Here’s a post from Christopher and Anna Marie:

The Lord has been very gracious to us, and it is with great joy that we anticipate holding a little one in our arms around May 20th of next year. It’s amazing to think of this new, precious life which is forming inside of Anna Marie, and we look forward to getting to know this little one better in the coming months and years. Anna Marie is feeling and doing quite well. She’s been experiencing some morning sickness, yet nothing compared to what we’ve heard others often experience.

We would greatly appreciate your prayers in the coming months (and years) as this is a new and exciting path for us, yet we know that this is something above and beyond us — we definitely need the Lord’s enabling grace!

In Christ,
Christopher, Anna Marie, and Baby

“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD…” (Psalms 127:3)

  1. I don’t know if this picture was taken before you knew of the pregnancy or after, but I love the joy on your faces and the protective angle of Christopher’s hand near Anna Marie’s womb. So lovely!

  2. Congratulations! I’m so happy to hear this news. I thought this news would be coming soon.
    Blessings to you and your family!

  3. So very happy for you both (and the rest of the family!)!
    I have to admit, I’ve been waiting for this news and praying for you in this regard for awhile now.

    Every blessing to you for a wonderful pregnancy, labor and delivery. My prayer is that the Lord shows you who this baby is, and gives you specific wisdom and guidance in how to raise him or her to walk in their destiny. Enjoy the preparation for and the anticipation of what is to come.

    Much love!

  4. Congratulations Anna and Christopher. Any month is a good month when there’s a new baby but May is my favorite month. Winter is over, warm days abound, and flowers are in bloom. I hope your pregnancy is an easy one Anna, and before long you’ll be looking into your baby’s eyes.
