Mom to 5 little angels in Texas and expecting another blessing in Summer 2012!!:
thanks everyone. It is really truly a miracle that he turned out so well and healthy. I don't know what I would have done if it hadn't worked out. It is really a blessing that it worked out this well.
I am very grateful.
Now that I actually KNOW him, I would have done everything differently! I never would have taken the stupid chances I did. I was so naive and idealistic about the whole thing. Somehow until I heard his first cry it was still all just such a concept to me that there was an actual baby in there. I have shed many tears over my mistakes and like I said, am completely changed form it.
Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for me and my boy- I bet they helped us! For my next baby- they said to wait 18 months past c section to get pregnant, I am going to try for a v bac but do it in the wonderful hospital where he was born. Lots of lessons learned and again I am so grateful for how it worked out. The c section recovery is rough right now but so worth it. I am so in love with him and so happy!
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
