Bringing Ada into this world was one of the best days of my life. It was a day filled with all kinds of emotions. I was nervous, scared, excited and overall elated. This was the day Randy and I have been praying about and dreaming about for some time and I couldn’t be happier on how it turned out.
It was a beautiful morning and I was lucky to get a room with a gorgeous view. I loved that I got to look at this while I labored.
I labored for about 14 hours and had to push for 2 hours and 15 minutes. Those two hours were the longest two hours ever and it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. But it was worth every minute. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my loving husband and my mother. They encouraged me nonstop all day long. And when Ada came – I have never felt so relieved in all my life.
Meeting our daughter for the first time was the most happiest moment of my life. I instantly fell in love with her – completely and whole-heartedly. As soon as they laid her on my chest, she had the most perfect pout. After seeing that pout my first thought was, “Oh no… she has already mastered the pout. We are in trouble.”
The first thing Randy said to me, ” She looks like an Ada.” And that was when I started crying. It was a wonderful moment for me. Laying there with Randy by my side, staring at our little Ada – soaking up the first moments as a family of three.
I will never ever forget those first precious moments of her life and I am so grateful for the Lord blessing us with this wonderful gift.
