Baby #7 (And What This Means For Our Foster Journey)

So, I am pregnant! No one was really that surprised, right?? This could not be any sweeter of a surprise than it is. God is so gracious, and we are really excited :).

I am,

almost 10 weeks...

due in January...



then sick some more.

But oh am I thankful.

I have had a pretty rocky first trimester with bad sickness and some spotting episodes - which is always scary. But my levels are fabulous and the ultrasound shows ONE strong little heartbeat!

Such grace!

I am so thankful for your encouraging words and excitement. We are excited for this little one to join our family!

So what does this mean for our foster care situation? Nothing, really.

We are still moving forward with God's calling for our family and with our little C & A. Our plan is the same, to love them and be their voice. We still don't know anything new about the whole relative situation. We are still waiting on the courts and in the same "take it one day at a time" mode.

So basically everything is pretty much the same. Only now I'm growing a sweet little love, and I'm just a tad more sleepy and pukey (Tad = A lot).

So that's that. We are so thankful for this new life. And the kids are SO thrilled! They are split down the middle - half want a little sister, and half want a little brother :).

Congratulations to you and your family Kate!!! How exciting!! I think the more kiddos you have the more excitement in the house as they all get excited too! :-)

We're expecting also and due in January! We don't know yet if there is one or more, but after you've had twins, you always wonder!

Sorry that you have been sick...I can completely sympathize since I am in survival mode here too. Praying that you feel better very soon!
