A year ago this week was one of the hardest weeks that Erik and I have experienced. It was a year ago yesterday that we were told that Tryg had a 95% chance of having a major defect and that he may not even survive the pregnancy. A year ago today I could not even go to work. I was just heartbroken. Erik and I cried so hard all week long, and well into the next three months. We both just laid in bed and cried every night. There were so many questions, uncertainties and emotions throughout those following weeks. We were so upset to hear that the baby we had so longed for may not even make it full term or would have life altering defects. Of course, you all know how that portion of our story ended. Slowly, after months of prayers and further tests we would learn that he was going to be healthy! Then on June 21, 2010 our beautiful son was born....health, beautiful and wonderful. We are SO thankful!
I reminded Erik that I was just one year ago the other night. We both just held Tryg in our arms and cried tears of joy for our little boy.
