The morning of my birthday, waking up next to Gavin, I had this overwhelming feeling that I couldn't believe could possibly be true. I just knew I was pregnant.
I just knew it.
I've never had a strong feeling about gender with any of my pregnancies... but for some reason, that morning in Gavin's hospital room, I knew this baby was a girl. And I knew her name would be Hope.
It had to be Hope.
Ed and I are so, very happy to announce that
Hope Margaret Leong
is our new daughter.
The genetic testing came back showing no major genetic issues. As we well know, because of Gavin, anything can happen. We have chosen to hold onto Hope... leave our worries behind... and embrace this beautiful gift from Heaven.
Because truly, this little girl was sent from Heaven. And she will have two incredible brothers in Gavin and Brian. I truly believe that Gavin already knows her.
Last night, I had my first real dream about Gavin. (At least that I remembered) It was so real that I woke up believing that it truly was that... real. We interlaced our fingers and danced and he jumped up and down in excitement. I felt him... I saw him clear as day. It couldn't have happened at a more perfect time, this dream. I needed to see him, to feel him again... and he came for me.
Thank you for believing Hope Margaret born this December!!!
(For those who are curious... HIS name would have been Dean Gavin Leong. We were winners either way!)
