meet Foster Roy
During my pregnancy I got a necklace from Lisa Leonard with Eccles. 3:1 engraved on it as a reminder that everything happens in God’s perfect timing and our little boy, Foster Roy, is a testament to that. I got pregnant two summers ago, and we were a little worried about how we would juggle everything. Just as we started settling into the idea of another baby, I went to my first apt at 11 weeks and found out that we would not be having a baby. It was extremely sad, but then almost exactly a year later, we were blessed with the news of me being pregnant again. I'm thinking that God knew we needed a year PLUS 9 months to prepare for a new addition to our family.
As Foster’s birth approached we thought we had it all timed perfectly. However about a month before his due date, my doctor instructed me to get my hospital bags packed and be prepared for him to come early. My parents picked a random day to come to town earlier than originally planned so that they could possibly be here for the birth and to help out. Well…they just so happened to roll into town about 2 hours before my water broke! Kevin had to leave town for a short business trip the day after Foster was born so their company was essential and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. It was also ironic that Foster was born on a Tuesday before the only weekend between then and November that we don’t have any weddings booked. He came into our lives at the absolute perfect time and I’m so humbled that God is so concerned about every detail and minute of our lives.
