5 weeks!

five

Some know. Some don’t. But in 5 short weeks, my family will welcome another addition -the arrival of our baby girl Addison Lyric. This may not be as big a deal to you unless you realize the miracle that this is both in MY life as well as my wife. You see, just a few years ago, my wife was quite sick and was told by a physician in the city that it was inevitable that she HAD to have a hysterectomy and that she was would never have more children. Being that she at that point had already been a single mom for 10 years to her beautiful daughter Mahan, it was hard news to swallow but she was resolved to NOT have one, believing that she would one day have more children. I, on the other hand, always loved kids but knew that they were out of the question due to my choice of lifestyle prior to marriage. I was a sex-addict involved in homosexual immorality. (More on that in a later post). So children were not even an option in my world. But here we are now -almost 4 years later and 5 children later. Mahan, two miscarriages, Justice and Addison on the way. If you would have told me a few  years ago that this would be my reality I would have TOTALLY not believed you. But I couldn’t be happier than I am today. I love my family. But sometimes I wonder HOW WILL I EVER BE ABLE TO DO LIFE WITH ANOTHER BABY!!! My 2.5 year old STILL isn’t sleeping consistently through the night. But as we are 5 weeks away, I’m reminded that 5 is the number of grace. And we can DO THIS!! I cant wait to meet this precious baby girl and for the rest of the world to meet her as well!
