We have news...

Our prayers have been answered and we are having another baby! I am 12 weeks along and feeling pretty good. Everything seems to be healthy and perfect so far! Please pray that continues, and also for Richard and I to have peace and discernment as we embark on this journey again. We are both so excited. We can already feel joy back in our home. Thank you to everyone for your ongoing support and outpouring of love. It means so much to us. God is good!

I have also added a new poem that speaks volumes to me already. You can see it on the right of the page. More to come...we will keep you posted!

  22. My jaw dropped open when I read that! I am SO happy for you both and send my prayers. How simply wonderful. I have 2 toddlers (3 1/2 and 2) after losing my baby daughter Lily and I always consider her to be our guardian angel in Heaven and we have been blessed.

  43. Wow, 45 comments! I'm not even sure you'll get to this one, but I've followed your blog since you were pregnant with Lilly, and I check on ya'll at least once a week. I don't think I've ever actually left a comment until today. You both have been in my thoughts and prayers, and I'm SO excited that you are expecting again! The poem in your sidebar is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.

  44. I'm so excited for you! I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw that beautiful little ultrasound picture today!

    You and Richard have, unknowingly, helped me through a couple of failed fertility treatments. Even when I found out I was pregnant (just a few weeks ahead of you), I often thought of your trust in the Lord on days I needed to trust He has things under control and would always be there for me.

    I LOVE the poem, too.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Congrats! What a blessing from the Lord. Will continue to pray for this little one. Love you and can't wait to see you next week!

    ReplyDelete
  46. What pure joy the two of you must be feeling! The Lord is so good! Your family is blessed. Congrats!

  47. My prayers have been answered!!!! Praise God!!! Jen, you and Richard have painfully been prepared to receive this new miracle and gift in your life. I know that there is no earthly reason that we know of that will bring any understanding for God's reason to bring Lillie to his side, but you shall have this precious gift at your side to remind us of his Love and Grace that will always be with us through our Lord Jesus. I am so happy for you and will pray for you, and the little miracle that we will celebrate when God's gift is delivered. I love you both so much and I'm so excited to experience this new gift that God has given us. Much love, Aunt Cyndi

I will pray for your pregnancy and your new bundle of joy to come, and I will always remember sweet Lilly. Congratulations again!

  68. I'm a stranger...but I have followed your blog for some time now. Tonight I am sitting here at my computer. I hadn't checked your blog in quite awhile, and when "Surviving Life's Curveballs" crossed my screen, I immediately felt compelled to check on you...thinking that you might have some special news to share. I'm so happy that you do!! What a blessing this little baby will be, just as Lilly was and IS! I'm praising God for His outpouring of love and provision on your lives!
