Telling your fortune

Have you ever received a fortune cookie fortune that actually came true? Yeah, me neither. That is until a couple months ago. Brad and I were enjoying our traditional Christmas dinner with chinese food (funny/long story I'll explain later) and this was the fortune I had waiting for me:

I know how good God is to me and as silly as it sounds, this small piece of paper gave me peace in knowing our journey of growing our family was in good hands. Brad and I had been trying for over a year to have a baby and while we knew it would take some time due to some hurdles, it did get a bit discouraging at times. Little did we know that when I opened this fortune cookie, it would prove to be more of a confirmation more than a glimpse into our future.

I'm so excited to say that Brad and I are expecting our first baby this September and we couldn't be more over-the-moon to be parents. We're looking forward to this incredible journey and how it changes our lives for the better!


  1. Congratulations!!!! What an exciting time! You are going to be a wonderful mother!

  2. We are so excited for you! It took Jerry and I a while the first time (not over a year like you), but I feel your pain. It is a long, hard journey. Now we have our sweet Emma Kate and another one on the way! The second one just happened. Good luck along the way. If you need anything, I am just one click away :)
