and the fun begins...

Well after waiting nearly 10 months, tomorrow is the big day. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 in the morning to begin my induction because Luke and my body have come to a decision not to go into labor on their own. I'm so overwhelmed and full of so many emotions that I just can't quite put it all together. I've wanted to be a mom since I was a child playing with my dolls and tomorrow that happens. How unreal is that?

I hope that I can be the kind, supportive, loving, and firm parent that I always that I would want to be. I hope that I can guide him through the rough spots in life and celebrate the joys with him. I hope that I can share a deep love of God with him and teach him to appreciate every blessing that life has to offer. I hope I can help him to make the best possible choices that he can in his life and I hope he knows that no matter what he does, my love for him will never waiver or change.

Wish me luck!

I can't wait to meet Luke. You made me cry. You are going to be the most amazing mom. I can't wait to watch you and Keith grow as parents. I love you both so much and will be praying for you SO big. Love you!

Thinking and praying for you all today! We are eagerly awaiting the good news. I hope that everything went as smoothly as possible and that you are now (or will soon be) holding your precious baby boy.
