Tickled Pink by Answered Prayer

While I am not finished with my posts on affordable travel, I have to interrupt the series to let you know that I am tickled pink. My heart is overflowing with joy. We have prayed for seven years and our prayers have been answered.

Let me give you a little background.

Remember this chair that I covered for my sweet friend for her nursery.

And remember this dresser that I updated for her nursery. After several years of marriage and dealing with infertility, my friend decided to pursue adoption.  After being on an adoption waiting list for over two years, a sweet baby girl came through the foster care system to live in this nursery in October of 2014. Her adoption was final in January of 2015.

Remember this chair that I converted to a swivel rocker. Four months after baby #1 arrived from foster care, my sweet friend  became the proud mother of a newborn baby girl that was adopted in May of 2014. She happily had two girls under the age of two. But wait. There’s more. My sweet friend appeared to be going through a physical slump last summer. She was tired, sleepy, and had no appetite. She attributed it to adjusting to motherhood to the two babies. Not being able to snap out of it, she finally went to the doctor. I’m sure you have figured out the rest of the story by now. My precious friend was pregnant! By the grace of God, she delivered a healthy baby girl last week! She is now the proud mother of three girls under the age of three! Our many prayers for a baby have been answered. Please join me in praying for my sweet friend as she recovers from a  C-section and adjusts to a very busy life. We are praising God from whom all blessings flow!

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21

You will have to trust me when I say that they are all beautiful babies. To protect their privacy, I have not included photos.

Have a wonderful week as we welcome spring!
