A New Year

Wow, what a wonderful Holiday season! It was quite busy and now I'm just trying to recuperate and get back into the swing of things as I'm sure you are.

So, I know many of you are wondering if we have any updates on the baby front and I thought it would be a good time for that. Phillip and I have decided we are not going to pursue fertility treatments. We've prayed and talked extensively about the possibilities out there for a couple in our situation and we feel this is the right decision for us. We feel that for a couple who suffers from some sort of infertility issue, treatments are a great option. Since neither of us suffers from medical problems, we think fertility treatments are futile. We definitely want to be parents sooner rather than later but only God knows what's in store for us. We will continue to live our lives in gratitude and service to our Lord. If he so chooses to bless us with our own children some day, it will truly be His work in our lives. If not, we are open to other possibilities such as adoption. These next few months will be crucial and we may have to make some quick decisions. We greatly need your prayers.

I'm especially struggling with how much time to devote to praying for this. I'm not obsessed with our getting pregnant so I don't pray every single hour of the day that God would grant us this blessing. I feel at peace and I'm in the waiting stage but sometimes I feel that I could be doing more. I know this could be my own guilt and sinful nature trying to stress me out but could it possibly be the Lord convicting me or nudging me to do more? What dilemmas . . . .

Regardless, we need your prayers and support. Thanks for reading ("listening"). Can't wait to see what the Lord's gonna do.
