A note to you.

A special note to IF friends and sisters, and others who are/have been waiting with me:

Hi there. Your support and encouragement has been invaluable to me.

SO. Now I have become one of "those" women, who tried almost everything, was on a break, applied for adoption, and got pregnant out of the blue. I am praying my story does not haunt and irritate other waiting-women for years to come- but I have no control over it (I'm sorry... sigh!).

At the same time, I know this story is a miracle. I have not tracked an ovulation for the three years we've been trying, besides when on fertility drugs. I mean, I have joked about an immaculate conception, but I feel like this comes pretty close and I'm so thankful for this. I'm also so aware that the fact that we've made it to 13 weeks and 2 days of pregnancy with no complications is another miracle, after the ones we've lost early.

I don't know why God has decided to show us such grace at this time, yes we have been praying and others too, but so have you for your child, so why me and not you, and why now and not before or later, who knows?

We don't take this for granted and we are trying our best to celebrate each day of it, while praying we can carry this one to term.

When I wrote 'unexpected journey' in the little blurb under my blog title I didn't really think of this extent of the unexpected! Gosh. Yet at the same time we've been praying for it so what else was I thinking? I'm also still keen to continue this blog so we'll see what happens.

I just wanted to acknowledge you and let you know that your support and prayers are what have sustained us and continue to be needed. I also want to keep caring for you so please let me know how best I can.

Love s

You are a beautiful person and I am truly happy for you and your husband! How can we not rejoice with parents-to-be that are going to raise their child in a Christian home! Bless you for still thinking of those that have not yet experienced the miracle of pregnancy.

Sarah - you are precious! Praying for you and the baby, and that you will know best how to continue on your journey in supporting others on this journey.

Just enjoy your pregnancy as best as you can. I hope it goes as smoothly as it can be. I've personally stopped asking God any questions 'coz it's no use. Plus, I have a feeling that even if I know the real answer, as rebellious as I am, I MAY not accept it he sometimes not knowing is better. :-)))) THANK YOU for writing this post nonetheless. :-)))
