Since the title of our blog is watch our garden grow, I guess you could say we are blooming. When we began to tell people that we were adopting, the one thing we heard most often is "as soon as you adopt, you're going to get pregnant." To be honest, after having had 2 miscarriages, that was the LAST thing I wanted. Well, I guess you all can say, "I told you so!" because we are exactly that, 12 weeks pregnant! Holy Cow! We are still in shock, excited beyond belief, and a little scared. I had my 12 week appointment today and we heard the heartbeat, which was such a relief. We don't understand the timing of it all but are grateful to God for the blessing of all our children, and His timing is perfect. So as we celebrate this time in our life, please also be in prayer for us. Once you have had a pregnancy loss, that is ALWAYS in your mind. Please pray for a healthy pregnancy, a healthy baby, and peace of mind as we look for a bigger vehicle and a bigger house and prepare to be a family of 5!
On August 21st, 2008, we brought our two beautiful daughters home from Guatemala through the miracle of adoption. In January 2009, we found out that we would be adding 2 more feet to our family through the miracle of birth. Please follow our journey as we prepare to become a family of five!
