God is sending Beth and I our first child! We found out on my birthday, what a gift! We decided that we'd start trying in 2012 in hopes that a little one would arrive sometime in our 3rd year in Columbia (the final year of Residency & Seminary). We didn't know how long it would take, but God blessed us within 2 weeks! Amazing!
The due date is September 18th 2012.
It's too early to determine the sex, but we're leaning toward not finding out until he or she gets here. I'm the "Last of the Yardleys" so there isn't any pressure or anything...Having Beth as a doctor means we're privy to all kinds of paternal hardships so we have a whole new level of appreciation for the phrase "we just want a healthy child."
Please be praying for both Beth and the baby! Morning sickness has hit Beth hard. Nausea and vomiting is a daily routine. We're hoping it will all go away by the end of the first trimester. Be praying! We want a healthy mom and baby!
Reconciled by Christ, Brett & Beth recount their tales of service to God through their gifts of ministry & medicine with Jethro & Edessa in tow.
