Millions of thoughts kept running through my mind, but both Jon and I had an underlying peace even at that early point. We were united in our decision to proceed with that cycle. Even as we walked to the car following the appointment that day, I will never forget Jon's words as he turned to me with complete conviction and said, "We will never regret having too many children. Let's do it!" I let out a deep sigh and felt peace wash over me.
Little did I know at the time that we would be treading on holy ground, and I would need the peace of God to sustain my very life as He walked me through the minefield of surprises that lay ahead. We had carefully weighed all our odds and fearfully yet happily decided to step out in faith and take advantage of my great cycle.
