Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

I'm Going to Be a Mom!

I've never kept a journal but as I embark on this journey I wanted to make sure that I will be able to remember every particular detail about it - not only for me, but for my child. I am not sharing this experience with a significant other and, therefore, will not be able to reminisce about this experience with him - so I wanted to document my experiences, emotions, and milestones during this process.

I'm usually pretty exclusive in sharing private details and emotions, but there is so much about this experience that I need to share with my friends and family. So much has already passed, left uncaptured, but I will officially begin the story now. Here goes...


  1. Melissa

    I am so happy for you. I can not wait to hear every detail. I am honored to be apart of your journey. There is nothing better in life then being a mom. I know you are going to be a wonderful mother.

  2. Melissa,

    You have many "significant" others you are sharing this experience with. We all love you and are thrilled for you. I am looking forward to becoming closer in the years to come. Thank you for sharing this journey. I can not wait to welcome your daughter!
