An Announcement

Dear friends, I have some exciting news to share with you:

My darling husband and I will be welcoming a new member to our family around January 16th, 2010, God willing! Yes! I'm pregnant!

Due to a bad case of self-delusion, we actually didn't find out until I was already 6 weeks along. I'm now nearly 8 and have been blessed beyond reason: morning sickness has barely kicked in so far. I'm more tired than I've been in my entire life and hungry enough for an army, but still feeling quite well overall. We have our first sonogram in a little under 2 weeks.

This is a miracle in so many ways. God is ministering to my heart on multiple levels. Motherhood is the desire of my heart, and this is perfect timing for our family. On a quieter note, for those who've been with me a little longer, my due date is exactly a year from my previous heartbreak. That is part of a quiet assurance I have that everything this time will go smoothly.

I'm thrilled, Shaune's thrilled, our parents are thrilled and shocked at the same time. God provides! ***squeaks of joy***

Oh dear, DEAR Jenny!! What wonderful, blessed news! I've been looking forward to this announcement from you ever since your terribly sad loss earlier. Congratulations!!!!

It is interesting how the Lord works and how He takes and then gives again. I lost my first baby on Jan 22nd. The following Jan. 22nd, I found out I was pregnant with baby #2. His miracles and ways are amazing and beyond our comprehension.

I am just thrilled for you and your husband!!! God Bless!

Jenny!!! That's wonderful! The timing is so neat, I asked the Lord for a year to heal from my awful miscarriage and He granted it *exactly* lol. I'm so happy for you both!
