Big News!

I can't seem to find the right words for this post, so I'll just get to the point. Imagine my surprise a few weeks ago when on a day like any other day, this popped up. No drugs, no doctors, no planning....just the miraculous hand of God blessing us in a mighty way at the time we least expected.

I didn't believe it, but another 23 or so tests said the same thing, so I realized this was really happening. I can't put into words the feelings....shocked, excited, scared, saddened for my friends who have never had this either. (This was my first positive pregnancy test.) I am overjoyed and humbled at God's amazing blessings!

I am just about 9 weeks along and Baby Martin is expected to make his debut on May 16, 2010. We had our first ultrasound yesterday...here's our little kidney bean. :)

I will share all the details soon - what prompted me to even take a pg test, how I told Patrick, and what this means on the adoption front. I am so behind on everything after being out from work for so long, and am just busy in general, so don't have time to go into all that right now. I did want to go ahead and share the news here and will go into more details when I have the time - which I promise will be soon! We serve an amazing God! :)

"For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37
