Joyous News

Well, in reviewing my past few blog posts, I realized that they have all been pretty much me whining! Why did't y'all slap me and tell me to knock it off?

Today I'm going to blog about something joyous! Meet my 2 friends Matt and Andrea.


Matt and Andrea are seriously two of the best people to ever walk the face of the planet. For real. I've mentioned them before here. Andrea is the Young Women's President in our ward, and I serve as the Young Women's secretary...so I've gotten to know her even better.

Matt and Andrea have been longing for parenthood for many years. They have been trying to conceive as well as go the adoption route. I know it has been a long, frustrating journey.

Friday they found out that they would be blessed with a little girl who had just been born. She was waiting for them in Florida! They headed out Saturday morning for sunny Orlando!

We (friends and family) have been receiving updates in the form of texts and FB with pictures of the new happy little family! Their new little one is absolutely beautiful! I won't post pictures of her...sorry, I know you'd all love to see her, but I don't feel that it's appropriate, or my place.

I guess I have lot's of hairbows to make for the little sweetie before they get back! I am just so thrilled for them. I am constantly trying to understand why it is that good, deserving, loving people can have such a struggle becoming parents, when it's what they want most. Yet young, promiscuous junkies can get pregnant in a snap, and they don't even have the desire to be mothers! I just don't get it.

So I am overjoyed for my 2 wonderful friends...and my heart goes out to those who are still struggling to find a way to become parents.

I hope everyone is having a great Monday, and has a wonderful week!

Yeah!! Congrats to them!

And yeah, I used to work as a foster care worker for the state of Utah.. and I would see 20 year old ladies that would be having their 3rd kids, none of which they could care for.. made me mad.

Congratulations to your friends!!! I too wonder about the deserving people who have so much trouble. Thank God that this was in the cards for them... I'm sure they are that sweet little baby's saving grace. Also, how great is it that they have such good friends (like you) to help show them the ropes of parenthood. Congratulations to you as well :)
