i Holly...I just joined the Blog Frog Community or started one or something! I really have no idea what I'm doing! But I wanted to join in your discussion.
Faith and Grace
I think it was late spring/early summer when we found out I was pregnant for Faith and Grace. I went to the doctor to confirm my test. My mom was with me. She was so overjoyed at the thought of another grandbaby. I was very surprised! We went to Wendy's to celebrate!
The day we found out there were 2 babies and not just one, Tim and I both left the doctor's office wide-eyed with shock! My tiny 100 pound mom squealed and picked me up and twirled me around in her driveway.
We had been trying to conceive after the loss of our Faith and Grace. I took several tests to be sure. Tim and I were both relieved (we weren't sure if I would be able to have another baby after some of the complications.) and anxious...and excited...and a million other emotions. I remember feeling like and saying...I just wanted this next pregnancy (after Faith and Grace) behind me instead of in front of me. Meaning...I just want to fast forward to my child being with me and O.K. It didn't turn out that way...and, instead, I learned about cherishing each moment we're given and relying on God's sufficient grace in a way I never imagined. But, you already know about that.
It is hard to think back on those days of joy and innocence before we knew what was to come. Kind of like watching a movie that you've already seen before. The scenes when the people are so full of joy and know nothing of the difficulty about to befall them. I know that you are not in the place you expected to be, on this broken road. Sending love and prayers your way...as always...
