Here is my first born, today is is birthday, he is 5 years old! He is such a blessing to me. God was so good to give him to me and on the same day I had experienced loss. One year before he was born, on July 13, 2003, I miscarried our first baby. It was so very devastating and a very dark time for me. When I became pregnant again 3 months later I was so happy but very scared. At some point in my pregnancy I realized his due date was one week after the date of my loss. I heard God tell me in my heart that this baby was going to come on July 13. Boog arrived on July 13, 2004, it was such a wonderful blessing from God to allow me to experience life and motherhood the very same day I had experienced loss.
I praise God for the blessings he has given me!
I am 35 weeks along, I am very ready for the next few weeks to go by. We have everything we need for the new baby's arrival and have already rearranged our living space and our bedroom to occupy the new addition.
Sorry I have been on such a long blogging break, I will hopefully get back into the swing after baby is here and we are settled.
