I have been a pretty lazy blogger the past little while. I apologoze. I have had other things on my mind. For the past month, I have kept a secret... well, some of you know about it. For my own reasons, I needed to do some things before saying much about it. Well, today I feel as if I am in need of prayers.
Tomorrow we go in for an ultrasound because I am about 10 weeks pregnant...I am scared. I am scared that they won't find a heartbeat, that there will be something wrong. We have just gone through so much in the past year and I really don't know how much more I can handle. I have been so emotion these past few months. One of the hardest things is that the baby is due 3 days after Olivia's birthday...
It was a surprise pregnancy. I cried when I found out...it was a total shock. I have faith that Heavenly Father knows what he is doing and he knows me enough to know what i can handle...but this is really, really hard.
Matt and I would really, really appreciate prayers, even if they are just for our comfort. We have such amazing friends and family who have been through so much with us...I thank you!

Oh Arah, I can only imagine your anxiety and fears, but in spite of that I still can't help saying CONGRATULATIONS! I'm so excited for you and WILL keep you in ALL our prayers. I'm sure this pregnancy will be an emotional roller-coaster for you, but it will be such a blessing to all of you as you grow through life's experiences together.

Wow! I am going to add my congrats as well, and also say that we will be praying for you too. I know what you mean about surprise pregancies. My situation is not totally like yours but finding out I was finally pregnant after trying for 8 years and that my baby is due in August of 2008 the same month that the last foster to adopt baby was born and placed with us last year, and we lost him, I was pretty shook up too when they told me my due date. Just hold on to what you said about Heaven Father knowing what He is doing and He knows how much you can handle. He is with you even now.
