Amazed and Overwhelmed…

I just want to say how amazed I am by all the love poured out to Ryan and me over the past week or so, not to mention the previous 7 years we have struggled with infertility.

Since we made our “announcement” on Saturday, we have had well over 100 emails, phone calls, text messages, home visits, in-person hugs and congratulations, as well as facebook messages and comments. It is absolutely amazing, and they keep on coming. I sit here in awe of it all.

My husband has read my blog postings off and on over the years, much more off than on. The other night, he decided to read some of the comments left on here since the announcement. He only got half way through before telling me to “stop chopping onions” and “take the computer away”. To say all of this has touched both of us is an understatement.

For the first time ever, he actually left a comment on this blog sometime this morning and I found it this afternoon. It is for all of you, so I thought I would re-post it here:

I just wanted to take a moment to thank every one of you who have commented on Michelle's blog here. All of your love and support and well wishes have been so wonderful; and I don't even know who most of you are. Reading about all of your thoughts and prayers for us (for some of you, over the years...my gosh) has been overwhelming for me. You have all given Michelle and I both so much strength and hope - you have no idea. Again, thank you so much.

I think that says it all. We are both so grateful, for everything. It is impossible to express that to you enough.

If you are so inclined, please continue to pray with us that this baby grows healthy and strong. He or she is already loved so much; words just can’t describe it…

You two deserve it!! That baby (or babies) is/are gonna be spoiled rotten from day 1 by more than just you guys! :D I know because I'm a spoiler myself! I think the boys can confirm that. LOL

Will keep on praying for you guys. Me and our Father have had it out about this issue for awhile now. I only argue a point with God if I have to and this was a dire situation! Glad he's finally seeing it our way!

Love you guys!

Chopping onions. That's cute. Hubs always says "It's dusty in here."

I didn't get to comment of the original post, but wanted to and will say it now - so happy for you! My heartfelt congratulations to you and your husband as you celebrate this long awaited pregnancy.

Not sure how I found your blog - But I wanted you to know that I will pray for your baby to grow strong and healthy. I will pray that your body provides all this little baby needs in the next 8 months - to be born strong and healthy. I will pray that you have a wonderful pregnancy with little or no complications. What a precious gift God has given you. I think it is wonderful of you to ask others to be praying. That shows you know who really is in charge ( God ). I don't think I have heard of anyone who has tried as long as you and your husband. I am sure there are many, I just haven't heard of any! May you rest in His Peace - knowing He loves you and this baby more than you can imagine! Blessings to you in abundance!
