The Mother of Adventure

‘Our little miracle baby’ (Parenting Times magazine)

on May 11, 2014

Sonia and ElissaSeeing as it’s Mother’s Day today, I thought it was fitting that I share the story of our difficult entrance into parenthood.

Our first-born daughter, Elissa, was born with a large cyst in her brain – which made for a lot of uncertainty in the latter stages of my pregnancy and through the major surgeries she underwent in her first year of life. We have been infinitely blessed with a very happy ending – and I wrote about how it feels to look back 10 years later in ‘Our little miracle baby’, published in the latest issue of Parenting Times magazine.

Wishing all the moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day – take a moment today to savour the blessing of a happy, healthy family.

  1. What a heart breaking story with the best happy ending ever! Sometimes we look back on life and think, “How did I get thru that?” Happy Mother’s Day!

    • That’s very true, Heather…it’s nice to have those tough times in the rearview mirror. But you can’t wish them away, or else you would never fully appreciate life’s blessings.
