We really want this.

Jonathan and I are still trying. We've been trying for about 5 months now. We are a little discouraged, but we are still comforted by the fact that God is in control and not us.

A good thing about us being stalled this long is that I can finally sign up for my job's disability insurance which will allow me to have paid maternity leave! That will be a HUGE blessing. Jon and I have already discussed that he would be staying at home for the first year or so while he finishes his Master's and I'll be working here at the University. I love my job and the people I work with. Jon is fresh out of school and has jobs that he can do from home, so we are in a very good spot.

As for finances, with my new job came a higher pay which will help us a great deal. We can survive on my paycheck but it will certainly help to have Jon work from home as well. We have a 403b (the non-profit equivelant to a 401k) and we also have been adding to our savings account regularly.

We recently moved from our townhome to a real house! We are still renting, but we have an extra room for the same price as our townhome. It was built in the 1920s and is ranch style with a very unfinished basement that we only use for storage. All of the floors are hardwood and we have a beautiful layout that will work well for whatever God throws at us :)

So, all in all, we're still waiting as patiently as possible for God to bless us with what He has in store for us.
