That's right, we are expecting a baby!!!
It's not enough to just say how thankful we are...our entire family is overjoyed! We are so humbled by God and His glorious generosity.
Baby #9! 7 living and 1 in Heaven....
My kids, esp. #2 and #3, who made their First Holy Communion this year, are SO very happy!!! They both asked for a new baby in our family after their received their first Holy Communion and knelt down in prayer. How my heart melts at the thought of this and the reality of this. How amazingly generous THEY are! According to St. Therese, Jesus told her that anyone who makes their first Holy Commuion and after recieving our Lord in the Eucharist, kneels down and prays for anything, that God will answer and grant it. SO HE DID!!!
My kids have been praying for a new baby since our lil' Lady was about 5 months old...we concieved back in Nov. 2011, then sadly miscarried. Then here we are again! How loving my children know of God-how much He grants their prayers and loves them all. I am so very humbled. Truly.
I am 8 1/2 weeks along today. I went and got an ultrasound last week and there is a strong heartbeat. Oh, how my whole body was shaking as we began the ultrasound then how is relaxed with such JOY!!! My hubby was there with me (which has not happened...oh, since maybe baby #2?!) and it was truly a gift that he was there. Again, he was my strength and my rock. I held tight to his hand, starring in his eyes until the moment we saw AND HEARD the awesome heartbeat of our sweet little one. I love that sound!!!
So...the word is out. I have told my family and friends and now YOU! :)
Please please add us to your prayers. We are praying so much for this baby that all turns out okay, but most of all, we are praying to be at ease and at peace with whatever God chooses for our family and sees fit. B/c His will is ALWAYS the best, no matter what.
Thank you so much for praying-we appreciate it.
We are so excited, so happy and so very very thankful to God for this gift of LIFE!
Due date is Feb. 6, 2013.
