For This Child I Prayed

The verse above Caroline's crib isn't just a sweet verse for a child's room. To us it was a reality- first we dealt with infertility for months on end- 15 to be exact. Countless Dr's appointments, special medications, tests, lab work, and too many negative pregnancy tests to count. Kind of takes the romance out of baby making. And then, that magical day- August 19th, we finally got that positive! After all those months, all that heartache, a baby was growing!

Several months later, we learned (by God's grace), of a blood disorder on my end, one that could cause our baby to die. So I began daily injections, in hopes that it would sustain this precious life. So we really, really prayed for this sweet child. And we are so very thankful that He chose to grant us what we asked of Him. Soli Deo Gloria!
