New arrival!

Post by ryland » Mon Jul 23, 2018 4:40 pm

My wife and I are expecting our third! My avatar is a tattoo I had designed after my wife had a miscarriage last year. We're praying I'll get to add another bird to the tree.

She's just now in the second trimester and everyone is healthy!

After the miscarriage we thought we were done with that season of our lives. We were considering adoption. In January my wife had a dream...a voice spoke to her and said three times, "If you take care of her, I'll give her to you." Then a person showed up with a little girl and told my wife, "Her name is Isabelle." Then she woke up. She started checking out adoption boards for girls named Isabelle. She never told me about her dream until three months later. I told her I didn't want to be like Sarah or Zechariah and prayed to God that I was willing. Soon after this we found out she was pregnant.

We find out this week if it's a girl or boy, but if it's a girl we are naming her Isabelle! We are thrilled with the new life.

Prayers and congratulations, we also had a miscarriage a little over a year ago, but the Lord was faithful and blessed us with a second girl shortly after. It is so difficult, we will never know why God chose to take Elijah away from us, but we are so glad he has given us Ellie and our firstborn Hattie, I pray the same for you and your family.
