    Baby Announcements 2009

    Jim & Andrea, I'm not on the forum much anymore. But the 1st thing I check is to see in the gallery if there is a new baby picture for you guys. I knew the date was getting close. I was just thinking this morning that new baby and Gavin would be 4 1/2 years apart. That's perfect! We are so, so excited for you guys. And I especially love the name!! Can't wait to meet her. Hopefully at the reunion at the end of August?!? Toni

    Adopting a second time

    UNDER 2?!?!? YIKES!!! I wanted children at least 4 years apart. Oh well, God has his own plans and defnitely knows what's best for us. Someone once told me that having 2 children is not double the work, it's more like 4 times the work. Uhhhh and they weren't joking. I don't know why that is, but it's true.

    Things Infertile Folk Hate to Hear

    Okay, now that comment really gets under my skin. After we were blessed with Gracie's presence in our lives, it broke my heart to realize that I missed 1 single second of her life. I was blessed to meet Gracie when she was 7 minutes old. But I missed the first 39 weeks and 7 minutes of her life. And for that I was very sad. People don't get it and they certainly don't think!

    Things Infertile Folk Hate to Hear

    I've even had people that have a lot of experience with infertility make the following comment to me (since I'm now 32 weeks pregnant). "Yeah, that (pregnancy) happens all the time to those people with 'unexplained infertility'. " That's funny, my doctor sure didn't think my infertility was "unexplained." Adoption/Pregnancy --- it all has some serious labor pains. Comments like really get me heated under the collar. Because to me those people are forgetting what a complete MIRACLE that all of it (adoption/pregnancy) is!! As Celeste stated so eloquently CLUELESS!!!

    Things Infertile Folk Hate to Hear

    And when it (pregnancy) does miraculously happen to you, you just hate to hear that almost "I told you so - Adopt and see you get pregnant." --- Nevermind the fact that we hadn't had any birthcontrol for 5 years and the doctor said it was a less than 1% chance it would happen. It's like people don't see adoption/babies/pregnancy for the miracle that God has made it!

    Lighting your Spiritual Fire

    Up until about 2.5 months ago, it was reading my Bible at about 5:15 a.m. each morning followed by my morning outside run/or sometimes a gym workout......then I was always ready to take on the world (once I saw what God was creating outside each morning, life was good---be it rain, sleet or shine) ...............Now...it's reading my Bible first thing, but not so early, since I'm not allowed to exercise right now.
