We are Expecting a baby BOY!! 24 weeks along!!

I just realized I had not made my official Blog Announcement that We are expecting our first child!!
I will be utilizing this blog now, for both business and baby!! :-)
We are currently 24 weeks pregnant with a due date of July 30th, 2012 (our two year wedding anniversary!!)
This pregnancy has been nothing short of a miracle in our eyes and a sign from God that he is in control!!

A little back story:
We had gone through two miscarriages in 2011. One in January and one in July, both at about 6 weeks. 
We were, needless to say, devastated. My husband Sean, however, kept me thinking positive, or at least tried to. He seemed to be as confident as one could be that we would go on to have a healthy and successful pregnancy. I, on the other hand, started to ask myself if having our own biological child was in God's plan for us. I wondered if maybe we were meant to adopt, after all, there are so many children out there in need of a healthy and happy home. I liked the idea of adopting, but couldn't let go of the desire I had to experience pregnancy and give birth to a baby that my husband and I made together. What a gift from God that would be!!

Well, in Nov. 2011, we found out we were pregnant again!! Praise God!! And guess what!!? My sister had just told me 3 weeks prior that she TOO was pregnant!! Talk about good timing!! Ok, life was good, but I couldn't escape the fear that this pregnancy would result as the last two had...talk about anxiety!!! At that point, I gave it to GOD, I began praying to him that he would wrap his arms around this little one he had blessed us with and keep him safe and healthy, that this pregnancy would be successful. I prayed like I had never prayed before, for both my sister and I and these two amazing blessings.

Well, here we are at 24 weeks pregnant and my sister, Angela, at 27 weeks pregnant, BOTH with baby BOYS!! Boy oh Boy!! ;-) There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for what he has done for us. I am truly in awe. My faith in God, that he is always there, in control and able to work miracles in our lives has been strengthened to a whole new level. I've always believed in prayer, but now I really belief in the POWER of prayer. I can't wait to meet this little miracle we have been blessed with. I look forward to teaching him about how GREAT our GOD is!! I also look forward to seeing this boy grow in Christ and be a blessing to others! I pray that God blesses all of you as he has us! Remember to always trust in him!!
