Hello online friends! We took nearly a week and unplugged from creating new blog posts! It was the longest break we have had since, well… this story we told you three-years ago!
For those of you that have been with us for that long, our sudden “no warning” break might have brought back memories of when we totally disappeared online for several months. We received hundreds of emails and comments from concerned readers asking why we had dropped off the face of the earth.
Well, this past week, we celebrated a beautiful event – the 3rd birthday of our miracle baby boy, Josiah! Even as I write this, this precious little boy is sitting on my lap telling me about how elephants eat watermelons and spiders in his very imaginative and creative 3-year old mind.
We have learned so many incredible things about this precious gift and he is the cutest, smartest, most creative, talkative, happy, “no-fears” 3 year old boy that I have ever met (of course I am not biased :)).
We have learned that when this spunky, fearless boy says to any of us….”watch this!” we all come running to stop him from whatever he is about to do!
But his “watch this” approach to life is truly reminiscent of his miracle birth story – that his life was hanging by a thread without us even knowing.
His story shows us the true hand of God in how this little life was spared and thrived since his birth. We thank our Lord and Savior every single day for him and the gift God has given us in all of our children. Our previous four birth stories are nothing short of a miracle as all life entering this world is truly a miracle, but as we state in one of the parts, we are sharing this in hopes of helping others with some of the issues I experienced during my pregnancy so that you can be aware of symptoms in your own pregnancies. Many similar stories haven’t had the same happy ending.
So join us in celebrating Josiah’s 3rd year of life and read up on the miracle birth of this little boy 3 years ago!
Here’s a link to all three parts to his birth story:
