I Have Wonderful News!!!

I wanted to wait until we had "official" confirmation before I said anything. Plus I wanted to give Jessica opportunity to share the news before I did. I didn't want to steal her thunder so-to-speak.

Ronnie and Jessica are expecting another baby!!! As some of you may remember....they miscarried their first baby on Easter Sunday. They have been praying for and trying for another baby since she healed from that. Ronnie called me on Saturday and told me that she had tested positive for pregnancy with a home test. She took two tests and both were positive. So we knew she was expecting...but I wanted to give her time to go to the doctor and get the official confirmation and a due date before I posted about it.

She went to the doctor this morning and it was confirmed. They are expecting a baby that is due on May 29, 2009. Amen!!! We praise the Lord for this opportunity He is giving them. She says she feels much differently this time. She says each of her symptoms are normal and things are much different than last time. She has peace in her heart that all is going to be well this time. Ronnie is trying to give it time before he feels confident I think. He wants her to get past these next couple of weeks before he lets it sink in. I can't say that I blame him.

They are very excited though and so are all the rest of the family. I'm going to be a Nana again!!! Yes...I say again!! I was a Nana the first time they were expecting even though that baby is in Heaven with Jesus. I don't care how far along she was the first time...there was a baby in her womb. We will all see that baby when we get to Heaven. We do look forward to getting to hold this one though.

Please pray for them. They are seeing answers to prayer already concerning this pregnancy. Financially things are being met and physically things are being taken care of with Jessica. I'm just so proud for both of them!!!

To keep up with her pregnancy you can go to her blog and read her updates.

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Dear Sis. Julie, congratulations on your new Grandbaby. We have just had our fifth great Grandbaby. She is a special miracle. They lost three before Alisa Grace came for us to hold. We have not been able to hold her yet , she just weighs 4 pounds and 12 ounzes and has to be away from people for another week. We are so thankful. She was born the day hurricane IKE hit our area. Heather and baby had to be taken to a larger city away from Galveston where she had the baby a few hours prior. God took very good care of them and us and I just thank God from the bottom of my heart.

I look forward to the day, you come and say your new grandbaby is here for you to hold. We both have Grandchildren we will see in heaven. What a day that will be!!! Have a good day. connie
