Latest News

Much has been going on lately. It is challenging to put it all in words. We are very excited to announce that there will be another little one to join our family in late February. That finally said, I can say that I am quite tired, a little nauseous, and a lot excited. My hubby and I were able to see our little one on the ultrasound today. The baby's heartbeat was strong and a welcome sight.

Our kids are excited and are really rooting for a boy. My son is not sure that he can handle four sisters. Either way, a fifth child will bring some logistic challenges, returning sleepless nights, and many more blessings.

God has chosen to bless us again with another child and we are extremely thankful. In some ways, February is a long way off. On the other hand, it will come more quickly than we think.

My prayer has been that through this pregnancy and in the gift of this child, the Lord would be honored and glorified. That is a scary prayer. God has chosen in the past to take three of my children home to be with Him before I had the chance to meet them. In my humanness, I don't want that to happen, but that is out of my control. God is sovereign and has a perfect plan for our family. We are excited for the opportunity to have another child in our home and pray that in His perfect will we will enjoy meeting this little blessing in February.
