Jason and I would like to ask our families, friends, co-workers, readers, acquaintances, really anyone who can and wants to take the time to include us in your prayers and fast on this upcoming Fast Sunday.
What's Fast Sunday? As part of our faith, every first Sunday of the month our church has asked us to fast or skip at least 2 meals (food and drink). We fast to help us or others overcome trials and tribulations, to bring us closer to our Savior and to help us gain more understanding of the plan that Heavenly Father has for us.
We are so very blessed to have been given this opportunity to bring (hopefully) a baby into this world. We know that our Heavenly Father has led us to our doctors, helped provide us with the proper insurance and has granted us patience and hope during this process.
We will be fasting on Sunday to help us prepare for our transfer. We hope that you will join us. If fasting isn't your favorite thing to do, then we would really appreciate any and all prayers as we get closer to our transfer. Whether you are vocal or silent, within a faith or without; any positive words, intentions (on and off your mat) or energy directed towards us and this occasion would mean so much.
Jason and I are also approaching the 3 year anniversary of our son Jack J Reynolds. We lost him on April 5th, 2009 at 16 weeks. This has been a long process for us. We have made so much progress, had many setbacks and have learned so much about ourselves and what is truly important since then. It's hard to imagine that I could have had an almost 3 year old, or an almost 2 year old or an almost 1 year old right now. And there are many days when I am so unsure of the plan that my Heavenly Father has for me, but here I am, here we are, about to embark on something so remarkable. I almost can't imagine it being any other way, without any of you on this journey with us.
So this Sunday, if you could take some time out of your day, maybe skip a meal or two, light a candle, direct your intentions, thoughts and prayers towards us and our journey to become parents...
we would really appreciate it.
