Never Winter's 5th birthday celebration ~ 23 June 2010
Yes I'm taking a short break from my Romantic weekend Parisian series, but it's for the best of reasons. Today is my youngest's 5th birthday. I've done a lot in my life, been to a lot of places, had some truly noteworthy achievements. But the best thing I've ever done, the highest accolade that I've ever garnered, my greatest legacy happened four times in my life - the days I gave birth to my children...
Tragically, Peter and I lost our third child. A precious little boy we named Deme. The loss was not only tragic, denying us the child we so wanted and loved, I nearly died in the process. The doctors warned me against having another child too soon; it would be very dangerous to myself and that child. But I (we) was so devastated with the loss of Deme. My child was gone but my body, heart, and soul were ready to give and nurture life - my milk came in an I was in full 'nesting' mode. I wanted - needed - to be a mother again.
Creating Never was instinctual, spiritual, filled with love and oh so passionate! There was great risk, but the reward was even greater!
The moment that I knew I was carrying a new life within my body
- I felt at supreme peace. So, we began our journey.
Nursing Never ~ 23 June 2005
Never has been a joy, from the moment he was conceived until this very moment. He's my miracle baby, my little man. And I'm SO glad that Peter and I did not listen to the doctors.
Happy Birthday baby...
Vivre, rire, aimer!
