{{{{{Erin}}}}} You are walking down a very difficult and complicated path indeed, but LIFE has been chosen. I trust that because you've honored that life that God has created, He will be walking each step down this path with you. He will be faithful!

And don't feel you need to walk this path alone. Many communities have pregnancy resource centers (look up Care Net to find one) who offer support for the moms and families. They will be there to compassionately and confidentially support you in many different ways.

Praying for you and your family as I hit the "post" button!

I too walked this very same path 13 years ago. Those months that followed the unexpected announcement were some of the most anxious of my life. My precious grandson is now a fine young man of 13, three inches taller than me and the light of my life. We have been so richly blessed!


I can see your mother's heart here and it is beautiful. I cannot imagine walking where you are as my own daughter is only 8. But I can think back to the circumstances of her own conception and birth and with a smile, I can say that there is absolutely nothing I would change about that experience. As hard as it was, it has helped to make me the person I am today and of course I have a beautiful daughter from that difficult situation as well.

That is my prayer for you, your daughter, your family and your grandbaby... that at some point you will be able to look back with the same smile I have knowing that entire course was guided by God's loving hand.

PS... I absolutely love this blog!

Randi, every couple of weeks I check out your blog and I was so very pleasantly surprised to find you had started this one.

Beauty from Ashes is exactly what my life has been. Although our circumstances were different in the sense that we are married. We had a totally unexpected pregnancy 4 years ago. At the worst possible time in all of our husband had been let go from his job as a pastor at our church, he was working a construction job that barely met our necessities each month and we were dipping into our saving every month, we already had 5 children to care for ages 6-14, no medical insurance, we sold our house and on the day I found out we didn't actually have a rent house lined out to live in. And I was 41!

I can say this without hesitation that she has been the best blessing during this 4 year struggle. God chose the worst time, knowing we needed a blessing to help carry us through, and it winded up being the best.

I'm praying for you and your family as you model an example of Christ's love to your girl and the world.


Praying for you as you walk this path with your daughter. Thank God, she chose life for this precious gift from God. I, too, had an unexpected gift many years ago. He is the light of my life, a wonderful husband, and the father of my three gorgeous grand children. He loves the Lord with all his heart and tries to live life in a manner that is pleasing to God. God truly does make beauty from ashes as we allow Him to change us and mold us into His image. We can't wait to welcome your gift with you. Give your girl a hug. She will need lots of support.


One year ago these word you have written were mine. I am encouraged by your honesty. I am ashamed to say, instead of thanking our Father for His gift,I crawled away and mourned. Our grandson is going to be one in a week. He is truly a gift. The Lord escorted me out of my worry and sadness with each word of thanksgiving I uttered. Thanksgiving is the key. Prayer is my strength. Our girl is a lovely mom and our grandson is the joy of our world. Blessings and prayers for your family.
