I had been trying for almost a year to get pregnant when we found out that there was a fertility problem with Cassandra’s dad. The doctor told us it would be miraculous if I got pregnant. We were going on vacation, but before leaving I went to this odd little novelty shop and purchased a small fertility goddess statue. I packed that along with my bathing suit.
Cassandra was conceived on that trip and I had an uneventful and joyous pregnancy. Because I was a bit overdue the doctor decided to induce me. He asked me what date I wanted and I told him I wanted to enjoy Mothers day.
Five and a half hours after entering the hospital, Cassandra was born. It was at 2:34 PM on May 10th.
My heart is whole.
