Dlhé roky túžila po oddanom mužovi, s ktorým bude vychovávať niekoľko detí. Jej sen sa však nesplnil, no nenechala sa odradiť. Rozhodla sa pre vážny životný krok aj bez partnera.
Žena sa rozhodla, že v jej živote je ten pravý čas na to, aby sa stala matkou. Aj napriek tomu, že predtým nikdy nemala sex a ani dlhodobejšieho partnera, podstúpila umelé oplodnenie. Žena nakoniec porodila bez toho, aby mala s mužom sex.
It’s so hard to believe that it was nearly a year ago that I sat across from @lovestephaniegreene on her sectional and she was my Gabriella. My angel tasked with delivering a message straight from the heart of God that I would have a baby. While it seemed so far-fetched, there was no denying the response of the Spirit in me. So like Mary, I prayed, „be it unto me.“ And here I am, completely undone by life growing inside of me…by being chosen to be Momma to this baby…by the fierce community to help me…by the strength rising in me…by saying yes to every adventure God offers me.

Michele Graze Elizaga snívala o krásnej rodinke a dokonalom mužovi. Svoj prvý sexuálny zážitok si preto šetrila pre svoju pravú lásku, ktorú však nikdy nestretla. Žena mala takmer 40 rokov a jej biologické hodiny tikali viac a viac. Princ na bielom koni neprichádzal a tak sa rozhodla pre najrozumnejšie riešenie ako mať vlastné dieťa – umelé oplodnenie.
Our last snuggles at St. Joe’s before we transferred to PCH yesterday. And thankfully, we had the much needed ENT consult by the end of the day and surgery is scheduled for later this afternoon. For those interested, they’ll perform a supraglottoplasty to address the laryngomalacia he has. Sounds pretty intense but it’s a simple surgery performed often and recovery time is far less than having tonsils removed. I’ve already heard from other mamas that the doctor performing the surgery is great, too! So right now, I’m so at peace and so grateful for the direction we’re moving in to get my sweet boy breathing and eating better. He did amazing with the transition, and all the poking and prodding…but momma’s heart was hurting through it all. I feel hopeful and strong about the surgery but please keep those prayers coming for us all today. We love you and are so grateful for your love. #matthewmovesmountains #iloveyoubabymatthewsummit

Michele sa veľmi tešila, ked‘ si urobila tehotenský test a bol pozitívny. Bol to pre ňu nesmierny dar. Začiatky tehotenstva boli veľmi radostné, pretože si vážila, že sa jej umelé oplodnenie podarilo na prvý pokus. Mnoho žien to skúša dlhé roky a nikdy im to nevýjde. Všetko prebiehalo hladko až do momentu, kedy sa dozvedela, že jej syn bude mať Downov syndróm.„Plakala som, bolo to ťažké, no rozhodla som sa tehotenstvo neukončiť.“
Jej vytúžený syn dostal meno Matthew. Michele dodala: ,,Myslela som si, že byť jeho matkou, bolo mojou voľbou, ale je to naopak. To on si vybral mňa, pretože vie, že by sa o neho nepostaral nikto lepšie, ako ja.“
We made it and he loves it here. And Momma survived the first night. Hallelujah. #matthewmovesmountains #iloveyoubabymatthewsummit

Michele taktiež povedala: ,,Matthew zo mňa vytiahol silu, ktorú som nikdy nepoznala a kvôli nemu viem, čo znamená niekoho milovať celým srdcom. Radosť, ktorú mi neustále prináša sa nedá k ničomu prirovnať. Je pre mňa tým najväčším darom, aký som kedy dostala.“ Okrem iného tvrdí, že rolu slobodnej matky by nikdy nemenila.
Day 41. I just finished another meal in the hospital cafeteria where I can get a good serving of eggs, bacon and potatoes for $3.44. So I’ll count that blessing. And last night marks the third time in 41 days that I’ve slept in the same room with my baby. That’s the best blessing. And one that was exhilarating and exhausting. I love that we’re together but at the same time, hate that we’re separated – by the very things that are sustaining his life. So I guess it’s more of a love hate relationship with the tubes, tape, monitors and leads that get in the way of holding him, snuggling him, kissing him, changing his diapers…they just don’t make much easy for me. But my selfishness aside, how grateful am I that they are providing my baby the breath and nourishment to thrive (another blessing). And I said to the nurse last night that I’m so grateful he’s not suffering (and another). And I said to my best friend recently that I’m grateful Matthew knows no different (and yet another). Unlike his Momma who counts all the ways this should be, he’s going with the flow of it all. So I continue to learn so much from him. And I’m obviously doing my best to count my blessings instead of my griefs. So one more, I know we’re not alone. God is so present and the peace that passes all understanding has never been more evident to me. And I have lost count of your messages and prayers and everything…thank you. I’m so grateful grace is never ending. It’s providing me the breath and nourishment I need. #matthewmovesmountains #iloveyoubabymatthewsummit

Matthew has been home for 3 weeks now and I can truly say that the NICU is but a distant memory. He’s doing great and and I’m exhausted, but that’s to be expected. We’re still contending with tubes and cords and can’t wait for the day to be free of them…praying it’s soon as we have an appointment in a few weeks to assess his pulmonary hypertension. In the meantime, I’m trying to find a daycare that will accommodate him while preparing my heart for that day which will be here soon. Of course I knew I would have to work and he would have to go to daycare, I just didn’t expect to have such a short time home with him before that day came. But the good news is I can see how the NICU prepared me to care for him once he came home and I won’t be able to say that leaving him at daycare is the first time I’ve had to part with him. I know it will still be hard but I’m discovering just how resilient I am. I also couldn’t do any of this without the help of friends and family from near and far. You know who you are and we’re eternally grateful. So for now, please find us basking in morning snuggles, getting naps in whenever we can, out of the house as needed, and trying to get some fresh air when the temps allow for it which isn’t often but we’ll keep trying!! #matthewmovesmountains #iloveyoubabymatthewsummit
