Tomorrow is five months. The last two weeks of them have been almost as rough as the first two. Seriously.
It was taking everything I had to get up and go to work. Let alone be a good friend, sister, daughter, wife or mother. I just wanted Aidan back. I wanted to be a mom that is easily recognizable because my child is in my arms. I just want others to know him and be in awe of his milestones.
Today, I found out that even though Aidan isn't in my arms, he is still reaching milestones. Totally different ones than the other babies around me, but still.
I received this while at work today. I was able to share our story further.
I found what life has been beating out of me lately. Aidan's purpose.
I needed a sign this big. This public. This picture.
Answered prayers are not on our time. They are on God's. Thankfully, he is putting this one out for the world to see.
