Baby Makes Eight!!

Our three teenagers are currently 13, 14, and 15. Boy did we get the comments back when they were little! Three perfect kids in a row. We told the Good Lord, "thanks, we are all set now."

In 2002 we decided that was not quite the right attitude, and ceased using birth control. The Good Lord was once again in complete control of our family size. And He told us to adopt. Amelia came home in 2003, Micah in 2005, Dante in 2006, and Sunny in 2009.

Seven years without birth control, but four more perfect kids.

And now, God in His infinite wisdom, (or is it God with His amazing sense of humor?), has blessed us with a pregnancy. We actually found out late October, I am now just over three months along and due July 3rd. Since I turned 40 in October, we wanted to make sure things were progressing smoothly before making our announcement.

So this time, the new kid won't be a goat. (See my September "kids" post) Although we do plan to introduce Gidget to her boyfriend soon and she should be due in July too.

God is good!
