Better than good

Update: Sadly, our little one was born into Heaven around 8 weeks gestation.


You by the light
Its the greatest find
In a world full of wrong
You're the thing that's right

Finally made it, through the lonely,
To the other side...

 The title of this song doesn't do it justice. I know it's about falling in love, romantic love, that is, but it feels so right now. We are falling in love again, with a little gift from God. We are excited and terrified all at the same time, but trusting in God's goodness and mercy. And after almost 6 years of struggles, it does feel like we've finally made it to the other side.


I'm pregnant!

  35. Congratulations, Charlotte! So happy for you...will add you to our prayer list.:) I can say I had a lot of fear going into this last seventh pregnancy. I even went into my delivery with all of that fear, but God is so faithful. There is light at the end of the tunnel & it's not a train! Our baby boy, Nicholas, is such a blessing, and is just another right piece to our family puzzle. Praying for you!

  48. I check your site every now and then for all the great ideas you generously share. When I saw the ticker at the top, at first I thought I was on the wrong blog! :) --Congratulations and prayers for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. I can identify with your fears amongst all the joy of a new baby. You are blessed, and this child is already blessed to have you for his/her mommy!
