We can't wait to celebrate a new birthday this October!!!
: : : L I F E : : :
This baby came after much waiting, many tears, confusion, and some of the most raw and honest praying
I have ever done. I definitely passed through a season of doubting in the darkness what God has revealed
to me in the light. And that is: He is faithful. He is good. And His timing is perfect.
I don't share those words lightly or with an ounce of righteousness. I share them because I need to hear
them again and again and again. Every single day. For the rest of my life. He is faithful. He is good.
And His timing is perfect. It's my great lesson: learning to TRUST.
How quick I am to grasp at the things I want - the things I think will make me happy.
It's funny. In the time we spent waiting for this baby, we actually could have conceived
and already had a newborn by this point. But then... I wouldn't know this baby. I wouldn't
know this joy. I wouldn't know the goodness that God prepared for me in this season of my life.
For a brief season I experienced what it is like to suffer from infertility. To wonder and wait
month after month only to be more confused by the charts, the doctors, the ideas that every
well-intentioned person has to share in regards to "getting pregnant." My heart still breaks for those of
you who have shared your story of infertility with me. Know that I still pray for you. Still hope for you.
Thank you for your virtual hugs, many prayers, kind words, and faith. God is good!

Which puts me right at 16 weeks.
I think it's another boy, but I guess we're just going to have to wait and see!!!
