Just stopping by quickly to make a very special announcement. An announcement that fills my heart with so much joy. An announcement I was, quite frankly, worried I’d never get to make: Mr. B and I are having another baby.
I have a lot more to say about finding out we get the pleasure of being parents again. This is a gift not everyone gets to have, and we do not take it for granted. While many people may have waited until 12 weeks or 14 weeks or 20 weeks or after the first ultrasound, we couldn’t do it. For a couple of reasons:
- Everyone trekked through the sadness with us, supporting us and encouraging us and holding us up. You all deserve to celebrate this news, too. You are family.
- If something bad is going to happen, it’s going to happen regardless of whether we tell you. And if the unthinkable happens, we’d surely rather have you all in our corner.
- We are going to need every ounce of support and prayer (or happy rainbow thoughts) we can get — the sooner, the better.
- We’re just too dang happy to keep a secret this big for much longer.
So, I will write more. There’s a lot to say. But for now, please know that we feel your love and support. And we are — we will always be — grateful for you.
