Oh, my goodness, how good it feels to write those words. I’ve dreamt of this post for years and now we get to finally share news and celebrate with all of you. We are having a baby, finally – early December, to be exact. If you’ve followed our journey for a while, you’ve known that our path to this point has been riddled with loss, pain, uncertainty, fear, and faith. Over the last two and a half years, we’ve gotten pregnant twice and lost both babies to missed miscarriages that left us heartbroken. Well, we’ve been keeping a secret (and we’re really bad secret-keepers) and now we get to share it with you.
Before we share about this pregnancy, I want to first address a few things: I want to recognize all of the women and couples out there who are yearning for a baby, who have that ache in their lives, who are waiting for their time, your time is coming. While I know these words may fall on deaf ears, walking the road we’ve walked has taught me so much empathy and compassion for the people fighting to start their family. So many sisters who are struggling took me in with open arms, helped me grieve, talked me through those pits, and gave me hope. You are my heroes, you are warriors, there IS a plan for you. We hope that this announcement gives you hope and strengthens your faith, that it doesn’t add to your pain.
While our journey is taking a turn, one so many of you have prayed over us for the last two and a half years to come, we want everyone to know that this baby does not replace the two that we have lost, but it proves God’s faithfulness, this is our redemption song. We are super excited to share this journey with you, to walk with you through this, and we couldn’t be more thankful to get to share the news with those of you who have been praying, waiting, and hoping for us. This baby is already so loved and now it’s time to celebrate!
We wanted to make sure to share the FULL story, our story of loss and redemption, of fear and faith and we’re in love with this video that gives you a deeper glimpse into our journey! Hit play below!
