Once lost now happily found in search of sleep

Here I am Celebrating Fat Tuesday at the pediatric sleep institute with Dori while Chris holds down the fort at home with the other boys. This time it's to measure Dori's tolerance for a cpap. He hates it and seems uncomfortable but we gotta give this a try to help him breathe at night.
To pass the time I was researching quotes about family on my iPhone and I found one that I first stumbled upon before Chris and I ever had children. And even though I hadn't experienced maternal love first hand, the first time I saw this quote it teared me up. I was so inspired to find it again I needed to share.
"Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour I would give my life for you. This is the miracle of life." - Maureen Hawkins

  1. This quote is so beautiful. Now that I am waist deep into motherhood, I too understand each portion of this quote. Thanks for finding and posting. You are an outstanding example of a true and loving mother.
