Jonathan and I are more than beside ourselves to finally announce something that we have been waiting and waiting and waiting for! We're expecting! Baby Slater is due to make his or her arrival late August 2013 and we couldn't be more excited/nervous/thrilled/blessed! Looking back on the past year filled with all the struggles and issues we had, its so amazing that we are finally to the point that we can feel a little relaxed and start to enjoy being parents-to-be! The most amazing thing about this is that we weren't really trying (necessarily); in fact I had an exam scheduled to start some genetic and anatomy testing to see if there was a reason we were getting pregnant and not staying pregnant. And more amazing than that? I actually ended up getting pregnant around the same time I got pregnant the first time last year, literally within a few days. It was a little scary nearing the dates when we lost the last one, but bypassing them and getting great reports at the doctor was amazing! The Lord has truly blessed us, and we know that this child is a gift from Him and we can't wait to experience being parents and raise our child to follow the Lord! I'll be writing more about this whole process but today I just am so glad I can finally announce and share our joy with the world! Baby Slater, we cannot wait to meet you!
