From TWO to SIX

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

After a 15-month struggle with infertility, we found out we were pregnant the week of Thanksgiving. Two weeks later we received the surprise/shock of our lives during my first sonogram.

We are having four babies. Four little miracles.



Reid and I feel so humbled that the Lord chose to grow our family in this way. It is clear that this was orchestrated by HIS sovereign hand and we have felt an overwhelming sense of peace from the moment we heard the words, "There are four."

I'm excited to share more in the weeks to come. I want to be as honest as I can about our journey, the emotions we've processed/are processing through, etc.

God is writing an incredible story and we feel so very honored to be part of it.

Can't wait to hear the whole story. (P.S. I need to get you in touch with my friend Ashley who had spontaneous triplets when her firstborn was not even 2 yet. She seriously said it would have been easier to have 4 all the same age...I'm sure she could give you lots of advice and tips on surviving with multiples) :) Woo Hoo!! SO exciting!!!!!!!
