While We Are Making Announcemets

We have been blessed in more ways than getting to stay where we wanted...we are also getting a third (and final) baby Shipley.

We told the kids Wednesday night at the same time we told them about not having to move.  Both are super excited to have a baby brother or sister, and both are rooting for another of their own gender.

I can only imagine the thoughts that people who know us, and those who know little about us, and even family are thinking (but kindly not saying).  But, the truth is, this was our decision, and something that we prayed on and for, for more than a year and a half.  We are happy, we are blessed, and we truly believe that our lives and our paths are in God's hands.

Our new addition will be here in December, and we will be overjoyed.

I am overjoyed for you!!!! You prayed, and God answered just the way you hoped He would! This sweet baby will be entering into an amazing family full of LOVE! Children are such special blessings from God, and NO one should question that!
