The Best Gift

January 31st was a day I was dreading. It was the day I'd have to have empty arms instead of a baby. It was my due date. The due date for the little baby that joined our second baby, already in Heaven.

But when January 31st rolled around, while I was sad for a little bit and remembered the sweet baby that I'll meet someday, I was distracted. God knows what He's doing. He surprised us.

Because I'm pregnant!

It's the best possible gift I can think of to celebrate as January 31st came and went.

Thank you, God!!!

We have a long (and exciting) road of ahead of us. You can read below some of what we've been through in the past year and it's been very hard. We'd love it if you would join us in praying for this little baby. I know God has great plans and He's much bigger than anything that could go wrong.

God brought us our daughter against (as we found out later) the odds and I have great faith that He can do the same with this baby growing inside of me!
