BIG News

In case you've wondered where I've been...

It seems as if I've been riding in the back of a stuffy car on a winding road.  Nauseated.

Yep, I'm PREGNANT!!!!!

Anyone else totally surprised?  We are very thrilled.  After eight years of struggling with infertility, two miscarriages and failed adoptions our hearts are full of thanks for this baby in my belly.

Two weeks ago, after sitting through ten hours of foster-parenting training, I came home and took a positive pregnancy test.  Needless to say we didn't go back to the training.  I've not yet been to the doctor and so I don't know how far along, though I'm thinking about eight weeks.

Please pray for me, physically and mentally (not to give in to fear).  In the mean time, I'm laying low - doing only the essentials.
