For my sweet friends and family who just don't understand WHY when we tell them we are pregnant with Baby #5 ~ yes, you're supposed to say congratulations....


trying to remain patient and loving,

THANK you, Shane!

You care too much about what *other people* think.
It's your baby and my grandbaby. The *important people* are thrilled, by another of God's great blessings to our family.
Who cares about people who just don't GET IT?
You are blessed, be happy.

Oh girl, do I ever understand what you are going through. I won't go into the litany of responses that we got for this one, but I will say that this pregnancy has been soundly ignored by one and all (except my parents and my bestest friends. It is so hard not to be hurt and angry. OK, hurt and *very* angry.

But, the more excited I get about this baby, the more sorry I feel for those who don't rejoice with us that God had blessed us!!! Wow! I mean according to His Word, we are experiencing one of the hugest blessings. Too bad for them. :p

Hugs and prayers!

Yes, Annemarie, IGNORED!

It's like they just don't want to even acknowledge the fact that we're pregnant. Even if they don't agree (for whatever reason), how can you just completely ignore this miracle?!? Just amazing...

Now, I'm only just a few weeks along. I've only really had ONE experience like this so far - but it was with a group of people that, well, let's just say they should KNOW BETTER!!!

At least I kinda dealt with this already so I'll be more prepared as I get further along. But knowing me, I'll probably just more frustrated. I'll need to do some serious praying or my big mouth will get me into some trouble. uh-oh.

Praise the Lord! A baby is one of God's greatest gifts to us--CONGRATULATIONS to your entire family. We'll keep everyone in prayer--including those who need it most in giving love to even the 5th baby--this baby is just as precious as each of his/her siblings!

I think it's awesome...Congratulations!!! In my opinion you should shoot for twelve;)

I know what you mean though...with each new child people start giving the weirdest looks.

Blessings, Danielle

Well I think it's fantastic!
I will remind you of my mother's response when we found out we were pregnant with Hadassah.....
"OH NO!"

Okay, see you soon and just be excited
