Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Very Advanced Maternal Age

Lizzie O'Cayce and the Magister feel a bit like Abraham and Sarah, and we look forward to meeting this little soul that God has entrusted to us.

I'm guessing (unless I'm totally off on my whole Bible memory) that congratulations are in order! What an exciting adventure for you both. Good luck!

St. Elizabeth of Cayce said...

Yes, Heather, we are about to be parents for the first time. If God's plan for our family matches our dreams, I will get my AARP card before my child's first birthday. We covet your prayers for fetal and maternal health, peace of mind for the parents (esp. me, given my background and tendency to worry), and for us to be honoring to God in all that happens with this pregnancy.

What wonderful news! Congrats! This even deserves a third exclamation mark!

C and I are really happy for you guys, and please be assured of our daily prayers.

I have long thought (well, thought for a bit over a year), that the Knoxville Barn raisers are just about the most natural and best suited parents I've ever watched from afar. I hope we can learn from what you've shared about your experiences.

Wow...thanks. I don't know how well "natural" fits, but being a parent certainly feels right, as it's clearly part of our vocations. God seems to know what He's doing. :-)

Perhaps vocated was the term I was looking for (and yes, I know where I might have found it.) God has given us a new or expanded vocation now. It's humbling to think of it that way.
