It's been two months since I posted.
Time just slipped away.
And now,
our baby boy will be born.

Just the other day I was considering
the birth of this baby,
with the birth of our first baby.

And while both spring from our deep desire
to have a family,
I feel that the first was planted in a soil of desperation:
Will I ever conceive?
Please God, I'd pray, please...

And this little one,
after having birthed his sister,
after sitting in the joy of being a mama,
and a family,
was planted in a soil of gratitude.

And along with Mary, I cry:
My soul magnifies the Lord,
for He has done great things for me.
