There's a song I've been listening to recently and it starts with the lyrics, "If faith can move the mountains, let the mountains move. We've come with expectations, waiting here for you..."
Waiting. There are few things tougher than waiting. Having expectations and then things don't go how you plan, so you wait. And with faith, they waited. That's REALLY hard. Trusting, waiting and then waiting some more.
Lauren is one of my best friends and I never heard her or her husband complain once about their struggle. I heard a little discouragement in their voice at times, but that was very rare. I saw support when other friends and myself welcomed babies into our arms. I saw love as they celebrated with us. All the while waiting for their own.
And that incredible faith turned into a reward and that reward just happens to be this precious baby girl named Audrey Faith. Celebrating? Oh you bet! This little girl is so loved. You can just see it in their faces. You can tell they're beaming, even though they are tired.
Welcome to the world, miss Audrey. I can't wait to watch you grow. And congratulations, Lauren and Steve. This little girl is SO incredibly lucky to have you two as her parents. <3
