Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be writing this blog post. Life has been insanely busy and ever changing. Major life events have happened to our household that has forever changed us. First and most exciting I got married to my sweet husband, Zackariah, at the end of last year. We had a beautiful wedding in my hometown with our friends and loved ones. There even a few kabuki families that made the trip out to the wedding. It was truly an event that will go down in the books. There was so much support and love poured out on Zack and I, our kabuki family was a major part of that. I can’t begin to thank you for all the kind words that everyone shared with us. We truly are so grateful for you all!
As I dream has come true of becoming a wife, another one is just beginning. Just four weeks after we were married we found out that we are expecting a baby. All sorts of emotion ran through my head the second I saw pregnant on that test. Were we actually ready for this? Was this really happening, all my dreams were coming true, I was really going to be a mom. Could I really handle being a mom? All the normal freak out questions that every mom goes through. But there was one question that rang in my head over and over again, What if I pass on Kabuki to this child?---Would I blame myself forever for this? Before Zackariah and I were married there were many, many talks about our future and the future of what could possibly be our family. We knew the odds of us having a Kabuki child would be 50/50. I remember sitting on a couch after we had just found out discussing the very probability of the child having Kabuki and being so scared, my sweet husband reassuring me with the same simple answer he has given me since we started having these discussions “Jordan, it doesn’t matter if the baby has kabuki or not. If it does I’m not worried, I see how you are when you talk about these kids that have kabuki syndrome, and I saw how you were with Isabella Marty when she was here for our wedding. You’re gonna be an excellent mom to that child whether it has kabuki or not. The baby is gonna be so ridiculously loved either way”. Zackariah and I both believe that God is author of life and that He has plans for this baby before we even knew there was a baby. We couldn’t be more thankful to Him for giving us this blessing.
So, there you have it guys the “miracle babies” are having their very own miracle baby. Many of you know the miracle that happened when my mom started to miscarry me and the Lord stopped the bleeding, but what you don’t know is that my husband wasn’t supposed to be born as well. Zackariah’s mom had just finished chemotherapy treatment and the doctors said she could never have children. When she went in to see if there was any possible ways of becoming pregnant, she found out she was pregnant with Zackariah. When Zackariah and I were first getting to know each other and found out we both were “miracle babies” we knew that it was clearly not just coincidence but God making our story even stronger. Because of that fact of our births being so special, Zackariah and I wondered if we would have a hard time having our own children or even if we would even have children. Well, we found out our answer pretty quickly. Haha! We believe that God has a wonderful story for our little one and we can’t wait to wait it unfold before our eyes.
After the shock wore off we began getting so excited about the baby. We were very careful not to get too excited because it is still early on and anything could still happen. As time passed and each week passed I was one step closer to finishing the first trimester (by the time I post this I will be entering week 10) the more excited and giddy we became. Our families and the very small select close friends we have chosen to tell are beside themselves happy with the news of a new member joining. We are so blessed to have such support group around us.
I’ve been pretty sick with this little one; morning sickness is more like all day sickness. But I’m reminded every time I’m sick that this is a good thing, which means the baby is growing and this sickness shall pass. For those of you that are local and have seen me recently here is the reason of me being so exhausted and pale. Zackariah has been an absolute blessing to me these past weeks caring for me with such care and understanding. He never turns down a request I ask of him and he does it with a happy heart, never once complaining. We have found an excellent doctor who we really love that specializes in genetics and is working alongside the genetics team that officially diagnosed me with Kabuki Syndrome almost 4 years ago. We really feel like we are in GREAT hands with them. We’ve had the opportunity to see our baby twice already and are amazed at how much the little one has grown. Doctor is really happy with the growth and the strong heartbeat. Baby is making mom and dad proud already with those reports.
I couldn’t think of a better way to announce our little one than on here. You all have read my hopes and fears. You have watched dreams of mine come true and now another one is being fulfilled. I am finally a Mommy to a little one. Pray for Zackariah and I as we begin this new journey of parenthood. As much as we are excited and thrilled there is still a bunch of unknowns and that is scary. Please pray for myself and the baby growing inside of me, that this pregnancy would be healthy and that in the end we have a healthy baby come August. We know that whatever happens we will continue to put our eyes upon Jesus, we have put our little one in His hands since the very beginning and trust that whatever happens we know God is good and He is God.
This sweet little one has captured our hearts in the most unexpected ways. And we know that he or she is already deeply loved by so many!
