God's Pregnancy Plan for Us

Well, as you may already know, I have one CF child(Lil' Chris) and am due to have another child next month. If you read the beginning of my blog(click here for that post), you'll see that I kinda went through the same stage that a lot of CF moms go through after diagnosis or after finding out that both parents are CF carriers. I always wanted 2 or 3 kids. I was upset that I couldn't have more children. I thought there is no way I can possibly bring another CFer into this world and have it suffer it's whole life. But...then God intervened and presto...we were pregnant 10 months later. We felt like Mary and Joseph, not knowing how it happened(well, we know how...well, you catch my drift;)

I was upset at first not knowing our babies fate, but soon realized that this is what God had in store for us. He always has a plan for everybody. And some days it's hard for me to think about my baby girl being born with CF too. But I know that the Lord is right by our side and will guide us through any situation that comes our way. He won't give us anything He knows we can't handle. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. We just have to trust and have faith in God and ourselves to have the strength to get through anything, even 2 CF children =)

How will I handle it if she does have CF? I will accept it and take it one day at a time. I will put one foot forward and not look back. I will love her with all my heart. I will give her the best life I possibly can...she deserves that much.

Your little girl could not be any luckier to have such wonderful parents to take care of her.
As another wise mother once said, "God makes no mistakes." The road ahead is unsure, but we are all here to help in any way possible.
Sending lots of prayers and hugs

I hope that she is CF free,but it sounds like you have positive outlook either way which is great :)
I'm doing everything possible at this point not to have another but like you said if it is meant to be then it will. Congrats I'm happy for you and i wish your family the very best!

M - you express yourself so well! Regardless of your little girl's status, both of your kids are lucky to have such great parents!Daniel's Mom

You are so precious, and you recognize that every moment of your childrens' lives are precious. The beautiful thing about trials is they give us a glimpse of God that we would otherwise not have. He is "near to the brokenhearted", and "the testing of our faith produces perseverence", so that we (and our CF children) can be "mature and complete, lacking nothing". Your faith is wonderful, and while we pray that your little girl is CF-free, we know whatever is in store for her will be exactly what God has planned since he knit her together in your womb.

I agree with what Alicia said. One of my favorite scriptures is Isaiah 41:10 & 13. I was just thinking of those verses today driving down the road and talking to God.
Lots of love, hugs & kisses to all,
Mom

M...I love your post and your positive attitude! God is Awesome and he has given you and Chris an awesome little boy and he will give you an awesome little girl! But I think it is great how He has given you many friends to travel this road of life with. You have such a great support system, between family and close friends, and the friends you have met because of Lil Chris' CF! Like you stated in your post, God gives what He knows you can handle, and then he provides help and support along the way as well! Go M....
Love you girl!
