There comes a time in life when the waiting has to end.
Waiting ends with the accomplishment or fulfillment of whatever we were waiting for. Or it ends with nothing. Every single one of us knows what waiting feels like. We wait for our periods to end. We wait for a smiley face on our ovulation kits. We wait two weeks until our periods arrive, or we get that elusive positive test. We wait for our beta results. We wait for the first ultrasound. We wait to make decisions and choices that will shape the future in our quest for motherhood. We wait to find out if we are homestudy approved. We wait for an agency to match us with our future children. We wait. And wait. And wait.
Some of us have waited months. Some years.
I have written before that it doesn't matter how long we wait - we are all equally deserving of success in this journey. But today, the waiting ended for a very incredible, very special, VERY deserving person.
Please head over to Lisa's blog and wish her congratulations on the birth of her son, Jayden. Lisa has waited a long time to bring Jayden into her home. Lisa is an amazing person and friend. She's been there for me, personally, through a lot this past year. There are some people you meet during this journey who touch your life in a way that you never thought possible. I've gained some amazing friends this way, and Lisa is one of them. She's battled infertility and cancer, and come out on top. She's an inspiration to all of us.
She is living proof that nothing can stop you from achieving the dream of becoming a mother.
