I can hardly believe how the years have flown by. Noah will be 4 years old in a couple of months. Life has changed in the most unimaginable and incredible ways.
We’ve struggled. We’ve thrived. We’ve loved through it all.
Now, we are facing beginning this journey again. It seems, all at once, daunting and exciting. The thought of all the appointments…all the injections…all the bills…all the nerves…all the stress…it is scary.
the possibility of another pregnancy…watching my belly grow…feeling a little one moving inside…holding and nursing another precious baby…WHEW…I would do it all over a thousand times.
This time, though, we’ll need help.
Not that long ago, I made the decision to follow where God was leading me and left my career treating cancer patients to go into full-time children’s ministry…cutting my income in half. I knew, in making that choice, that affording IVF on our own was going to be nearly impossible. I also fully believed that God would provide a way if this did, indeed, fit into His plan for our lives. Just last night, after a long discussion with my husband about adding to our family, I spent even more time talking to my God…thanking Him for the blessings I already have and asking Him to make a way for us to have another child. I never would have created this fund before this morning…before I woke up and heard His whisper…telling me to step out…reminding me that the people we love and who love us may want to help if we were brave enough to ask. This isn’t an easy thing for me to do. It goes against everything in me…asking for help in this way. It hurts my pride, but God is teaching me that there is no place for that kind of pride in the midst of the miraculous.
So, I’m trying to, once again, follow where He leads. Being a mother has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, and Noah’s little life is nothing less than a miracle. We’re asking you to help us create another little miracle. My arms and heart are aching for another sweet baby…a house full, if I’m being honest! Help us give Noah a brother or sister…help us add to our family. To explain how grateful we would be is impossible. Our son is our whole world, and another little one would be a blessing beyond words.
