We closed our eyes, counted to three, and opened to find a big plus-sign on the test.
I’m the doubter in our relationship so it took me some convincing that the sign was in fact 100% positive. Then we screamed so loud while simultaneously jumping up and down that I regretted having the windows open that morning. We fell back into bed and just stared at each other with the biggest grins on our faces. We were going to be parents. Our unity as husband and wife had produced something fully him and fully me. What a beautiful thing God has created!
Baby Prokopets is set to arrive on February 14, 2015, our little Valentine. He or she will be surely loved!
With this being our first child, there are so many unknowns. But there is one thing we are certain of, that we will be loved and supported by our friends and family every step of the way. It has been an incredible experience to receive such love from so many already. Yesterday, we emailed our clients, both past and present, wanting them to hear the news first hand. And the response was overwhelming. We are so thankful for our family, our friends, and our clients – we know we’re not alone in this and that is a very reassuring thought.
One of our very sweet clients Jamie sent me a piece of advice upon hearing our news that echos my philosophy on marriage and parenting, “To raise healthy kids, simply put your marriage first and your children second. For many of today’s couples, the children are priority No. 1 and marriage is priority No. 10 – and few of us make it past the top three priorities on our daily to-do list.” I’m sure this baby will both challenge and strengthen our marriage in many ways and I hope to share about it with you in the process.
The sex of baby P will remain unknown, even to us, until we deliver. So, we look forward to sharing our little surprise in the new year. Thanks again for all of your love and support!
