hope

I want to cushion what I'm about to say with love and compassion for those of you struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss. If you've been following this blog over the past months, you know that Brad and I understand your suffering because we're hurting in similar ways. Some people have taken extra care to "soften the blow" of their pregnancy announcements to us, which we will be forever grateful for. Others haven't, which has stung. I never want someone to hurt because of me.

So, keeping all of that in mind, let me deliver this news as gently as I can: Brad and I are expecting a baby in mid-September.

Please join us in praising God for answering prayers, and also in praying for others who are still longing for the opportunity to make their own special announcement.

Oh HAPPY day! Congrats to you and Brad! Best blog post I've read all year. No doubt. Ok, maybe it shares the title with ASP's for when they found out they found a birthmom and then when Miss O came home to Chicago. But either way, it's FAB FAB FABulous news. May the upcoming months be full of relaxing, preparing and enjoying this time with excitement and anticipation.
