Michael Paul has something IMPORTANT to say… May 19, 2010

Well, as you all know if you follow the drama that is the Mears’ life, there is never a dull moment. Before I go jumping into things, we thought we’d let Michael Paul tell you the next step in the family adventure…

That’s right! We’re pregnant! Baby Mears #2 is due December 25, 2010. Merry Christmas!

Most of you know we struggled with the decision to close our home to foster placements. We were beyond sad and weren’t sure what the purpose had been of the last 16 months. The decision to close our home was not made lightly and, even as we made it, we weren’t 100% sure why we did. But, we serve a faithful God and we knew this was what He was asking of us at the time. We informed the children’s home of our decision on Friday, April 16th. The close was made official on Monday, April 19th. On Tuesday, April 20th, we found out we were expecting. It was as if God had written His purpose and His will for the close in the sky. If you question the existence of a God who desires to be INTIMATELY INVOLVED in the details of your life, I ask that you consider our story and think twice.
We are beyond thrilled and we ask that you, again, pray for us as we anticipate the next chapter in the story God is writing for us.

    Michael Paul seems to be as excited about his impending sibling as Benjamin is. Enjoy watching your “big” boy start to interact with his sibling as your pregnancy progresses. I have been informed that my belly button is Ben’s phone to “Baby Siblin’ ” LOL. Enjoy each experience that comes with expecting a new baby when you have a toddler boy. 😀 It’s been great for us so far and I hope it is at least half as delightful for your family.
