I begin my daughter' s story with my own personal journey as I embarked upon having children. Right from the beginning, I had a tough ordeal with both of my pregnancies, that led to two of the most precious blessings of my life.
At 4:00 am, August 12, 2003 my husband and I got into our car to make the hour-long trip to the hospital where I was scheduled to have a C-section. I couldn’t wait to see and hold my baby boy for the first time! We had picked out the name Jaden, which means “Jehovah has heard.” Looking back, the name I chose was quite ironic but I never had a clue at the time.
One Sunday morning, in 2003, I woke up to surprise vaginal bleeding. Normally, this would have signaled the start of my menstrual cycle; however, I was 13 weeks pregnant. Needless to say–fear and panic set in.
