The Baby Bank

Let me start by saying. . . God is good!!
He knows the plans He has for me.
With Him ALL things are possible!!

If you follow our blog much,
you know it’s been a struggle for us to add to our family.
You can read more about that here. . .

When I say God is good,
I’m not just blowing smoke.
Or saying it to make myself fell better…
(although, somedays that is true).
It’s what I believe with all my heart!

My best friend and I are both traveling on unexpected paths
when it comes to expanding our families.
It’s such a comfort to know there’s someone out there…
who knows what it’s like to yearn for something you can’t have!

One of the MANY things I’ve learned this year
is that whatever option you choose. . .
adoption or fertility treatments
. . . it’s not a walk in the park!!

We were so blessed with Mercedes.
One procedure and we accomplished our goal.
This time not so much!!

Not only does it (your family expansion option) take it’s toll emotionally…
(which I can honestly I have experienced and am seeing a counsler for)
Someday I can share that with you. . . but not just yet.
I haven’t processed it all myself.

Anyway. . .

Not only does it take it’s toll emotionally…
but financially too!

Again God is good!
Jim and I both have a brain.
and a pretty smart one at that!

Jim is blessed with a GREAT job.
Which pays for the lifestyle we choose.
We both have insurance.
Which helps pay for things to keep us healthy.
what I didn’t know is that it doesn’t cover “difficult family expansion”.
There’s no clause for that!

So for the plan we’re on each month…
at least 3 ultrasounds
at least 3 lab draws
at least 4 doctors visits
…we pay it all out of pocket!!

I’m explaining all of this, so that you know…
when you purchase Tastefully Simple Products
or bags from Thirty One Gifts
You’re not just buying stuff…
You’re helping buy us a baby!!

Thank you for your continued prayers of support!

Thank you for your words of encouragement!

Thank you for not asking “how’s it going”!

And I’ll close with a reminder. . .
God is good!!
He knows the plans He has for me.
With Him ALL things are possible!!
