We're PREGNANT!!! We found out Monday night. I was in such disbelief I took 3 tests in a 5 minute span. We are thrilled and at times speechless. My obgyn is out of town for a couple weeks so I went to my general practicioner to get the blood work done. She knows our history and said, "couples in your situation shouldn't tell anyone until you've made it past the first trimester." She is only wanting to protect us but this last year and half have given us much perspective on children and 'our situation.' We don't know what the future holds but the Lord does and we rest in Him. Our desire is to celebrate this life that the Lord has entrusted us with, no matter how long or short that may be.

We had started down the adoption road and were excited about the possibilites that it could bring. We are still going to learn as much as we can about adoption so we can hopefully use that information in the future.

I'll keep you all posted on my progress. For now, we would appricate your prayers. Our desire is to be able to hold a baby in 36 weeks but we desire even more to have the children that the Lord wants us to have. We are both overjoyed and will cherish all the time we have.
