What my God has done...
"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my
petition which I asked of Him." 1 Samuel 1:27
Yes, this verse means what you think it does. This time 3 months ago I was in the depths of despair after suffering a devastating 2nd miscarriage on Christmas Day. I wondered if I would ever give birth to another child. Today I am thrilled to announce that God has heard our prayers and decided to make us a family of 6! We saw precious baby Rich today for the first time with a very strong heartbeat at almost 8 weeks gestation. We will meet this little blessing sometime around November 6th. Please keep us in your prayers these next few weeks as my HCG levels are very high and causing extreme nausea/vomiting which is a wonderful sign as far the health/strength of this pregnancy! Just pray that God will give us the grace to make it through the next few weeks until I get to feeling well. It is especially tough for Daniel trying to pick up the slack when I am so sick. In spite of the sickness though I cannot begin to describe the joy and excitement we feel over this child! After losing 2 it is like having our first child all over again! I also wanted to mention that we have found what is believed to have caused the miscarriage's and the problem was easily fixable. I will write more on that later. God is so good! Please join our family in praying for this precious baby who is looking forward to meeting you all this Fall:-)
A very happy pregnant Mommy!
