Today I saw the tiniest little heartbeat.
Today we looked at each other and stared in amazement at our future family member. Most people contribute a sperm and an egg initially and invest their energy later into the pregnancy to bond with their child. But we started long ago and put so much of ourselves into the process of creating this little fetus. In addition there have been countless others that have put part of themselves in too.
And from today on - my heart will never be the same. As much as there was love between us that grew for each other in the absence of success, our hearts now swell with love for this microscopic little being. And its not just us - its everyone who put in a little love for what they do who made this possible.
I can't wait for that little heart to grow and to fuel the life of a baby . . . our baby. And I hope that baby grows to be a person with a big generous heart. Goodness knows it is starting off with a ton of love from a lot of people - that should be more than enough to get it started and keep it going.
