A Perfect World


In a perfect world, 
I would have given birth to a beautiful, healthy, baby boy on Saturday. The picture above that was taken when I was 21 weeks (and was the last belly shot I took) would have been what I think I would have referenced as my "glory days" of my pregnancy as I'm guessing I would gotten as big as a house.

In this perfect world, 
I would be on the brink of complaining about nursing, sleepless nights, and at the same time be completely and totally obsessed with my new babe.

Except, the world isn't perfect. But the plan is.

you are inspiring Chana! I don't know if I could have had such a postive outlook on things if it were me. I like to think I would, but in reality I don't think it would happen. We love ya chana!! you'll have to come run away and visit us when we get settled in, so make sure your passport is current.

You are wonderful Chana. I truly don't think anyone could go through such a trial with the attitude you have. I obviously assume you have moments that are not as positive but honestly you are an example of so many things. Aren't we lucky to have the knowledge of the Gospel at times such as these.

Chana,
I am inspired and touched by your attitude. You and Fred will be great parents to your precious Freddie and countless others!
