Tidings of great joy!

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm having a baby! We really need prayers though, because the risk of miscarriage is very high, truly very likely. We are going full tilt with complete joy until we have reason to be otherwise.

We know that this baby belongs first to God and we are so happy He is choosing to create this soul through us. Even though we may never see this baby's face on earth, we will see him someday in heaven.

the giver of life
we praise You and
glorify Your generosity
in the gift of this child
We ask You to strengthen us
as parents to do and accept
Your will for us and for this baby.

Good for you! Why is the risk of miscarriage so high?

Thank you all, we are thrilled! We will take as many prayers as we can.

Charlotte, my hormone levels are very low. Should find out tomorrow if they are doubling the way they should, please God.
