we have HUGE news.


ok, i don't quite know how to say this to the world...

but

please read the whole post as I will try to answer any/all questions that will be sure to pop up in your head.


it's true!! 

are we super excited? YES. 
are we surprised? YES. 

was this planned? NO. 
we could not be more excited, honored and humbled to bring a new life into this world and our family. 

with that said, the past couple weeks since we've known have been a little bittersweet. 

{please don't get me wrong here}

excitement is all over our house, but in a way we have felt like we've mourned some loss.
we were hoping to be matched with a birth mom super soon and have a new baby in the next couple months via adoption. 

now, the plans are changing. 
a BIG yes, we are still adopting. 

our time frame will change now and look different than what we had imagined. 

what's the plan? 

we will have a baby 
{due in Febuary}

we will start the adoption process again when our babes is about 10 months. 
everything we've saved/earned/been granted toward the adoption process, will still go to our adopted baby, but again it just changes our timeline. 

so, that's where we are at. i know God has a plan and he's so trustworthy and His plan is way better than one I could write.

 so, we're trusting and moving forward. 

p.s. the photo above is from when i was 7 months pregnant with lon's. don't worry. i'm not that big yet.

Wow this sounds so familiar :) I don't know if you read my blog or not but this EXACT thing just happened to us, no joke. We are in the process and STILL in the process of doing foster to adopt a little 1 year old boy (our boy is 2) and I'm due in January. Crazy? yes! our plan? no. God's plan? YES! I am super excited for your family and this new little life. Can't wait to see what God has in store for your family.

Kelley said...

Yay! So exciting!! I mean Im sure its a little bittersweet but God has bigger plans as you said and He just wanted to bless you with another one sooner than you thought :) Maybe its because your perfect match hasn't been conceived yet and He wanted to give you a little surprise to hold you off.
