Extreme Babysitting's done!! Today was Phase 2 and we were in Charlottesville bright and early this morning with Autumn and Donovan. Once again, God was ahead of us and already working......everything looked even better than we hoped and the transfer went without a hitch! We will keep you posted on the results!!
We have been so blessed by this couple. Their willingness and desire to "babysit" our child for the first nine months, leaves us stunned. Such a gracious and selfless act, wanting nothing in return other than to change our lives.....we are so thankful for the way God has brought them into our lives and are so excited to be on this journey together!

Here we go......

Well, it's time. After months of praying, planning, and paying (see what I did there??), it's here. The moment that 1 year ago was the absolute farthest thing from our minds. Something we never would have thought we'd even be considering, much less doing. But God has a different plan sometimes. And sometimes it's different, unconventional, "out-of-the-box", even crazy......but that's how He likes to do things sometimes. He's so much BIGGER than we think. Not just in size, strength, and wisdom.....but BIGGER in thought, and plan, and dream. He's got an enormously HUGER (I know that's not a word, but I was overusing "bigger") plan than we can even begin to see. Hindsight is always 20/20, and we may not even be able to see everything until we get to Heaven, but I know that when we get there, and we look down on our lives from His viewpoint, I think we're going to have an "ah-ha" moment. We're going to say " see what you were doing there…..." Because He's wiser, remember??

Sorry.....I got sidetracked. (Obviously MarySusan isn't writing this….:) Anyway, I was announcing something........oh yeah. It's time!!! Starting today, we will be going through the medical procedures we’ve been working towards and we would appreciate your prayers over the next few days! After next week, it's just like any other pregnancy....NORMAL…..and we should know soon if we're having a baby!!! Or two........or three.......or four.............we’ll see. :)

So please be praying with us that all goes smoothly for MarySusan and Autumn. We are very excited to see what God is going to do through all this, and check back for updates over the coming weeks!! :)
