The Struggle of Becoming "Mom"- Intro

As Betsy and I (Carrie) keep thinking about our blog, one thing we keep coming back to is the spiritual aspect of our lives and what God is doing. Even though we will add our house cleaning tips, meal ideas, child rearing tips, and some humor along the way, we want to share our hearts during this process as well.

I am going to start what will probably be a several part series on the struggle of becoming a mom and dealing with loss (miscarriages) and infertility. Why? This is near and dear to our hearts. I have had two early miscarriages and then lost a baby boy at 16 weeks. Betsy and I also have several adopted cousins, and I have a nephew by way of invitro. I also know several friends who have struggled with even getting pregnant the first time, and many (including myself) who may never carry a baby normally again. This is a harsh reality of the sinful world we live in, yet one that is often very difficult to live with. It is also one that is very common in today's world!

My hope is to lead you through not just the factual and emotional aspect of this, but also the spiritual aspect as well. So stay posted-having two little ones means not a whole lot of writing time. I hope I can encourage you along the way.
