It is Thursday, March 3rd of 2011 and I am sitting on my couch with my beautiful and 20 week pregnant wife. I don't ever want to forget this moment, what happened, because it is so precious. Em begins to feel the baby moving/tossing/turning and asks me to put my hand on her belly to see if I can feel anything. I am sitting in anticipation as I await any sort of movement that can be felt.......nothing. Em has been telling me about all that she is feeling and I am so excited for her but usually it is just her feeling and nothing on my end. As I sit on the couch patiently with my hand on Em's belly I all of a sudden feel it.......a good strong thump on my hand! All I can say is WOW. This is a miracle. THE GIFT OF LIFE. I will cherish this moment forever knowing that God is the one behind it. Thank you Father!
