I’m PREGNANT! (re-announcement)

December 18th, 2010

With a paper pregnancy!!!

We got a positive on our adoption pregnancy test!

[Sorry if I nearly gave you a stroke!  Hehehe.]

While we are aware that there are NO guarantees, just as there are no guarantees with a biological pregnancy, we are celebrating, rejoicing, marveling, and thanking God for doing the impossible!

After writing our adoption update, I got some feedback that informed me that our announcement was so long, so subdued, and had so many unnecessary, cryptic, and confusing details, that the message did not get through!  Especially for folks who are busy with Christmas preparations!  So I re-wrote it here!

And I renew my invitation to those of you who know that you are our trusted friends.  You want more details?  I will LOVE giving them to you!

P. S.  I am also announcing a new Question-and-Answer Day here on Verity’s blog!  If there are questions you’ve wished you could ask us, please do, and if they are deemed appropriate, ahem, I will periodically do my best to address them!

Share it!

    Now that got my attention!! :) Congratulations!! I would love to hear more details but I don’t know if I count as a “close friend”. If not, I understand. I’ll eagerly look for the details that you are able to share.

    Congratulations!  It is so wonderful that this is happening for you all!  Adoption has been on my heart for awhile, but so far God hasn’t impressed it on dh at all.  Although, the other day, he did an ambulance call that involved an adopted boy who had only recently been adopted, and dh said that got him thinking about adoption.  So who knows what the future holds!?  I’m so happy for you and your family, congratulations!

    My heart is swelling with JOY for you!  I can remember that impossible-to-fully-describe feeling that I had.  The wonder.  The waiting.  The knowledge that there was a living, breathing soul on the earth who was waiting for US to come and get her!  It makes me tear up all over again.  I shared with my daughter about your plans and she is OVERJOYED.  She is 10 now and is so excited to hear of your love for the orphan.  God is so GOOD!
