so instead i will just share it: our little ava is going to be a big sister.

yup. i am pregnant. we are overjoyed, thankful, and very nauseous over this exciting news.

if you read this blog than you know our story and to be able to share this news is nothing short of a miracle.

we got the go ahead from our doctor in march to start trying for a little baby and as of mother's day we are celebrating and praying for this little one inside me. please join us as we pray for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy birth come january.

i am thankful. i am thankful. i am thankful. i am also pretty sick...but God is good. wow. this is real. i still can't believe it.

thanks for celebrating alongside us no matter where you live.

  40. Congrats, Libby! Been following your journey and this is such good news! I still remember hearing those words after my husband had cancer at 28. We never expected to be able to have more kids on our own. And then...a miracle! I couldn't believe it was true at first. Our first miracle (before cancer) is five, our two post-cancer miracles are three and one year old now. God is good. Praying for health for both you and baby. And so thrilled for you, so very very thrilled.
