our summer family photos
A big thanks to Stefany of Alviar Photography, a Vancouver based lifestyles photographer. The gift of her time and talent blessed us immensely.
Florence is now nearly 2 and a half years old and I am 35 weeks pregnant.
We are learning to live life, stumbling around sometimes, but mostly with our chins held high, and the weighty thread of hope weaving a way through our lives. A way, where there often is no way.
We’re waiting in anticipation for the arrival of this little one, due around August 29th. We did not do genetic testing, for a variety of reasons. I’ve had my doubts, but mostly I know it was something that was right for us. Trust and Hope are otherworldly, and as Brené Brown says, “Hope is not an emotion; it’s a way of thinking or a cognitive process.”
Through this whole process, hope has become a way of thinking. It’s been gruelling at times, switching from fear to hope, painful, tiresome, hard, but whenever I dip into that way of thinking, I find myself breathing again.
