We could not be happier to announce that we are adding another little one to our family September 2017!
I hope you all know that Jase and I have hard time even sharing the news. We aren’t sure what to say or how to say it. We want other people to know how excited we are, but do not want to seem insensitive. We do not want to be emotionless because that sends a weird message too, oh we aren’t excited that God is performing one of the biggest miracles of life in my belly?
With the great great joy of new LIFE, also comes a very real & tangible pain thinking of all those who are longing to grow their families, who are confused and searching for answers, who know that God has a plan for their family but are becoming very weary of their journey.
I have said and will continue to say, our journey pales in comparison to so many others, so many others that we love deeply.
Ask us about our miscarriage to this day and we will cry about it.
Ask me about walking into the operating room for my d&c and I promise you I can vividly recall all of the details. All of them.
Ask me about all the lies that Satan fed me during that season.
Ask me about crying randomly for weeks and months because the emotions were so raw.
Ask us about how God continues to use our story for me to love, comfort, & confide in other hurting women.
Ask us about how God used our miscarriage to remind us, in a very bold way, that He is on the throne and has the days numbered for every single person we love.
Ask us how God continues to use our miscarriage to make us release our grasp on Taves’s life a little more each day.
Ask us how God reveals himself to us each day through Taves – knowing that every sperm & egg create a new DNA. God knew that Taves’s DNA was perfect for us to parent here on Earth.
Our joy is deep & wide knowing that God has the perfect plan for our family. He knows the number of hairs on Taves’s head, he knows the number of days he will walk the Earth, and he knows the number of days that he will get to be a big brother. In that, we find unshakable peace.
Please join us in prayer as we prepare for this little miracle to join our family. We are so grateful to have you all on this journey with us and covet your prayers.
You will make a GREAT big brother, baby Taves!
