Pregnant with Quadruplets!

Pregnant with Quadruplets!

Dry roasted peanuts cravings at 1am, ready for  naps by 10am, not being able to button your favorite pair of jeans in just under 2 months, appearing as though you are 4 months pregnant when you are really only 2 months pregnant, acne breakouts in groups of four all over your jawline, two groups on each side, intense desire to go to the cooler in the grocery store and crack open and drink an entire gallon of vitamin D milk which normally would make you gag, a permanent smile across your face that doesn’t even leave when you sleep (according to your husband). Yes, I would most assuredly say, these are all strong signs of not just being pregnant but being pregnant with quadruplets.

I carry in my heart womb 3 year old twins and a 4 week old, I carry in my womb an 8 week old. Do you need to read that last line again? I don’t blame you,  I needed to as well.

I mean really, why do in 7 years what you can do in less than 2 months. Only the Master Creator could be behind a move like this. That’s right my lovely readers, you are picking up what I am laying down. I am expecting yet another sweet little miracle. I could not and I repeat, could not, be more elated. Initially I thought I was experiencing all of these symptoms due to my 3 heart pregnancies but it would appear as though it is that plus 1!

When we told the girls this morning, they must have jumped up and down and spun in circles singing “Adams family, party of 8, your table is ready” 500 times.  I love the sound of that. Nothing is ever wasted in God’s world. 8 signifies new beginnings. I dare say, this is a new beginning for the Adams family. A newer beginning than I could have ever imagined for myself. Grateful doesn’t come close to the way I feel.

So if you see me at the grocery store with my 8 year old, my 5 year old, my 2-3 year olds, my 1 year old, my newborn and my hair isn’t done, my socks don’t match and there’s peanut butter on my butt, please, by all means, come over and offer me a brush and a wipe. I’ll gratefully receive your kind gesture.

Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:2-4

We are still raising much needed funds to bring our three Haitian beauties home. Please donate what you are able and share our story with as many people as you can. Most of you follow our journey fairly closely. So for those of you who do not, we wanted you to know that the funds that were being raised for our last adoption that turned out to be a scam, were used toward this adoption and it paid for passports, legal document copies, medical evaluations and our application fee. Those fees were not included in our 36k. Please be reassured it was used for what it was intended.

We still need to raise 5k more by Friday and then after that we will still have another 31k to go! It takes a village to raise a child, a village to pay to bring a child home, 8 villages to raise 8 children and 3 villages to bring 3 babies home from Haiti. Will you please do all you can. We are so grateful for all of your support.
