My story began last summer. I was introduced to The Secret by watching a talk show. The commercials caught my attention and I just had to watch it. I thankfully decided to tape it because after watching I was so taken by it that I wanted my husband to watch it too. I then had to learn more and decided to buy the DVD. I watched the DVD several times a week and was trying to incorporate the positive thinking and bring happiness into my everyday thinking, because that was what I was trying to achieve the most at that time. BUT little did I know that the happiness was only beginning…
I have 2 wonderful daughter ages 8 and 12. A few years ago me and my husband were tossing the idea of having another baby. A few things were stopping us. When it comes to me getting pregnant, it’s nearly impossible. Both pregnancies were conceived with the use of fertility drugs, and then once I get pregnant I have a host of complications, so much so that my youngest daughter was born 8 weeks early. With my history my husband and I decided that maybe it was in our best interests to count our blessings on the 2 beautiful girls that we have, and just give up on the idea of having anymore babies. He also said that if I could promise him that I would not have any prenatal problems with my health or the babies, then he would be more willing. Knowing that I could not make that kind of promise I mentally came to terms with the fact that I would not have anymore babies.
To help me deal with the maternal feeling I was dealing with I put my energy to use in other things. I love to sew and do all sorts of arts and crafts. I had a family member suggest to make extra money to sell items that I make on a popular internet auction site. So to fill that void I started making little frilly newborn dresses to sell for newborns to come home from the hospital in. This was something I did for my girls and I love so much to make. As time went on through this internet auction site I discovered a new art form that I truly fell in love with, Reborning. Reborning (fake baby) is an art that you take babydolls and repaint them to make them look like real babies, it’s a form of collectible art. I then turned my energy toward making these baby dolls and I also would make their clothing. This art form oddly enough filled that void.
Well last year (2007), during the summer I started becoming real tired, and with the economy the way it has been going sales were slow. I stopped making the dolls and actually was focusing more on trying to figure out why I had become so tired that I could not stay awake. Well you may of guessed it, that Fall I discovered that I indeed was pregnant. I could not believe it. So much so that I was 4 months pregnant when I figured this out. WHAT A SHOCK! I managed to get pregnant with no medical help. I had always wanted to do that, get pregnant by accident, as a surprise, without medical help. As the pregnancy went on I had very limited problems. This pregnancy was a breeze, except for the fact that I had to sleep all the time. My husband believes that the sleeping/bedrest helped my health and eventually my pregnancy. We later found out we were having a little boy, my little blessing. He was born this past March. I also for medical reasons have to have C-sections to deliver my babies. In the past I had problems with the anesthesia and would feel the surgery. I discussed this problem with my DR – this C-section was a breeze, I felt nothing. I could barely feel my fingers at the time. I cried a few days after I had my little guy because everything did go so smoothly that I wished my girls pregnancies went as well.
Well, I did not realize till just a couple of weeks ago that my baby boy was a product of “Attraction”. I discovered a friend that I met through that online auction and emailed her through one of her auctions. I checked my emails to see if she had emailed me back, and what I did get was a copy of the email I sent her along with all my info. It shows me as a potential buyer. Staring back at me in this email was the day I joined this online auction site, and the date I was staring at was my son’s birthday, but 3 years earlier! It suddenly clicked – all the wishes that I and my hubby had made all came true.
My little boy is such a blessing, he has brought such joy to our whole family. My girls have thanked me many times for giving them a little brother. He gives us all smiles daily, and when he smiles up at me I have many times found myself tearing up from the joy that he brings me looking at the sweet little face.
When you least expect it dreams do come true!!!
