Blessed to have met ya'll...

When I first moved to Abilene, TX I did not have any friends. I pretty much stuck to myself basically because I didn't know of a way to meet other military wives. It was actually a bad year for me because I had no support here while I was pregnant with Thales, wondering if he would be born with JEB-PA and dying. I prayed for an avenue to meet other wives with similar beliefs, values, and morals...

My prayer has been answered. I do not have tons of friends that I hang out with. However, God has granted me a small handful of good friends. I may not see them everyday (due to their or my schedule) but I love and care about them deeply. When they are hurting I do as well. They are so very similar to me and I would love to get to know them even more. Slumber party anyone? :-)

We are all have pretty much the same beliefs and values. We have to get together more than what we do and have some awesome girl time! I am definitely needing a girl night with lots of junk food, clean fun, and lots of laughter!

I am just sitting here looking at Thales. I don't think there is a day that goes by that I am not thanking God for him. I still cannot believe how long it has taken us to finally have a baby. I am just very very blessed.
Chris and I know for sure we will eventually adopt. However, we also want to have another biological baby. I love looking at Thales and seeing Chris (I'm in there somewhere lol) and we would love to have another. Now that we figured out our fertility problems...getting pregnant won't be the hard part..the deciding on whether or not we should will be!
We carry a genetic disease so with every pregnancy, the baby has a 25% chance of having it and passing away. I prayed a long time before we got pregnant with Thales and I will do the same again..I just wonder if it makes me a bad mother to take the chance again? This isn't something we are trying to decide today..probably will be in the next few yrs (if I can get done with nursing school!) Just something I am pondering about as I am looking at him. Not trying to rush my time with him or anything..but we do want him to have a sibling. If it is God's will I believe when the time comes we will have peace about trying to conceive again. If there is no peace, we won't.
On an end note...I love you very much Thales Christopher! You are so very wanted and we thank God for you!

2010 Halloween

Hubby and I took Thales trick or treating yesterday with some friends. We had such a blast! Poor Thales got hot because it was so warm but hubby and I just had so much fun. I was so tickled to go up to each door and get FREE candy!
