I have a confession to make. I have a craving for a baby bad. I have ever since Lydia was about 3 months old I swear. Oh but it’s kind of hard for me to come by babies. It takes me awhile to get pregnant. I have to go on hormone pills and all sorts of fun stuff. But you know what? All the waiting and hormone pill taking makes me so incredibly grateful we have Lydia. We truly are blessed. Of course I get frustrated and sad, especially when I get on facebook and you see about five of your friends announce they are pregnant in one day.
I know I will get pregnant again. We are hoping soon of course! Lydia needs a sibling. And we need a baby! Heavenly Father knows all things and what is best for our family so we trust in Him. We pray and trust in Him every day. I just feel like the timing that our children come to earth is bigger than our wants. So we wait.
I don’t write these things so you all feel bad for us. I write them to let all the other families waiting for their children out there that they aren’t the only ones. Some things you go through in life just feel better that you aren’t the only one. When you know someone else has experienced or is experiencing your exact same heartache, it makes that sucky heartache a little more bearable.
“Waiting can be hard. We live in a world offering fast-food, instant messaging, and on-demand movies. Patience means accepting that which cannot be changed and facing it with courage, grace and faith. It means being “willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon [us], even as a child doth submit to his father” President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
