Hey Maria it has been si long since I've been on here or. So you may not even remember me. I had a miscarriage at about 12 wks and had a DNC for my birthday. I am so excited for you!!!!!!! first time in so long I've been on here and 1st thing I see is "O daughter is here" i seriously burst into tears i was so happy. Pregnancy hormones are going strong even though im 18 wks today. She is absolutly beautiful!

Hi Maria, congrats to you & Steve! She's beautiful! I found your blog through my husband Rob, who went to school with Steve. I was looking over his shoulder one day at his Facebook page and saw the beautiful picture of you & Steve at the pumpkin patch with your adorable belly. I asked who was in the pic and he told me how he and Steve were good friends in elementary school and well, I'm nosy, so I clicked over to your page, saw the link to your blog and have followed ever since. I went back and read some of your old posts and saw how very hard you two worked to finally have your precious daughter and I'm just so happy for you both! I hope you enjoy her, and manage to get a bit of sleep!

I happened upon your blog a long time ago. It must have been just before you found out you were pregnant. At the time I remember being inspired by your honesty and openness with your journey. I'm not sure what happened but I didn't find my way back here until just the other day and I was SO thrilled to see that you were almost ready to deliver and now you're baby girl is here. Congratulations!!! You've been through so much. Welcome to the world little Piper :)
