It's Gonna Be Okay Child; It's Gonna Be Okay

As I’m writing this, I’m comfy in my bed. I had another post started and fully intended on sharing it with you guys tomorrow. However, what I’m about to tell you, is much more important. What I’m about to share, is nothing short of a miracle.  What I’m about to share with you, is one more experience to add to my testimony for Christ.
Ordinarily, I wouldn’t share experiences like this with the world. What I experienced was extremely personal. It was something that caused me to sit and ponder if my experience had been real or if it was all a dream. But if you’ve been following and reading my posts, you know that over the course of the past year, my faith in Christ has been pushed to the limits and has been proven through and through. And now, I have just one more story to share as part of my testimony. What I experienced was no doubt real and it was a message directed specifically for me.
The past few months have been HARD. We have faced struggle after struggle all the while witnessing mi…

A year ago today...

Let's travel back in time to one year ago today, July 22, 2013 - things were SO much different!

As I'm typing this, four little babies are sitting in the living room mostly jabbering but one is fussing because he thinks he should always be held. I can't help but think about where I was one year ago today.

Today is the one year anniversary of when this whole journey began. Adam and I went in early on the morning of July 22, 2013 to begin the procedure that we would soon find out would change our lives forever (times four). 

I can remember the day like it was yesterday. The best way to describe my feelings were: fear. But my fear that day was nothing like the fear I face now. After ten years of struggling with PCOS, I didn't know if I'd ever fulfill my dream of being a Mom. We prayed so much that day that God would hear my plea and that He'd give us A baby. He sure answered that prayer in a BIG way!  

I have learned in the past year never to underestimate just what G…

When You Can't Count on Family, Where Do You Turn?

When you can't count on your family, where do you turn? The answer? To God, and in turn to amazing community and friends who share Christlike love.

When we found out that we were expecting quadruplets, as you can imagine, our lives were turned upside down. On the day we left the clinic after hearing the news, Adam and I sat in the car in the parking lot of the doctor's office, held hands, and just stared straight ahead. I'll never forget Adam asking me "What do we do now"? My answer "we better both get to work because we're going to need our jobs more than ever now"! We did just that! Although, I'll admit, I didn't get a lot of work done that day.

Soon after, we began sharing the news with our families. We knew we were going to need a lot of help during this sudden change in our lives and felt like the people we could count on the most were our families. We began making plans. Let me just say that we both have the most amazing, supportive pare…

Where I've Been...

It's been a while since I've been able to post an update. My world has been turned upside down recently and if I'm completely honest, there are days where I am struggling to keep my head above water.

When we found out we were pregnant with quads, we knew that our world was going to change. We just quite didn't know how much. Boy were we in for a ride. Even the plans we made while I was pregnant, somehow, have all turned pretty much upside down. It seems like nearly every plan we made faced challenges, albeit some larger than others. Except for our commitment to keeping God in our lives and our children's lives, it seems that somehow, every plan we made, was derailed. Fortunately for us, we did keep God by our side and he's been right here helping us through every challenge, decision, and change we've had to make. He's always provided for us; often, at the very last minute, but He's always seen that we are taken care of. 

On the day the babies were bor…
