It’s a blog post that I have been both extremely excited and very nervous to write. It’s a blog post that comes with a tremendous amount of mixed emotion. And it’s a blog post that simultaneously brings tears of sadness with tears of happiness.

we are pregnant. WE are pregnant. WE ARE pregnant! WE ARE PREGNANT!

Yup, Ezra and Liam become older brothers! It is news that we have sat on for a while as we sorted through our own emotions before sharing with you; but we are finally at a place that we want to bring to you the thrill of what is next. Before I go any further, know that everything is just fine with the baby.

It would seem that every turn of life brings with it a new experience with grieving, and this one is certainly no different. The wrestling of loss and gain has been a scary battle at times, but a necessary process. Each turn of excitement is tempered with memory, but don’t worry, it’s not dampened…just put into perspective.

This new addition to our family will arrive in October, and we are really looking forward to celebrating the story with you all.

Did I mention…WE ARE PREGNANT!

    Ahna, Oren, and Ezra . . . I have been waiting for this post. I can’t believe I haven’t seen you in that long (so long! – Oren – since Las Vegas – Logistics training, Ahna and Ezra even longer!) I haven’t even given you a hug yet. Know that when I eventually see any of you it will result in tears – of everything =) from me. I ran the Coalfax Half Marathon this year and through most of it was thinking of you guys running the relay last year . . . I don’t have much else to add but I’m excited for you guys.

  6. CONGRATULATIONS ! ! ! ! ! MJ had told us, saying that you had authorized release of the info. However, we thought it best to hold off until the “official” announcement. One more to add to the prayer list.
