New surprises

I was due to have a foot surgery this week. I have had a burning pain in my foot and they going to do a surgery to help get rid of the pain. I also had another surgery set up, one to get my tubes tied. We had decided to risk was to high for me and the baby, and we did not want to have another miscarriage. Before my surgery I was required to take a pregnancy test. Well Friday afternoon we found out we were expecting. We were even trying to be very safe. I was totally shocked. God had other plan's. So far I have been throwing up everyday for 7 day's. I have been having a lot of tummy pain, which everyone seems' to say is good news!! I have an appointment to go to the Dr and then I will start the shot's in my tummy. This will help me and the baby from my blood clotting disorder. We are very happy about this baby, just a little shocked!!
The kid's are all very excited as well. The babies of course do not get it yet, but I think when the baby comes they will be very happy.
We had to put the adoption aside for the moment. They will not let me adopt at the beginning of this pregnancy. As soon as we get out of this scary stage we will start the process up again. We never found the child that we both agreed on, but we did decide NOT to adopt HIV kids.I love that people can do it, and we would. The reason we are not is because our family is NOT supportive of it at all. We just got tired of trying to explain it to everyone. There are so many other children out there as well. We just need to get through this pregnancy first.
School is close to starting. I have all but 1 child going to school this yr. I'm so afraid to send my little Emma to kinder because I'm afraid she will get so sad. For me that really bothers me. I'm praying she does well and makes friends fast. If not I do not mind pulling her out and homeschooling her!!
That's all I have for now. Trying to write for often than normal!! Have a great day!!


  1. I am praying that you can start the shots soon so that hopefully you can carry this baby to full term. As you have said before it is in God's hands and if this is his will then he will help this baby survive. If it is not want he has planned then there is a reason for this and maybe that is to tell you it is not the right time to adopt. Unfortunately all anyone can do is guess at this point. However, everything happens for a reason!
    I just hope for your sake that you can carry this baby. You really do deserve this after all you have been through with so many miscarriages. I cannot imagine how hard that has been on you, but yet you bounced back so well. You really are an inspiration to some of us with your courage and so much love for kids in general, and all of us blog friends.

    After you have this baby, maybe you can have your tubes tied if that is what you want.

    I went back and saw the pictures of your house. Can you tell us more about it. Like how big it is and how many bedrooms and stuff like that. Do the babies all share a room? I think the front out side of it looks really pretty and BIG. I am glad that you found one you like.
    I just like to hear about stuff like that and love to see the rooms if you feel like sharing.
    I think it is great that you guys got one with a pool so the kids can have lots of fun in it. Especially this year since it is so HOT!!

    So which child will still be home with you when school starts? Hopefully Emma will do okay after a few days of school. She really will have a lot of fun after she gets to know the teacher and make some friends.

    Keep us posted on how you are doing. When is your Drs appt? Please let us know what he/she says?

    Will be praying for you.


  2. Leah,

    You have not posted in over a month now so I was just wondering how things are going.

    Can you please post a little update and let your blog friends know how YOU and the rest of guys are doing?
    How did Emma do with school? I bet by now she probably is loving it.
