Thank you all for your sweet words of encouragement, comfort & sympathy for my post on what we do when our faith fails.  Thank you for understanding that this was my little struggle. I know that there are a lot of women who would love to have one child, let alone a 4th. I hope you understand my heart is not one of complaining but pure vulnerability. I also hope that you could see past my momentary struggle of trusting God and be able to relate to times when you worry, doubt or distrust God’s goodness.

I also wanted to share with y’all a very sweet & hopeful email that I received from one of the co-founders of the Intelligender product. Here is what she wrote:


Hi!  I am one of the founders of IntelliGender.  I saw your blog post.  I loved your writings and could totally relate to your reaction.  I have 4 kids.  After 3 boys, I found out I was pregnant just 3 month’s post-partum.  I was shocked to say the least.  My only hope was that it was a girl.  When I went for the ultrasound, I told all my friends and kids that there would be either a pink balloon on the mailbox or a blue one.  They all said, “yeah right.  There will either be a pink balloon or no balloon”.  They were probably right.  Thank goodness I got my little girl.

I wanted to tell you that your result doesn’t look like a strong boy result.  Please know that our test is not 100% accurate.  There is certainly hope! Can we send you a free test just for grins?  Make sure you abstain for a couple of days and of course use first morning urine (the most important part). We will be hoping pink balloons for you!!  Congratulations on your pregnancy.

It was very thoughtful of them to send a personal testimony & offer a second test. I wanted to make sure y’all understood that even though the result may be wrong and I may be having a girl. I am  thankful for their product to allow me to process through my “true” feelings and review God’s goodness before I hold that precious, wonderful gift from God in my arms.

Have a wondeful day!
