Biblically, waiting is not just something we have to do until we get what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what God wants us to be. – John Ortberg
Ben and Lauren are about to become new parents; it will no longer only be the two of them. They are going to be caring for someone else. Someone they have been dreaming about, waiting for and who they have been excited to meet for some time now. They will be welcoming their baby boy or girl into the world in less than two weeks (hopefully). They will get to met their child face to face, carry them, love them and give them the world. Ben and Lauren will not only have the excitement of a new baby but they will also have the added excitement of finding out if their baby is a boy or a girl. There are not too many true surprises in the world these days but Ben and Lauren have chosen to be surprised in that moment of birth; to hear the doctor say "Congratulations, it's a ______!" And in that moment they will become mommy and daddy to that little life!
Congratulation Ben and Lauren on your sweet bump, I am so excited to meet your little one so so soon!
