Five Years in Heaven

Today marks the fifth anniversary of Thomas' death.  While it is still a hard day, I am so grateful for how much healing the Lord has brought to my heart in the past five years.

Our church made this video about our story this past spring:

At the time we had no idea William would soon be joining our family!  In the video I talk about seeing God's hand in the details of our story, and those little "details" have continued.  I love that ALL of my babies have November birthdays.  I won't have time for pity parties when we will be busy counting our blessings with birthday parties!  Even today, November 28th, was the day Turner and Emmaline were celebrating their birthday with their preschool class.  It was good for my heart to see their excitement and be happy for them today!

"He made us, and we are his.  We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation."
- Psalm 100:3-5 (NLT)

Baby William

We are so excited to announce the birth of our precious William Shepard Behm, born November 1st at 6:20am.  He weighed 7lb 15oz, and was 20.5" long.  He is such a joy! Turner and Emmaline are loving their new roles as big brother and big sister.  

We wondered who he would look like throughout the pregnancy.  He never was very cooperative with his ultrasounds!! Turner and Emmaline look so different, it was anyone's guess! He ended up looking most like his brother Thomas, which we weren't expecting! What a gift to be able to get glimpses of Thomas as we watch William grow up!

We are so grateful for this little blessing!

"I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of."
-John 10:10 (The Message)
