Since I took a break I’ve been behind (way behind!) on my blog reading. I’m slowly getting caught up and there’s been plenty to catch up on.
I’ve found myself shedding tears of sorrow and joy while I’ve been catching up.
Please be praying for Susan Godfrey. She found out that the baby she is carrying (due September 23) has Potter’s Syndrome and will not live more than a few hours after it is born. The baby has no kidneys and this is the second child they have lost to Potter’s. I’m not sure if it is because our due dates are so close to each other or what, but every time I’ve thought of Susan and her baby since reading her blog yesterday I’ve started crying again for that precious baby. Susan has chosen to carry the baby to term rather than terminate the pregnancy. Please be praying for her, her husband and her other children during this time.
And I find myself with tears of joy for Kristen at Walking Circumspectly. After five years of infertility, she has amazingly found herself expecting a baby. They were scheduled to begin testing next month, but God graciously answered her prayers of conceiving without assistance. I am so very happy for Kristen and her husband.
On a related note, I’ve been working on a post about our experience with childlessness. I hope to post it sometime soon and hope it will be an encouragement to other women who are struggling in this area. (Now here: Our Experience With Childlessness)
