Story Part Two
When we learned of the cause of the loss of our son Justin, we were scared to death of having another child. We definitely wanted more kids but were unsure of trying again. We started to look at adoption for the first time. During our adoption research we were shocked to discover that we were expecting again. Now we obviously knew how that happened, but we also thought we had things under control. However we were excited. We felt like this was Heavenly Father’s way of helping us move forward.
We were nervous this time. I remember praying that our baby would be ok and that we would get to keep this one. I always felt a sense of peace after such pleadings but still worried. (it’s my nature to worry) I am so thankful that my family and friends stood by me at this time because I’m sure I was a basket case! We actually had an ultrasound with this pregnancy to help ease our concerns, however we didn’t find out the gender. I liked the surprise to be at birth I guess.
Almost 13 months after the loss of our son Justin we welcomed another baby boy into our lives. Everything about J was perfect. I had imagined him to look just like his older brother but he was his own person from day one. We felt so blessed and were so happy.
