Yesterday was a freeing day. A day I needed. A day that restored my soul.

Yesterday I found out a very special friend is pregnant with her second miracle.

What's the big deal you ask?

Every.single.announcement from 2006 until yesterday would result in a horrible immediate selfish cry to Jesus. The usual {selfish} questions "Why her? Why not me?" were not my first thought upon finding out. I would eventually come around (some announcements sooner than others) but would definitely have my little temper tantrum have you first. A side of me I am certainly not proud about which is why this is so big for me!

Yesterday was different.

"Thank you. Thank you Lord for this miracle baby."

That was my hearts initial response. Proof the good Lord is at work on my heart.

Now this does not mean I need to be "tested" and become bombarded with pregnancy announcements. :-)

In your journey to grow your family, how did you handle pregnancy/adoption announcements? Did it vary with how far Into the journey you were?

For all my fertile friends reading this, I may of been jealous of your pregnancy happening before me but boy am I thankful for your continued support while I still waited. <3 p="p">

Congratulations to your friend! I am so glad that it was not hard on you like previous times. I still find them difficult, but not as difficult as before we had our DS. I think they are still hard mostly in part due to our loss. I find myself very happy for them but very sad for myself remembering when I found out I was pregnant with our angel.

I am glad yesterday was a freeing day!

I'm so happy for you! That's an amazing place to be. I hope that one day I'll be there. I am very much still in a place where I generally (depending on the person)feel down and wish it was me instead. Congrats to both you and your friend! I think this great evidence to the fact that your prayerful decision is what God wanted for you and your family! That makes me smile.
