It has been the most surreal couple of months FINALLY being pregnant. I find myself wanting to constantly shout it from the rooftops. This time last year I was telling a friend of mine how comfortable I was becoming in “my infertility“. I had reached the point where I felt infertility was my reality and if I’m being honest, I was defeated. In a “God has a sense of humor” twist, my mother called me two days later to tell me that God wants me to stop telling people I’m barren because I am not. Lol I almost fainted! Anyway, a year has passed and I’m a believer! God has been truly faithful and we stand as a point of contact for all those people waiting on their own miracle. Your testimony will be perfected in Jesus name.

Now to the gender reveal… My sister (and future godmother of our child), planned a casual backyard gender reveal with just our immediate family.  Both our mothers flew in from Nigeria because they couldn’t miss finding out the exact time we did. We had no preference in gender (we were/are just so freaking happy to be having a child) so it was more a question of “who do we start preparing for?” It was a pure, unfiltered moment that I will forever cherish. Make sure you check out the video at the end. Olamide’s reaction is priceless. Images by April Elizabeth Photography

The Reveal

There’s a story behind this blanket. One of my husband’s patients who knew about our struggle and who successfully has her miracle baby after years of infertility, had been praying for us for 2 years. Every now and then, she’d send me a heartfelt handwritten note to encourage me and remind me that God has a perfect plan for us. I was so deep in my hole of depression that these sweet notes were always shining lights to at least remind me of the kindness you can find in strangers. A month or so into our pregnancy, she sent Olamide home with this blanket and I burst into tears. This is from someone I have never met. Someone who understood what I was going through and wanted me to feel loved. I will forever cherish this gift and can’t wait for our son to use it.

    Kunbi, my eyes filled with tears reading this. I am so so happy for you. I don’t know what it’s like to wait for a baby, but I know what it’s like to wait and wait for a miracle that feels like it’s never coming. I know the cycle of hope, prayers, waiting, disappointment, depression, resignation, sleep, repeat. God is faithful and if we hold on long enough, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Your miracle makes my heart happy!
