Family News

I am pregnant.

It's such a simple sentence, but writing it feels to me both exhilerating and scary, much like my hesitant jumps off the high dive when I was ten.

You see, the link between pregnancy and having a baby has been severed in my experience, and I am still finding it difficult to reestablish the connection.  Telling the world is one way to choose to celebrate this life, to rejoice in this child who is right now very much alive, making her presence known with gentle flips and kicks while I write.  I battle fear of losing this baby every day, probably will until she is safely in my arms, but I don't want to be consumed by that fear.

So I'm telling you all:  I am pregnant, twenty weeks.  It's another little girl.  We are delighted and terrified, grateful and hopeful.

Praying for you and the precious girlie growing inside of you. Thanks for taking the time to write and share about what God has been and is teaching you through your journey. Although I don't always comment, I always read.

Congratulations, Abby! A new little girl to cherish and love.
My two girls are super close (18 months apart). You probably remember them as little girls :). God will give you grace to trust him each day.

I tagged you on FB in a picture where you were probably about 10!
