Dreams Come True!

Three Posts ago, I explained a cherished
Dream of mine has come true. This Dream has not
only has filled me with happiness, also
everyone else in my life.

I'm proud to announce, that I'm Pregnant
with my first child!!!!I'm officially sixteen weeks.
My baby is due on Christmas Eve.
My boyfriend, Sean, and I are super excited
to say the least about our first baby.
Our respective families
and friends are truly happy for us.

I've been wanting to share this with all
of you. I had to get through my
first trimester successfully.

What makes this so much sweeter is because of
my age. Some of you may know, others not.
I'm 42. To be blessed with a baby now is
truly wonderful, miraculous,divine and lovely.

If there are any women over 40 who want to be
a mom reading this, Please know it is possible.
My baby was conceived the old fashioned way.(wink)

My boyfriend and I are getting married before
Baby comes. We just have to set the date.
I'll know in August whether I'm having a
girl or boy. When I do, I will share that
with all of you.

Whether its creating a baby, a novel,
paintings, music, etc all dreams
are able to come true!! Believe and do. You will
see, like I have. Dreams come true, my friends!
Have a wonderful Monday.
