 As we were worshiping during youth group last night, I sat amazed...
Just eight months prior in that very room, I fearfully confessed to one of my best friends that I was seven and a half weeks pregnant... but that things didn't look good. She cried with me, prayed with me. Over the next few weeks, I watched our baby grow, and watched the blood clot grow right along with it. I was put on bedrest, told that there was a 50/50 chance that I would lose the baby. 
But then one week, the blood clot was a little smaller, 
and then just like that- 
it was gone.
And now, here... amazingly, we have our sweet baby girl.
I'm amazed by the Lord's goodness to us, choosing to bless us again with another precious life.
My heart is overwhelmed with gratitude.

Nora James... you are such a gift. Such a sweet and miraculous little gift!
