After YEARS of heartache, struggles and losses, we are thrilled to announce (and a bit scared as my heart is pounding typing this post as I don’t want to jinx this) that we are expecting a new addition to our family! I am almost thru my first trimester! I wanted to keep it quiet as long as I could and keep my heart guarded…. But it is hard to not be attached now after seeing my little one moving all around on the ultrasound! We are so excited about this new journey God has blessed us with.
