Baby!
« on: August 24, 2012, 08:54:38 PM »
My husband and I have recently been surprised (!!!) with the good news that we are expecting our second child! God willing, we'll welcome our new addition at the end of April. It's not something we were planning, but God seems to have other plans.  ;)

If you could spare a prayer for a healthy pregnancy as well as a safe, complication-free delivery at the end, I would truly appreciate it. We had some unforeseen complications with my son's delivery, and while I'm trusting God for His protection, it's hard not to be anxious sometimes.

Thanks guys!  :)

Through the intercessions of the Theotokos may the LORD grant a safe, healthy pregnancy, and a complications-free delivery.  And may the child have the same wit as his/her Mom.  The Mom needs a challenge.  ;)

How old is your son? Now he will have a playmate. :)

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
