We are having a….

No words can even begin to describe the joy I have experienced since finding out we were having a precious little girl.  I would have been so happy either way, but in my heart of hearts I was so hoping this little one would be a girl.  I could hardly sleep the night of our gender reveal party, after we found out.  My heart experienced true love all over again and I was reminded of the way I felt about my husband after meeting him.  Giddy with excitement, and a heart overflowing with joy and love…a girl.  A precious, tender little treasure.  There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank my God and King for the gift of being pregnant.  It will never be something I take for granted.  Standing before our family and friends, just as we were about to cut the cake and discover the gender of our baby, we took a few moments to stop and thank our friends and family who have walked a very difficult and long road with us.  A road fraught with hardship, broken dreams, and feelings of failure.  A road that has since been redeemed and made new.  A road we will never forget and that forged a stronger marriage, a deeper faith, and a greater appreciation for the gift that giving life really is.

Team BOY and Team GIRL…a great way to document who thought we were having which gender!

And a few more pictures of the actual reveal party of our party…BEST party EVER!!!!

We are soooo excited to meet you sweet baby girl!
