A Letter to my Promise
My Premium Promise,
I never imagined that I’d be part of such an elite group of women. But thanks to you, Isaac, I am! I am a preemie mom. I am a warrior mom. I am raising one of God’s most precious miracles. At 26 weeks, I gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy! A tiny 1lb 13oz. Wow! It’s been 14 months since the day my life changed forever, since the day I heard your tiny whimper over all the voices in the operating room, since the day I found strength that I never knew I had. I chose the name Isaac because of the story of Abraham and Sarah. You were my promised son. You were my ISAAC! After experiencing the loss of two children, I didn’t think that I’d ever get to be a mom. God had other plans, plans far greater than I ever could’ve imagined. God gave me YOU! God wanted me to know from day 1, you were a warrior! Your middle name, Alexander, means “defender of man”. That’s no coincidence! You came into this world making a statement and I pray that you always live that way! You are a FIGHTER! You were chosen by God to do the IMPOSSIBLE! I mean after all, He chose you to be born with something that only affects 1 in 12,000 babies! Can you say SPECIAL?! You have shown mommy what it means to be brave. Because of you, I will never give up on anything. Because of you, I will continue to share a story of God’s faithfulness and unmerited favor. Because of you, I get to look a miracle in the eyes every single day and remember that God cannot fail. No matter what life throws your way, you will not know defeat. You will only know a lesson learned. You will change lives my sweet boy! And guess what?! Mommy and Daddy will be cheering you on the entire time!
