Remember how I mentioned that there were a few reasons why I needed to take the summer off from blogging? Well…..I’m just going to go ahead and leave these family pictures here and then walk away whistling with a grin, okay?




(I have a story to tell you, believe me. This is might just be our miracle baby.)

  • Sarah Silvester

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!! I’m SO excited! Huge congratulations!!!!

  • Sherilyn Miller

    OH. MY. WORD!!! My heart almost wants to stop–YAY, YAY, YAY!!!! Huge congratulations!!! I feel so wistful, wonder so much if some of our stories when it comes to tinies are somewhat similar. We lost wee ones too and have two miracle wee boys now after our first three girls, and it still feels like such a sacred miracle.

    I keep coming here to comment after your last posts–I so hope it is okay for me to, please, please let me know if not!!! Anyway, I just can’t find words to breathe my heart out… so much means so, so much–your post on depression meant the absolute world to me, and the last post on the KINGDOM come, the mac and cheese one, oh just hang it, all of them… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I feel sorta shy, but I saw this and I just had to say something, even if I am not sure how to say it!

    Just to let you know I am not some hurtful stalker, I am the Mennonite woman you laid hands on at PRAXIS–I still feel those prayers holding up my arms in the midst of everything we are trying to walk with Jesus through–Isn’t He most, most precious, sometimes I feel like I have missed so much of Him that I am simply starved for Him–is that too weird?? πŸ™‚

    Love you!

  • Cara

    Oh wow! Congratulations!!!!! I’m so happy for you and your sweet family!
