she is thankfully on loan to us from our Creator. Life is precious, she embodies that fact daily and we are thankful God rewarded us with her!
