Thank you for the encouraging emails, texts, words of encouragement and hugs. Your graciousness means so much to us. We are settling into these unknowns much quicker than I thought we would and are feeling an overall sense of peace about the future.
We both understand that there is a plan. There is always a plan.
IF our baby has been given an extra chromosome I'm going to buy this shirt
So, we'll find out in about 18 weeks whether our baby is a boy or a girl and whether or not he/she has Down Syndrome. For now we wait ... enjoy life and give great thanks for the miracle of pregnancy, our daughters, redemption and God's promise to never forsake us. We face nothing alone.
Then the Lord said to him, "Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? (Exodus 4:11 ESV)
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. (Psalm 139:13, 14 ESV)
- I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.
