Well here we are again... another year coming to a close, this year has been an exciting one to say the least, lets take a look back.
Last Christmas we were still in a state of mourning, we were facing a reality that we may never have children of our own and mourning the loss of our 3 embryos who went home to Jesus in September. It was not the best Christmas that is for sure. With the new year came peace and understanding and a challenge from our pastor, a challenge to pray specifically for God's will in our lives and what we can do to for His kingdom. So we started our year, praying specifically and thanking God for the many blessings we had. We were discussing the possibility of adoption when the "impossible" happened... we were pregnant!! Nothing is impossible with God on your side! February 21st was the day, I'll remember it forever... (read about it here) Everyday I wake up next to this miracle child I still can't believe he's mine, I carried him for almost 9 months and gave birth to him... we serve an awesomely amazing God and I'm reminded of that everyday... everyday when I get to look at this face...
After taking the test in February the rest of the year was kind of a blur, we had the gender reveal party in June, We were completely overwhelmed at how many of our family and friends came out to support us and find out what we were having! July was bible school and August was uneventful. September we had our showers, the last one was September 27th, we were ready now all we needed to do was wait... wait another month for our miracle to arrive, little did we know he was coming sooner than we expected. (birth story)
Now 2014 is coming to an end, I've had 11 glorious weeks with this precious boy and soon I'll have to return to work, I'm not too worried about Sawyer though he'll be in good hands! I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store, Merry Christmas friends and a very Happy New Year!
Chance, Ashley, & Sawyer
