A Surprise Thanksgiving Letter 2016

Yes, I have one more letter to write this year for Thanksgiving!!!

(If you missed out and would like to read the first few letters, you can read the letter to Bennett, Parker, Elliot, and Andrew here.)

Dear tiny baby growing inside of me,

I am so thankful for you. You are such a blessing to myself and your daddy and your brothers! If you are a girl, you are going to have the best big defenders by your side, if you are a boy, you are going to grow up with the best friend brothers ever!

Although there are those that are not excited for us or you because of our financial situation, your daddy and I know so well what an act of God you are. You are so clearly in God's plan for us to grow our family with - there is no doubt in my mind.

You are so loved, so cherished and we cannot wait until June to meet you!

There has been a request for you to come on the 7th, please consider this. :)

The story of how you come along is a sweet one...Daddy had said we were having no more babies but I just wasn't sure yet and I prayed that his heart would change. I thought that I might have been pregnant at one point and I told your daddy and he became excited for another baby. 

So we discussed it after finding out I wasn't and we both agreed that God did want us to add another and just like that, you came along.

Our vision for you is to grow into a child founded on the Word of God knowing the truth and standing during the hard times for Christ.

You will join our little brood of strong headed, ministry minded boys. What pride it brings to Daddy and I that our little ones are so focused on living for Jesus.

I can't wait for you to join the party!

This is your life verse, the verses that you were founded upon:

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
    the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
    are the children of one's youth.
Blessed is the man
    who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
    when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3-5

We await you excitedly, little one!
