When Myles was born we had our hands pretty full with 3 kids plus running a market stand.
3 years we decided. We would wait three years before we even started thinking about maybe adding a fourth child.
Those plans didn’t change, especially when we decided to move across the country to California.
However, it has always been our goal to allow space within our plans for God to adjust them as he sees fit.
I can honestly say, though, that we didn’t see this one coming.
In May 2020 we realized that baby #4 would be joining us in January 2021.
This wasn’t our plan and in my opinion the timing was pretty horrific.
But a baby is always a blessing and we were excited from the very beginning.
Fast forward to August 2020 we finally made it to Redding CA. It took a couple weeks to get settled in. Kenzie started school and Checkers started his job.
Then I started researching midwifery practices in Redding. I found one I liked, set up a consultation and left there pretty excited about them. They seemed to operate much like the midwifery practice I had used in PA.
Then I had an ultrasound done.
Are you ready for this??
They said there’s two babies!
So basically, God decided to surprise us with not only one addition but two!
(Also these babies are due to arrive about 6 weeks after Myles 3rd birthday. So, roughly a year earlier then we had planned.)🤷♀️🙂
This is the point where I learned that it is illegal for midwives to deliver twins in California.
So, all my previous research was a waste of time and I started all over again, this time in search of a DOCTOR. I did find one.👏
In case you’re wondering… yes we are quite excited to add two more little people to our clan.
We might have been surprised but we also know for sure that we are blessed beyond measure!❤️
