we all have expectations.
we expect that we’ll meet the perfect man, fall in love, get married, and have babies.
ok, not all of us, but most of us, right?
but what if that desire to have babies just doesn’t come?
or it comes a lot later than you “expected”?
my sister (remember from a wiww post?) and her boyfriend took a bit of time before they decided to try to have kids.
as jennifer put it, “the so-called “biological clock” did not start to tick until just a few years ago, about age 36 for me. even then, it was a very quiet, faint tick.”
so they decided to “try”.
“expected” it to work, since they had already been checked to see if everything was in working order.
but it didn’t.
they are also avid travelers, so living vicariously through them is really fun, too!
since they live in london, they have the NHS and have been very pleased with it.
so many couples struggle through this process, and i think can find comfort in others’ stories.
they can find comfort in other couple’s successes.
in jennifer and charles’ success.
they are now “expecting”!
i don’t know if i have been more proud to say, “i am going to be an aunt!”, even if it is for the 15th time!
so head over, congratulate her, pray for her, follow her through this amazing process.
and i couldn’t help it:
i had to snag this little cutie at the creative connection last week for the babe!
now i just have to work on sean – i’m hoping to go over to london with my mom for the birth!
i think i’ll need my own set of prayers for that to happen!
