I wrote this the day we found out we were pregnant with the intention of writing several notes that we would one day give to our child...
Two weeks ago I got up and got ready to leave for the airport for a missions trip to France. I had a feeling though and wanted to know before we left so I took a test – positive!!! So I took another – positive!!! And yes, I took another! – POSITIVE!!! I was so excited I could hardly believe it! Your daddy and I have been praying for you and even struggled with doubt as to whether it would happen or not. I always knew you would come at the right time, but sometimes it was hard waiting.
The whole time we were in France I was excited and a little anxious. Though I had been looking forward to that trip for so very long, I found myself anxious to go home so I could go to the Dr and confirm everything as well as start doing whatever I needed to do!
We flew home yesterday and didn’t get home till after midnight, but though I was tired I got up this morning and went to the Dr.’s office. They confirmed that I was indeed pregnant with you! Ahhh!!! I still can hardly believe it. I’ve been praying and praying, and now that it’s happening – I continue to pray!
First I thank God for giving us you! Secondly I pray that you will grow inside of me in good health and exactly how God wants you to grow. I pray that you will stay inside me as long as you are supposed to and that when you come into this world it will be safely… and quickly! Haha J
Then I pray that as you grow as a little boy or girl that God will keep you safe and that He will give your dad and I wisdom as we make decisions and strive to teach you the way to go. I pray that you will grow not only in physical health, but spiritual. I pray that you will come to know God and His love and will accept His forgiveness of sins. I pray that you will believe in His son Jesus Christ and will except Him as your Savior and Lord. I pray that you will grow in faith and will become a light for him to the whole world. I pray that God will lead you to the right spouse and job and that whatever you do and wherever you go, you will be happy and will be a soldier for God’s kingdom.
I can’t wait to find out when you are due. It will be a while now before we know more, but know that I’m excited and that I and your dad love you very much already!
