God's Little Surprises

We had our sonogram yesterday to find out how far along we are: seven weeks, our due date is February 18.  We also saw something we did not expect: two babies.  
After praying for a child for over two years, suffering a miscarriage, traveling the road to Kyrgyzstan for five months, God gives us twins.  We are completely shocked and we feel very blessed. But we are also extremely sad. Prior to the sonogram we prayed about and felt peace about having two babies. We simply thought we would travel to Kyrgyzstan to get one of them.  We do not feel peace about having three infants at the same time.  And so, as much as it grieves our hearts to do so, we feel that we need to delay the arrival of our Kyrgyzstan baby for a little while.  We are experiencing many extreme emotions right now (especially with a double helping of pregnancy hormone) and we ask for your prayers as we learn more about what God has in store for our family. Please pray for a continued healthy pregnancy and two healthy babies.  
We wish all of you still on the journey continued blessings and speedy Fedex packages.  I still want to hear about all the goings on with international adoption and about each of your journeys.  I will be very sad not to be traveling with you.
