I have a confession to make.  I have a craving for a baby bad.  I have ever since Lydia was about 3 months old I swear.  Oh but it’s kind of hard for me to come by babies.  It takes me awhile to get pregnant.  I have to go on hormone pills and all sorts of fun stuff.  But you know what?  All the waiting and hormone pill taking makes me so incredibly grateful we have Lydia.  We truly are blessed.  Of course I get frustrated and sad, especially when I get on facebook and you see about five of your friends announce they are pregnant in one day.

I know I will get pregnant again.  We are hoping soon of course!  Lydia needs a sibling.  And we need a baby!  Heavenly Father knows all things and what is best for our family so we trust in Him.  We pray and trust in Him every day.  I just feel like the timing that our children come to earth is bigger than our wants.  So we wait.

I don’t write these things so you all feel bad for us.  I write them to let all the other families waiting for their children out there that they aren’t the only ones.  Some things you go through in life just feel better that you aren’t the only one.  When you know someone else has experienced or is experiencing your exact same heartache, it makes that sucky heartache a little more bearable.

“Waiting can be hard. We live in a world offering fast-food, instant messaging, and on-demand movies. Patience means accepting that which cannot be changed and facing it with courage, grace and faith. It means being “willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon [us], even as a child doth submit to his father”  President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

  1. Well said Kara!! I know it will happen for you as well!! You and Greg are too good of parents and make dang cute kids to only have one:) I admire your patience!!

  2. Love ya Sista! I love when we can share similar expierances but I really wish this wasn’t one of them. Just remember Heavenly Father has a plan for each one of us & even though its hard when His plan is not our plan, in the end these trials bring our biggests blessings.

  3. Oh kara. I am so glad you wrote this post. You and greg are amazing parents. Lydia is a beautiful lucky girl. We love you guys so much and miss you.

  4. Thanks for your post Kara!!!! It hits close to home for our family as well. I can’t even tell you how hard it is to be patient for something that feels like it should just come naturally and easily, but for a lot of us it doens’t and it’s sad, but there is strength which comes through finding our Savior and relying on him through all our trials. I remember when everyone told us to hang in there. I looked at them blankly, honestly. But it’s true. Hang in there. The best part about it all is looking back and seeing how you found happiness in the journey even with such a trial. Your sister said it best…our trials bring the biggest blessings. It will happen! It will!!!

  5. I’m there with ya, as you know!! It’s not fair that this is a trial for many of us. I am just thankful for Doctors, and pills (hormones) and the medical world or who knows if my Blake would actually be here. I hope it happens soon for you and Greg! We miss you guys!

  6. Kara! It’s been a long time! I know how you feel…it took us quite a bit longer this time around to get pregnant too. Hang in there and don’t stress. It will happen.

  7. I wish I would have checked your blog sooner, I didn’t know that getting pregnant was such a trial for you. I’m sorry that is trial for you. You are such a wonderful mother and I love your attitude and faith. Heavenly Father does know whats best and I’m so glad that he blessed you with Lydia to keep you company while you patiently wait for another sweet spirit to enter your family! Love you guys!
