against all odds, and totally unexpectedly. the last letter we had from our specialist said we would not get pregnant without medical intervention, so we had pretty much set aside the idea of having kids biologically.
however, it seems that God had other plans.
and we couldn't be more excited.
yes, of course we could still lose this pregnancy and be heartbroken, like before. but you know what? this is the verse that keeps echoing back to us, and we are not afraid of God's plan for us, whatever it is.
we're especially excited for sam. we've always felt that he was born to be a brother. he loves other kids, and seems to expand in their presence. he's lovable and affectionate and protective and a little bossy ... he will be the most amazing big brother ever :).
we also - maybe - possibly - might be adding another little boy to our family later this spring. he's sam's age, has been in foster care from day 1, and we pray with all our hearts that he will be placed in a loving home - and we're hoping that we will be able to be that home.
so who knows? this fall we might be a family of five ...
bring it on.
