My husband and I used to spend hours talking about the kind of parents we wanted to be. The dreams we had for our longed for children. These didn’t involve money or power just love and happiness.
When I was pregnant I didn’t care about the gender just that they were healthy. When my daughter was placed in my arms I looked into my husband’s face and watched the tears as they rolled unashamed from him. His look told me all I needed to know, daddy’s girl.
No matter what the future would bring, this child would always know she was loved, she was special. She would be protected at any cost.
God was generous to our family and blessed us with three more amazing daughters. So I guess I can say I have a full membership into the mod squad.
So many times people would ask the question “did you try for a boy”. I can say hand on heart no, we tried for a child and God blessed us with four amazing girls.
Their personalities are so different, shy, carefree, stubborn, fun-loving, quiet. Each one so different, yet so alike!
I love being a mom to my girls. I will admit getting scary as they are growing up. Keeping them safe as they wish to spread their wings. Praying for their hearts. This is where I find comfort from the MOD squad as I can share my worries with people who really understand.
Our dreams for our girls have changed; our third daughter was born with a devastating condition, Rett Syndrome which took her from us in 2008. From our daughter we learned so much about life. What really mattered, quality time, kisses and cuddles Losing her broke the hearts of our daughters along of course with ours. As parents we had to spend time holding them close, showing them they had to learn to laugh again to enjoy life. Time does help but faith kept us strong, knowing without a doubt, that we will be reunited again.
I am so proud of my girls, the courage they have shown in their life has amazed me. They hold me when I struggle and I promise to always hold them. I pray daily for their futures but with hearts like theirs and their inner strength I’m sure they will do well. I wish them true love and happiness. As for my husband and I, we have been blessed with four incredible daughters for this we thank God.
