Once upon a time...

...there lived a young girl who would always say to her Mother "all I want to do is get married and have children" and her Mother would reply "the right one will come along one day and you will just know". It seemed like marriage and children were on her mind each second she was awake and this young girl would search hard in her heart to understand the phrase 'you will just know' and why so many married woman would leave her stranded all on her own on a deserted island, well that's how it felt for a young 16 year old girl.

A few young boys would take her fancy but because she was modest she did not want to show her true feelings in casethe young boy was not the one destined for her.

One day a girlfriend and herself went on a holiday together. As they were driving to church in the pouring rain they were both intrigued by the shops and this is not a good idea when you are in a car and moving, so the inevitable happened, BANG straight into the cars rear. As all best friends would the young lady began to laugh, quite loud actually and her girlfriend was not impressed.

"God is up to something good" exclaimed the young girl to the very burdened friend.

She was right, that day at church the young girl met a man. She did not know that he was the one instantly but over the next few months he began to chase her, just like she always wanted her soul mate to do.

 For the young girl this turned out to be a real life fairy tale and all that she hoped for.

They married!

It was one year and 11 months later she was blessed with her first child - a son.

Then four years later she was blessed with her second child - a daughter.

A pigeon pair, is what she would always hear. This young girl felt very content and blessed with one of each.

Threeyears later the married couple began to talk and pray,talk and pray, talk and pray about having a third child. The girl had fears seeing the other births had complications, so she kept saying no.

For the next two years, they were indecisive, until one day, wasn't any special kind of day, it was just a different day,for the young girl had no fears but a very strong desire to hold another baby and the desire was the same for her husband.

Today the young woman is twelve weeks pregnant and besides being extrememly fatigued, nauseated, sick, and vomiting she is one very happy girl.

The End be continued
