The Beginning

Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Welcome to my blog! I am so glad that you decided to stop by. Starting this blog has been something I have wanted to do for some time now. During the past 2 years of trying to conceive I have been searching for a blog that I could relate to. I wanted to find someone going through a similar situation as me, but to no avail. So, I decided to make one for all the women searching!

Here's a little background information for you. My name is Sabrina. I'm 26 years old and I'm married to Brian (he's 27). We have been married since August 2004 (almost 5 years now!). I used to teach 2nd grade, but when we started to get more serious about trying to conceive, we decided that it would be best for me to "retire". To keep my sanity and to bring in a little extra money, I work part time as a nanny. (I know...it's cruel that I am working with other people's kids and not my own!) All my life I have wanted to be a wife and mother. As a little girl, I remember my teacher asking me, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was, "A mommy!" My calling has always been clear, but the path to getting there has not.

Our journey began in August 2007. We had just celebrated our 3rd anniversary and purchased our first home. Everything seemed to be lining up perfectly for us to start our family. We decided it was time! I stopped taking my birth control pills and we expected that we would be pregnant within a few months. We had no reason not to think that. Everyone in my family has been able to get pregnant without any trouble, so why wouldn't I?

This blog is going to be a way for me to tell our story. My hope is that my experiences will be able to offer you hope, encouragement, and answers to some of your questions. But most of all, my prayer is that through reading my blog you will be pointed toward the One who has all the answers...my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, this journey would be impossible!

I know what you mean... my calling is to have babies & be a good mama & raise them up in the Lord. We're gonna get there, girl. All we need is faith as a mustard seed!

I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time conceiving... It sometimes feels like the people who deserve it the most and are really ready have to wait the longest to finally be blessed with a baby.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that you will get pregnant soon!

Oh and I found your blog on WTE.
