After Every Storm Comes a Rainbow

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

I ran across the following quote this week and it definitely hit home. I often think about "what if" I could go back and change this or change that or make different decisions? Would my first born still be here? Would we have suffered such a loss? In the end, our path led us to our daughter. She is my precious gift from God, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

“I hold my daughter in my arms and thank God for bringing her to me. If the standard route for creating a family had worked for me, I wouldn't have met this child. I needed to know her. I needed to be her mother. I know now why all those events happened. Or didn't happen. So I could meet this little girl. She is, in every way, my daughter. I am carrying my Funny Gift from God and all is good.”
― Nia Vardalos, Instant Mom
P.S. Go read Instant Mom by Nia Vardalos. You won't be disappointed.
