A dream come true...

Our 4th child is a GIRL! We took some time last night to really process everything and we are SO happy and stand amazed at how perfectly God is planning out our family. He truly gave us the desire of our hearts. We strongly desired for Grace to get to experience having a sister pretty close in age and that she will have! We always wanted to name our daughters after their 2 wonderful grandmothers so their names are Grace Angela (Grandma Bradfield) and Mercy Lee (Nana Rich). God is so good and we cannot conprehend just how much He has blessed us. Last Christmas we were grieving 2 miscarriages and by this Christmas we will be holding our precious new daughter. God sure has a way of redeeming things even when we don't understand when trials come! I know for me it has given me more patience with my kids, a true heart of gratefulness for my fertility, and a whole new understanding of how each baby God gives is truly a gift and a privilege...


Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing Shall doubtless come again rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him! Psalm 26:5-6

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth, Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed but shall speak with their enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:4-5
