was 10 years ago today! At just 18 years old I had to tell my family I was pregnant. I can still remember how ashamed I was. I cried and cried and couldn't even get the words out.
I remember praying the night before and asking God for forgiveness. I knew God still loved me even though I had failed and he would help me through this. I re-dedicated my life to the Lord that night and new everything was going to be ok. I now was more worried about what everyone was going to say? I just couldn't imagine telling my dad! I kept thinking of his parents and what they would say? What would everyone think of me?
I also was scared about becoming a mom.
I had never changed a diaper before ever! I remember hearing about an episiotomy for the first time and freaking out and knowing that this baby had to come out. I was scared.
I had a healthy pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. We got married 3 months later.
God is good!
Justin and I have been happily married for 9 years now and just had our 5th baby. We proved a lot of people wrong. We are so thankful to God for turning a bad situation into the best situation.
Every time I look at my son Austin it is a reminder of God's mercy. He is the most amazing boy and I thank God for him everyday! I thank God for my husband and the man and father he has become.
I thank God for the life and children he has blessed me with even though I don't deserve it.
Happy New Years everyone...... may God continue to bless you in the new year!!!
