"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born." Isaiah 66:9

Monday, June 28, 2010


Our birthmother will go into the hospital and be induced on Thursday morning. Sweet baby Cala will be here before we know it!

I feel overwhelmed, to know that my life will be changing so much what seems like overnight! I know that we have been prepping and getting ready, but today there are no children in my house and as of Thursday, I will be a mom--finally!!!

With that being said, I know that this situation is bringing my family much joy and excitement, but it will be a loss for another family. Please pray for them as they endure this great loss. Pray for peace, for comfort, and for healing, which I know will take time and never fully occur.

This has been a bumpy ride, and much harder than I think I anticipated. There are just things that you can't anticipate, and while I love surprises in gift form, I do not like surprises in my personal life. So, it has been hard, but completely worth it the whole way. Continue to pray for our birthmother as she makes this difficult decision and transition.

Coming soon...Cala Fay Troxclair!!!

God is going to use you and your precious spirit to bless so many people (Miss Cala especially) through this amazing story of heartache and redemption! You, Sean, Cala and BabyMama are all in my prayers this week! Love ya!

  2. Yayyyyy! I cannot believe it is already time for her to enter this world. I will be praying for your family as well as the birth mom's family.
