Thank you so much for the comments, e-mails, facebook messages and prayers.
Mr. Free and I have truly felt the power of prayer.
We have been so blessed by the support we have received from so many people.
An incredibly thoughtful co-worker surprised me with these Wall Words this past week. She thought they were just the message we needed, and I couldn't agree more.
Mr. Free hung it up on our bedroom so that this message of hope will be the last thing we see at night and the first thing we see when we wake up in the morning!
Mr. Free and I will be meeting with a Fertility Specialist tomorrow to begin testing and hopefully diagnosing a problem that has lead to our miscarriages.
I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared and nervous for what could lie ahead.
As weird as it is, I am also strangely excited.
Mr. Free and I have always felt called to be parents.
We had always had interest in both biological and adopted children.
At this point, we are unsure of which way God is leading us, or whether it will be both!
We are just praying for very clear direction.
I never would have thought that I would be so open about trying to conceive a healthy child, but I pray that my transparency will be nothing but an encouragement to others.
I know I am not alone, and pray that through my openness on the situation and its struggles that I could be a blessing and encouragement to other women experiencing this extremely difficult path.
If you would, please continue to pray for Mr. Free and I as we begin this new path to parenthood tomorrow. Please pray for us to have strength, comfort and peace. Please pray for a clear problem and an easy solution. But most of all, pray for our hearts to be receptive to the path the Lord has planned for us.
