Right now Maddy is resting comfortably in her bassinet. Mommy is giving me chores. I have to run to the store, of course.
I'll probably post one more journal entry with pictures, but after that I think this part of the journey is finished.
This is kind of weird, for the past 18 months or so I've been posting about a possible baby, and now we have Madelyn. I've gone from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows and back up again. It's been a stressful, tear-filled journey. At the end here I have 1 son, Zach, and 1 daughter Madelyn. I wish I could have both, but I couldn't have had one with out the other.
Thanks to everyone who supported Amy and me on this journey. I made some new friends I may never have had if it was for
elmegil, thank you for your support and emails during the lows. They gave me the push to keep going. It's amazing to me how compassionate people are towards others that they never met. You're are a good man.
"This isn't the end, only the beginning of a new chapter", somebody probably said this before, but for me it's true. I'm not going anywhere, I'll probably post journals on occasion writing about the trials and tribulations of raising a daughter. But this is finished.
Thanks to everyone again. Sean and Amy, (though she probably doesn't realize it)
