“So you’re telling me there’s a chance?” were the first words I thought to blurt out. The doctor found my awkward sense of humor lacking: “no- I’m telling you that it’s highly improbable that you’ll ever get pregnant apart from medical intervention.” Christin and I already knew the results before our follow-up visit with Reproductive Medical Associates, so we knew this meant NO BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN. What we did not expect was an invitation to join a nation wide study on in vitro fertilization with RMA covering the majority of costs. That significant “God moment” led to our two beautiful children, Jude and Wren…
Now over five years after that fateful meeting with a doctor, we received more unexpected news. Yes, you see an ultrasound picture of a healthy baby growing inside of Christin. He or she is around seven weeks old. We’d have greater statistical chances of winning the lottery, getting bitten by a shark, or being struck by lightning. Ironically, Christin and I were prayerfully discussing entering the foster-to-adopt world of VT. We had begun asking Jude and Wren whether they wanted a little brother or sister, so now they are thrilled to hear a baby is on the way.
As the four of us gathered in the hospital room last Friday to gaze at the ultrasound screen, we knew that God determined to bless us with a third child. We are surprised, excited, thankful, and blessed.
With God all things are possible!
