Sweet Support

Alright ya'll! We've all said it before, but I have to say it again, the community everybody has made blogland and twitterland into is pretty incredible. There is love, lots of laughs, friends new and old and their posts or tweets to relate to, there is need, and there is support!

I first want to thank you for your support for our Naturally Caffeinated Family! Seriously, you know you have brought tears to my eyes with how sweet and caring ya'll are. I am so incredibly happy and ecstatic to tell you that our follow up ultrasound appointment on Friday could not have gone any better!!!!!!!!! Littlest looked amazing!! Had grown amazingly! And even moved around for us during the ultrasound too, it was... amazing! :-) We could see Littlest's little arms and legs, his or her (everybody thinks it's a girl :)) big ole head. Remember at our last appointment 2 weeks and a day before, Littlest measured 6 weeks and 1 day and on Friday (2 weeks and 1 day later), Littlest measured 8 weeks and 5 days! It is still driving my apparently very Type A self crazy that I don't know the exact dates, haha! I don't know if you could tell from my first post telling ya'll we were pregnant, that we were so incredibly excited, but it wasn't written quite as excited as I would normally be. The reason is because that since we've had a high risk pregnancy and a miscarriage, it is hard for us to make it fully real, and dive all in, until we know that the baby is ok. It's a protective mechanism I suppose. But that's also why we tell early, because the power of prayer is unbelievable and beyond comprehension. Anywho, we are praising God like crazy and head over heels excited!! BabyBoy says he's ready for another baby and he wants a baby sister, hehe. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for loving us and supporting us even when I haven't been able to get on your blogs and share my love with you lately! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!

Here is the new pic of Littlest! The head is on the right, and do you see his or her little arms and legs??? Incredible! As Hubby said on Friday, and I completely concur, it never gets old. We are always excited about each appointment, even when they are the shorty short ones!! :)

Now there are couple friends that need some support!!


My first blog friend and very first commenter ever was a wonderful, sweet, true, loving, real life friend! These sweet friends, against our wishes, moved to Alabama, too many years ago, to be closer to family, we understand :), and continued adding little ones to their crew (and cute ones at that). Hubby and I have been trying to plan another trip to visit them and just hang out for a few days and get our laugh, board or card gameage, fun, and catching up (and snack while we game of course) on! :)

They have 5 littles of their own, despite doctors telling them they could never have ANY children because of several issues (that I know many others face). They went through years of trying, figuring out, praying, medicine, and a lot of faith.

Now, they are in the process of adopting a precious little one from Uganda. The A and LL have come up with a cute and wonderful idea to help raise funds to bring their next little one home! They brought to life and are selling HopeSuds! HopeSuds is a wonderfully homemade (with love!), all-natural, laundry detergent. I love how the family put it, every time that you scoop your HopeSuds, you can say a little prayer for their family and the new baby that will enter their lives! Awww, it's so powerful. If adoption is on your heart - bringing a little one who has nothing and is in deep need of love and security, into a loving, strong, family - and you want to help support this sweet family, then go get you some HopeSuds! We bought some and will definitely buy some more! Not only are you going to get a fabulous, well thought out, and all-natural product, but you will be an incredible support to this family and the little one they want to bring home. And any prayers you can throw their way is so appreciated too of course :-), for the adoption process, for the rest of their little family, and for the A and LL as well!


Many of you follow this sweet family as well! We have been following each other's blogs and tweeting together for a little while now, and they need our prayers and support as well. Sweet baby Cohen has been diagnosed, in utero, with four heart defects, will have many surgeries after he is born, and Brent and Megan have moved to a new state and town closer to the hospital where they will have Cohen.

Baby Cohen will be born on Monday June 7th!!! We are so excited for them and are praying for the whole fam! Please join me in praying for all of the doctors that will be involved, all of the nurses that cross their path, that God will have his hand on Brent, Megan, and Baby Cohen, as we know He does, that Cohen will be so strong, and fiesty :), the delivery will go wonderfully, for Brent and Megan after the delivery for strength, that their house they moved from sells, and I don't know about you, but we believe in miracles, and believe we can all be praying for one here too!!

And there is another way we can support them too! A trust fund has been set up to help with all of the medical expenses that their family will have. Click on the button below to read more about Baby Cohen and you can have the privileged opportunity to help out this wonderful family!

What a blessing each of these families are and I know it would be such a blessing to each of them to have your prayers and if you feel led a lil financial support as well! :)

Blessings friends!!
