Several posts ago I shared our exciting baby news...Like I said, we are over the moon excited. After our announcement we have been met with negativity by certain people...comments like having another baby is not a good idea and irresponsible. It is sad to hear those comments...especially when they come from people who should know better.
Yes, I have been put on bedrest with both Elsie and James due to pre-term labor. In the end I carried both babies full term...they were born with no complications what so ever. My health was never at risk, nor is it with this pregnancy.
Not for one second do we think having another baby is taking too much of a risk. God is in control...we know this and accept this. We pray for God's protection over this little one, just as we say daily prayers for the protection of the rest of our family. Jon and I both believe in living life to the fullest and simply having faith in God! We know unfortunate things can happen...we are not naive, but we choose to not live in the fear of the unknown. Simple everyday tasks such as driving a car or crossing a street is dangerous also, should we then stop any activity that may be regarded as too dangerous? Everyone faces challenges in life. How you deal with those life challenges is what really matters.
Bottom line is whether we choose to have no more or 5 more Children, this is Our Decision...we are the authors of our own life! Don't try to knock people down because you are afraid of living and trusting God. I have a tendency to think of the people not trusing in God or their own hearts are the irresponsible ones. They are the ones missing out on the great joy and journey of life.
We will continue to be over the moon excited no matter what kind of rude and unfeeling comments are thrown our way. You cannot squelch true happiness and joy...
