Remember the game where you and a buddy would hold your breath and wait to see who could hold it the longest? As the minutes passed there would finally be a huge GASP and the participants would take in the much needed air! That has been me for the past 10 weeks! For the past 10 weeks I have been holding my breath, carrying a secret that has rocked my world!! I can finally let it out! WE WILL BE GRANDPARENTS IN APRIL! The joy of this news is indescribable. First I cry, then I rejoice, and then I cry.
Legacy. The family DNA of the Koops and the Salciccioli family is being passed on to a new generation, into this new precious life. My heart is stirred deeply at the thought of this.
Watching Dave and Azlan walk into this new blessing; seeing them tearily recognizing God’s sweet favor for them and acknowledging the love of family that surrounds them, has been sincerely heartwarming.
I am 54….I got here pretty fast…my baby will be a daddy for the first time and that churns up so many emotions. Yet as I watch Dave and Azlan I am moved by their maturity, their love for their unborn child, and the care they have taken as they approach this new season. They will be amazing parents.
I know, when they look into the eyes of the child they have created together, they will be smitten at such a deep level; love more deeply than they have ever loved before. I cried learning they were pregnant, and I am sure I will cry when I hold our precious “beloved child” for the first time!
Call me Grandma or granny, I do not care………….just CALL ME to babysit, snuggle, care for, and support this precious little life…….My arms and heart are abundantly ready!
Overwhelmed by God’s favor! Excited about the season ahead!
