Our Big Miracle

By 9:50 PM , , , , ,

We are THRILLED to announce we are expecting baby #2 in February! (I realize this photo says March but we took the photo before we had the official date because we knew I would be gone for job training when it was time to announce). After a year and half of struggling with infertility due to a number of factors including complications from birth of our first child and ultimately being told we had less than a 0.001% chance of being able to conceive naturally again we are so excited and thankful to God for this miracle baby that ultimately came as the most wanted, yet unexpected surprise! While timing initially seemed a little crazy with me having just started a new job that puts me on the road a lot and right at the time where I am kicking off 6 weeks of intense training away from home we are still so thankful and trusting in God that His timing is always the best timing. Big brother is thrilled as well and he says, "God has finally answered his prayers just like I knew He would." He swears the baby is a girl. We will find out Sunday....can't wait! Now if we can just get this sickness to pass that would be oh so wonderful. 

We will have a planned c-section this go round due to complications from my last birth; however, I am very grateful to have found a doctor who will complete a family Cesarean (more about this later - if you are interested you can google for more information). 

While we are absolutely thrilled and praising God for our little miracle I still post this with bitter sweet emotions very well aware that some of my readers will see this and feel a sting in their heart because they want a baby so badly and are praying madly for their own blessing and God has not yet answered their prayer. To that someone please know precious friend that I know that sting so very well and am praying for you even though I may not know who you are...even though I am probably the last one you want to talk to right now please know I am here to talk if you ever want someone to talk to. Know it's ok to feel sad. Also trust me in believing God's timing and plans for your family is always best although I know from personal experience it may not always feel like it in the moment!
