Prayers are Heard and Answered

When Kevin and I talked about having a third child I knew it was something we both wanted; however, I was scared to use fertility meds again. I had used fertility meds twice before. It gave us two beautiful girls. But, around the same time our second daughter was born - so were the McCaughey septuplets. (The McCaughey's had one baby the first time - then they had 7!) I did want another baby - I just didn't think I could handle being pregnant with two or even more babies at the same time. The "what ifs" were a little too scary for me.

I hoped that somehow I'd be able to get pregnant without fertility meds. Six years later it hadn't happened. I felt very blessed to have my wonderful daughters. I expected our family was probably complete; but, there was one last thing I had to do...

In the middle of the day, when I was alone, I knelt beside my bed and I said a prayer, the most heart felt of my life. I explained my situation to Father in Heaven, telling him I was afraid and I didn't feel like I could use the fertility meds again.  I asked sincerely, "If it be Thy will, Kevin and I would like to have another child."

A couple of months later, shortly after Christmas, Kevin and I discovered that we had been given an additional unexpected gift that year. 

Sept2When he was born, we named him Nicholas, after St. Nicholas. Because he was our miracle - the best Christmas present ever.

I am grateful for the "big miracles" in my life that help me remember to look at the many smaller blessings - the ones that remind me, each day, that God is mindful of us. He knows us, He loves us, and He answers our prayers.

What a blessing! Not just your precious Cole, but to learn sometimes the last place we go, should be the first...to our knees...to tell Him what's on our hearts...that He already knows...and trust Him with the results...a precious child...and be grateful for all things big and small...for He hears and answers prayer. Thanks for the reminder!
