NEWdevelopments

Well, my excitement was short lived as we found out today Matt leaves for New York on Monday. He will get to come home for a couple of weekends but by mid April he'll be up there full time. I'm excited for Matt because I know he's excited about his new job and is dying to get started. I know I'll be okay here there are some personal stresses that come with this but we'll work through those as they arise. My biggest concern is that Matt is going to miss Dealey's birth if God would just let me plan it out, that would make it so much easier, but I've asked and haven't heard anything back yet, I believe I already know the answer.....sigh I know it will be an overwhelming experience and I'll be so excited about Dealey being here but I also know that I'll be in tears and broken hearted that my love missed this amazing moment in our lives. I hate to sound so defeated but it's hard right now I'm still trying to digest it all....

hey rachel!! I was on Firewheel's website and it says they are looking for a new worship arts pastor. Is JD leaving?

Don't despair, Rachel. I don't know the statistics, but I would think that it's pretty uncommon for babies to just *poof* be there. Odds are, you'll find out you're in labor and he can catch a flight - or you can schedule a c-section. He'll be there. Have faith!

I agree with Allison, Rachel. I KNOW this is really hard, but you will likely know that you are in labor... granted, there are rare times, like mine, that you won't know, but even then, Zoe took a few hours to arrive... this would give your hubby time to catch a flight and be there. Not to mention... you should have a while, right? Or are they saying Dealey is coming ASAP?
Ye have a little faith! God will take care of you!

How are you doing Rachel? I have been thinking about you A LOT lately, so I figured I'd send you a little "thinking of you" note. :)
