I am 38 years old and the mother of four girls. Life was busy, full, and overwhelming. When I found out on January 1, 2013 I was pregnant, I was shocked and scared. We are financially secure, and I am a stay-at-home mom. My life is comfortable, and my husband and I are good.
This surprise, however, has been the best thing in our lives. After nine long months, I gave birth to Lucia Remy on September 16, 2013. She is so beautiful, sweet, and good.
The moral of this story is to trust in God’s will and plans. We had no further plans for our sweetheart, but God did. He knew that our family was not complete, and I am glad for that. I am glad God is in control of plans and not me. If we would have been in control, we would never have met little Lucia. Her smile is so contagious, it has made this long, cold winter warmer and bearable. I hope everyone gets to experience an unexpected blessing. They are truly a kiss from God.
