A little news



Well...here goes
I should just cut to the chase, but first I would like to say that I feel very inadequate and have overwhelming feelings of guilt when I think of those who struggle to have children or those who've had difficulties doing so.

Dean and I have felt compelled for some time now to have another baby.

I will quote from an e-mail I recently sent Dean's family regarding the news:

"Some of you know already...so let's just make it official.
We are expecting a baby. Due at the end of April.
All is well and we are very excited.
We have asked ourselves...
who are we to think its okay to bring seven persons into this crazy world?
You are probably asking the same thing.
These sort of questions run through our thoughts often.
Someday we will know all the answers.
But for now we are just feeling happy and blessed.
And besides...only five more to go."

All our love - Dean - Hil and kids.

Yea! I told Kevin on Sunday that I thought you were pregnant. Don't know why I thought that, but now I know. That's great, hope you feel okay.

I'm glad you sent Dean's family an e-mail. Wait I guess you don't consider us family, we didn't get the e-mail. Congratulations. I'm glad it's you.

Congratulations! I got my bump band at motherhood in the mall. It really is wonderful! I haven't needed to buy any new pants or skirts.
Where in England did your husband serve? I can give you the recipe for the trifle if you like? it's really not that difficult. Looks more advanced than it really is ;)

Don't worry if anyone will question your decision. The Lord won't and that's all that matters.

I meant "hear". I was typing too fast :)

Allyson said...

Remeber that "talk" we had a few months ago? Well I agree with Saffron Grass. If you were meant to have another, then God would make it be so. You guys are such wonderful parents I'm sure he would send you 10 more.

CONGRATS!! You are such an awesome mom and will do just fine with 7. I wondered if you were pregnant after our phone conversation after I had Brielle. We are blessed to be able to have children so easily:) Let me know if you need anything. How many grandkids does this make for Deans mom?
