a wish

Today I received a surprise package in the mail from Alisha. Inside was a beautiful card that said, " make a wish". She wrote inside that she had her mom make us this baby blanket in unisex because we don't know what awaits us. Alisha wanted us to have something tangible to know that our long awaited wish will soon be answered! So with tears running down my face, I quickly dialed to thank her. This package today reminds me how far I have come. Two years ago, I packed up all the baby items we had received and haven't been able to look at them again. Today, I am able to hang this blanket over the chair in the office (nursery) and look at it with hope. I absolutely love it, Alisha! Wish I could give you a hug in person! Thank you so much!

I am so glad you love it! I always think having something tangible helps you to hold on to hope! And I cannot wait to see it in use - boy or girl!
