    That is GREAT news. I’m so happy for you both. I’m hoping to have luck in making Ryland a big brother but we’ve had no luck for 17 months. Ryland loves little kids and I think it would help him out to have someone around all the time to play with.

    Wonderful news! Keeping you and the little Champ in my prayers. Go Heels!

    Came across your websites through cakewrecks – of all places. =) Read the story of your first and second with awe at how God has worked in your lives.

    My daughter (3yrs) and I have been praying for your newest little one every night since I read your initial post. If the prayers of the righteous man are heard – I figure the prayers of a littler one, too… after all, the kingdom of God belongs to such as these, right?

    We’re so excited for you! God is good! We will continue to keep you in our prayers.

    Hi — I read the Cake Wrecks entry today with James’ birthday cake and followed the links to read your story. I had a pregnancy that ended with a very sad result and I wanted to tell you I am so sorry for your loss but excited for you for your beautiful third baby. It takes a lot of courage every day to be pregnant after losses such as yours. The very best to your beautiful family! And thank you for sharing your story.

  20. Lacey says:


    You know what they say, the third time is a charm!

    James and Dora are going to be wonderful guardian angels to this little one. Best of luck to you!

    I came across your websites from cakewrecks and read about your journey. My heart is sad to see what you have gone through with the loss of your two children. I admire your strength through everything that has been handed to you. I want to say congratulations on expecting baby number three! That is exciting and your son will have two special people watching over him.

  22. kimberleena says:

    I just came across your blogs, and I am so praying for you and your little one! I lost a daughter at 17 weeks, and have had two early miscarriages but I can’t fathom what you two have gone through. Congratulations, and I know your angels will be watching over you!

  23. Brandy says:

    Congratulations. For the first time, I started reading your blog yesterday. I stayed up way too late taking it all in. I have to say that my heart aches thinking about Sweet Baby James, but the post at Cakewrecks was quite touching, his cake wonderful. Such a beautiful blessing he is. May his sibling also bring you much joy.

    I found your baby James site through cakewrecks and it really touched me. I have had struggles with my faith but seeing you two and the love and faith you have for Jesus and God really inspired me. It made me cry so much and I am so glad that you are pregnant again. Thank you for sharing your journey, your faith is an inspiration and God bless your family.

  25. Valerie says:

    I am so happy for you! Thank you so much for sharing your journey with James. I usually go to cake wrecks where I laugh until I cry. I had no idea your website would affect me the same way – laughing at James sweet smiling face and crying as his small body struggled to be healthy.

    My husband and I went through infertility as did my husband’s best friend and his wife. We both became pregnant at the same time and were afraid to tell each other; when we finally confessed, it was such a happy relief. Our boys were born six months apart. God is so good!

    Your site has really touched me and restored my faith in places where I didn’t even realize it was weak. Thank you. You are in my prayers!

  26. Congratulations! He’s a very fine one. JUlie
