I had always dreamed of the day I would become one of these. It was my life’s desire. And yet when if happened - it was more joyous and more marvelous than I could have ever imagined. It was truly a gift from God.
I was 18 when it happened. People tried to tell me what it would be like, but I thought I knew it all. So when if finally happened, I was caught with my pants down so to speak. It was horrible and terrible and how could people willingly do this I wondered? I moaned, I cried, I even told my mom I changed my mind I didn’t want to do this anymore. But it was too late. I was stuck with only forward to go.
Finally someone took pity on me and gave me something to help get through the last little bit. And after that I felt marvelous!. And what else was wonderful was now I could concentrate on what was going on instead of being so caught up in the pain. I could totally enjoy the moment I first saw his head. Then the rest of his body. I had never seen anything so beautiful and nothing had ever touched my soul like looking at that newborn baby that had appeared out of my body. And he was mine!! The pain was forgotten and all that remained was the realization that my dream of becoming a mom was finally here.
He was a beautiful baby boy and very good. Not cranky or anything. He was cubby and fat and I enjoyed being his mom. Even the night time feedings were no chore because that little bundle of joy was my dream come true. I even started looking forward to the next one.
And the second didn’t take long in arriving. He was born 18 months after his brother. His name was Josh. Josh was born in Germany in a army hospital. We got to stay in the hospital for 4 days and recuperate.. I missed Kip but it was nice to have some one on one time with the new arrival.
Josh was different in looks than Kip, and had the most wild black hair. Later it became the most beautiful blonde hair. Him and his brother became pals and playmates and I discovered that the joy with two was very good indeed.
It took a few years longer to get the third, but finally when Kip was 9 and Josh almost 8, Dusty made his appearance in the world. He was born 9 days after the death of my father, he helped me so much in letting go of one life by embracing another. I sure God had it planned that way all along.
Now all three are grown, and for the first time in a very long time I didn’t have someone in the house to call me mommy. I missed them, all. For the 3 babies became great men - of which Kip was the first.
