WE ARE PREGNANT!!!!!I am 13 weeks along and I've been really sick, so it feels like a LOT longer!!!! We are really excited!!! We found out we were pregnant 4 days before we had to give Nathan back to his parents and this pregnancy was COMPLETELY PREVENTED!!!!! So, no doubt in our minds that this was Heavenly Father's was of helping us through that transition.
I have been reluctant to share this news and there are good reasons. My blog is public (and I am going to keep it that way). I have shared it with my Facebook friends already because I have my FB locked up like Fort Knox and know that the people I don't want in, can't get in.
You see, when we got Nathan, we had the state and some family members accuse us of only wanting him to "replace" the miscarriage we had last fall. NOTHING will replace our own child. That was so offensive. Then those same family members took it a step further and to my face, compared me to the lady in the story of King Solomon in the Bible:
*There were 2 women that claimed they were a baby's mom. They took him to the King and he ordered that the baby be cut in half and each woman get half of the baby. Well, the real mom stepped up and told them to give the baby to the fake mom and that's how they knew who the real mom was.*
Precious, huh? Yes, my very own family was accusing me of being like THOSE women. I can't even tell me how hurtful that was for Randy and I. It's something I may never forgive, but I'm working on it. The level of betrayal was just shocking.
Anyhow, you can probably imagine why I haven't wanted to go public with this new and exiting news of ours. I know that those family members will probably find out that we are pregnant now and I anticipate that they will say that we only got pregnant to "replace" Nathan, so I have been gearing up for that. BRING IT!!!!!
I feel that I am rambling, but I had to explain some things before I could go on with future posts about the pregnancy. I pray that everyone can start to "play nice", but the reality is, that probably wont happen!!!!
So, here's to a Wednesday of not being sick (positive thinking, right?)!!!!
Thanks for your understanding and support!!!!
