A Third Child

God is so good to us. First he makes us wait forever for any children. Then he blesses us with two on June 1..... boy, was that labor getting ready for them! The house was a disaster, and I came so close to saying no!!! If Tim had not been home to help me get ready, I would have said no.

BUT GOD knew better and he had Tim home, and we worked our butts off getting ready..... and we have been thanking the Lord every day since for his amazing provision for us.

And now...... here I am about to go to the doctor to beg for some specific medicine, but to get it I have to prove I'm not pregnant.... and viola!!! I AM!!! I guess I don't need the medicine, and five pregnancy tests later it is starting to sink in. It helped to drive around and tell everyone and see the happy faces, and to call certain others and hear the laughter!

This pregnancy will bring us our third child, not our first or second. She, because I'm sure it is a girl, will have two amazing big brothers to teach her wonderful, disgusting things.

This is our third blessing from the Lord, and we are equally thankful for each one!

  7. Dear Tim, Emily,and boys,

    PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!! To say we are excited and thrilled for you all is an understatement! I wondered if this might happen when I found out the boys' adoption was near. God's timing is PERFECT and He certainly has a sense of humor! :) We are praying for a smooth adoption process, easy pregnancy, and safe delivery. Take care of each other!

    In Christ,

  9. Emily--just wanted you to know that I am rejoicing with you. The Lord made you wait a long time to become a mother, but has blessed you with your hearts desire--3 times over! How kind and gracious our Lord is. =) I have been praying for our niece or nephew in your womb since we heard the news. I can't wait to meet all 3 of your little ones!
