Blessings

This has been year of transitions for my husband and I. We are going to have a grandchild next year!!!! As much of a blessing that this is ,it brings up emotions of the past. We are young parents with two boys(age 9 and just turned 14) still at home and two grown up kids. I had my two kids very young and my daughter will be the same age as I was when I had her(when she gives birth).It brings back some emotions in me that I haven't felt for years. To say the least,


my family was not happy with my choice to have my baby before I was married .I was fortunate to have friends that accepted me and my kids as a package deal.I was blessed that I met my husband and he raised my two kids(who are 19 months apart) since they were young as his own. Our family grew with the birth of our boys and we have been ONE family ever since.We never used the term "blended family" or "stepdad".Those words were not in our vocabulary ,we are one family.
We are excited for our next chapter to begin.I am determined to make my daughter feel special at this time in her life.My husband and I are going to be young grandparents and starting that journey younger than we thought but happy never -the- less.So this holiday season we celebrate a new life to come and many generations of blessings !!!!!!

What a fortunate child to be born into a loving family. I always think that Christmastime is such a special and meaningful time to be expecting -- you feel such a connection to Mary and her experiences.

All good wishes to the new to be Mama, and the grandparents! Merry Christmas,
Cass
