Thank you…


Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.

Two days after we made our pregnancy announcement, we were headed off to a marriage retreat and away for almost a week.  I have finally had a chance to respond to all of your comments. I read every comment and am trying to respond to each and every one of you.

We treasure where we are right now and are who we are today because of what we have walked through, and 2) for those of you may have experienced what we have gone through, we want to let you know that you’re not alone, and that there is hope regardless of your circumstances.
