IF and When

This morning I am thankful and scared. My sister got a positive pregnancy test. This is her first treatment cycle in a long, long time. And I am so excited and so *terrified* because last time she was pregnant, she did not get a take-home baby. I have always felt more strongly about my sister having children than me. I got her text this morning and burst into happy tears. And then I prayed "God please please please PLEASE let this one stick!". I honestly think I could deal with living childless, if it came to that, if my sister had the brood she always wanted. Prayers and positive thoughts are welcome and appreciated, as always.

  1. I sincerely hope that your sister has a very happy and healthy pregnancy. We have a fiend who struggled through many late term miscarriages before her son was born. I know how literally heartbreaking it can be. Keeping you and her in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. This post just told me everything I'll ever need to know about you. You are such an amazing sister and you'll be there to hold her hand through the entire thing- no matter what happens. She is lucky to have you. And you her.

    1. Awww, thank you! My sister has been mothering since she was 3 and my brother was born - it is her innate talent. And I make a fabulous aunt if I do say so myself ;-)
