Never Say Never

So many times in the process of getting to Keira I have thought to myself "I can't do this...I have to let go...it's too hard".  And so many times the words have come to me over and over and over..."don't let me go".

For my friends still waiting...never say never...

Be sure to listen WITH the music and a special moment I wanted to share with each of you is near the end...

Don't let go -xo

I have only commented on a few of your posts but have followed your blog for a few years. I just have to tell you that I am weeping for you as I watched the video of you seeing sweet Keira's picture for the first time! Can't wait til you bring her home!

Kristy said...

Oh gosh Christie this has just taken my breath away, Im sitting here 4 hours after dental surgery with a big old honkin gauze in my mouth over sutures crying like a flippin baby....!!! Your husband is incredible, he made my day when he said, "There's my girl", dangit Im sobbing again....that is just the most beautiful video to have one day for Keira to look at. The God we serve is an awesome one and he reveals himself every single day to me and he worked overtime today!!!

Love and blessings, Kristy

p.s. I wished we lived closer, we would be great friends...all of us, you and I could talk for hours I bet!!!

p.s.s. what picture program do you have , I love it!

Kristy said...

Now I feel stupid. I also meant to say that Quint also will love this in the future and he will see just how wanted, needed and loved he was from the very start. I fell in love with that child from the first time I laid eyes on him, well to be honest everyone in this family, everyone... sister, kids, husbands, neices, friends everyone and to look back on all of those pictures was just amazing.

Thank you for sharing.

God bless all of you.

That was AWESOME!!!!

Auntie Lisa said...

You sure know how to make a sister cry! Or at least an auntie who's anxious to meet her new niece! Plowed through half a box of Kleenex watching your video. Love all 4 of you so much!

Girl, I am telling you, YOU NEED TO BE A WRITER!!!!! Of course I realize your life is about to get more hectic and crazy than it already is. But once it calms down and you get into a new routine with 2 kiddos, YOU NEED TO BE A WRITER!!!
