My Tattoos: My Miracle Baby Tattoo

My Tattoos: My Miracle Baby Tattoo.

For three years, Jonathan and I tried to get pregnant with our third child, to no avail. Those years were full of heartache for us both. During that time, a good friend of mine from South Africa, Matt, send me a book of South African aboriginal tribal art. I saw many instances of women surrounded by this symbol. I thought it very lovely, almost like a starfish, in a way. So I decided to get it tattooed on my left wrist. Three weeks later, I found out I was pregnant with Eden! And a few months after that, I found out that my tattoo is actually an ancient fertility symbol. As a result, I always refer to it as "My Miracle Baby Tattoo." Posted by Hello
