Proof of Life!

It is with great excitement- and a heavy dose of surrealism- that we share that we are expecting our 7th baby.  We have every reason to believe and hope that this baby will not be a glory baby, but a baby that we will hold in our arms this side of heaven.  After three appointments with good reports, we have a healthy baby with a strong heartbeat.  

We have proof of life!

So many of you have loved us and prayed with us over the last 3 1/2 years and we remain grateful to you and your prayers over the course of this journey.  

The journey, at times, has been dark and unrelenting.  But we know that GOD has always been working for our good.  That HE has always loved us.  That HE always was writing a part of the story that we could not see or fully comprehend.  

HE still is and while we still do not know how our story will end, we remain grateful to the GOD who makes all things new.  To the ONE who makes beauty from ashes.  To the FATHER who heals the broken-hearted. And who promises to give us the desires of our heart.

Please keep praying for us and pray that our baby grows healthy and strong and that we can meet them in September.

"...but this happened that we might not rely on ourselves, but on GOD....on HIM we have put our hope that HE will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers.  Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many."  I Corinthians 1:9-10

That's my baby saying "Hi!"
