Yes, this was planned.

The question we've gotten most so far is, "Was this planned?"
"Yes." is my answer.
It has apparently been planned by God since the foundation of the world. Looking at it like that makes it easier for us to grasp the idea of another precious soul in our care. Another little person. We opened our hearts to this plan about 2 weeks or so before the Lord revealed that he was POSITIVE this was his plan. We were willing, the Lord was able and willing. Now "i4" is on the way! We know exactly what causes it ;) and are rejoicing over this little life as much as we did when we found out "i1" (aka- Isaac) was on the way. We are STILL planning to adopt in 2014.
So, for the next couple years you may find me under what seems like a pile of diapers, but I will probably be able to give a good argument that I'm actually under a pile of blessings. Children are loud (mine in particular), they're messy, they smell, they cry, they laugh, they're cute, they make us laugh, they're full of potential, they're picky eaters, they require a great deal of energy and time, but they are most definitely a gift, a heritage, a great big blessing from the Lord!
