Oh my GOSH, CONGRATULATIONS! I have been following your story all along and have been praying and hoping that your little one got here safely! Congratulations, he is so adorable and beautiful. What a miracle! Enjoy, you deserve it! Take it easy after your c-section too, I know how hard the recovery can be :)

Omg!!! He is gorgeous! A beautiful mix of both mom and dad but yeah I am seeing lots of dad!!! A little fox haired prince! We lost our sons just a few months apart of eachother,so this brought a wave of emotions and tears for me. I showed my husband who usually doesn't want to know or see and he teared up as well. Thank you for sharing your pictures,your stories and your pregnancy journey with us. I am so very happy for you! You are an inspiration!!! Enjoy him! xo
