Hip Hop Baby...

Today's Unity hip hop is focusing on babies, as you all you know if you've made it this far down the line up. I'll be honest with you, this post is a little bitter sweet as pretty much every single close friend of mine (including myself) has been having diffiuclty with either carrying a baby to term (miscarriages) and or fertility complications. David and I have been trying to conceive since we got married 2 1/2 years ago and well it just hasn't happened; we are currently undergoing fertility procedures in the hopes that soon we will have a new little one to add to our nest. It's been a diffuclt time for my friends and I recently, but I find peace in the plan that my Lord Savior has for me and each one of my friends; his plan is always so much better then any plan we can make for ourselves!!

Well with all of that being said, you now might understand why I have not had a reason to get out any of the adorable Unity rubba kits that focus on pregnancy/baby. I did create this card awhile ago so since hip hop is focusing on babies I thought I would share it again-


Hopefully someday soon I'll be able to give this to one of my friends :)
I thank you for stopping by today friends....now continue your hip hoppin journey to the ultra talented blog of Amber

ALLY said...

Fabulous Heather!

Rona said...

Never give up HOPE! and what a blessing from God that you have friends who understand. My sister in law had the same problem in fact we were both pregnant at the same time and both had problems on the SAME day - her baby died and mine lived. It is tremendously hard for her to be around my daughter and not think about her first pregancy - but she has three beautiful girls now!! Do you listen to AVALON - they have a beautiful song that you should share with your friends I think it is called glory baby. Have a great day :) love your work

Olivia M. said...

The card is adorable and here's to hoping your prayers are answered.

Emily said...

Karen said...

It will happen in God's timing. Keep the faith. Cute card!!

Jessica said...

Praying for you that you'll be blessed with a little one! Hugs!!

Joann said...

Hang tough, things will happen when the time is right.

Dee said...

It's wonderful to have friends that understand you and you all can support each other. Keep the faith - you are correct about Gods plan, it's better than anything we can plan ourselves. Prayers for you and your friends :)

jill said...

Hope your wishes come true. Ilove your color choice. Jill S

BloomingPink said...

Wished I looked or felt like a hot mama when I was pregnant.

Instead, I felt like a water-filled balloon, on the verge of busting! (I retained LOTS of water).

StampinCathy said...

Beautiful card! Stay strong... it'll happen!

dclouser said...

Keep the faith - your hope is in the Lord and He will never disappoint you in the long term. Your card will be greatly appreciated by whoever receives it and it may just be YOU!

Tammy said...

Prayers to you Heather, I'm so sorry you are having problems. I know several people who had the same sort of issues, and I know it sounds cliche, but it does all happen it God's time. Not that that probably helps right now. Hugs to you, and God's blessings.

Erika M. said...

I feel your pain - I miscarried almost two years ago. No luck so far! I love your card!

Lori a.k.a. eeyorestayl said...

Heather, I am where you are right now. We have been trying for almost 3 years. It just hasn't happened, but our recent rededication of our lives to Christ has made me see that it will all be done in HIS time. HUGS to you!!! Will pray for you and your husband.

Jacque B said...

Good luck to you & your husband--God does have a perfect plan for you!

quilter said...

Thank you for sharing your heart with us today--just think there are about 70 of us already saying a prayer for you. Your project is really cute.

Jennifer said...

Hoping that you get a sweet baby soon.

Rhonda said...

The Lords timing is always PERFECT. We may want certain thing/items when we want and this may not be when the Lord would like us to have. Just know...the Lord hears or prayers and he definitely knows what's in our hearts...and He knows what we need and when we need it. :)

Great great!

Jess said...

Hang in there Heather! I know firsthand what a difficult thing infertility is. We tried for over four years, with multiple fertility treatments, and finally got our little miracle via one shot at IVF. Isaac is now 17 months old. Hugs and prayers for you, my dear. It was so difficult for us to just let go and know that God had a plan for us--hold tight to your faith in HIM. He DOES have a plan for you!!!

Stephanie Wright said...

Cute cards. I hope very soon you're holding very own precious bundle in your arms. They're worth the wait.

Ravengirl said...

Your card is very cute! Hang in there! It took us 3 1/2 years to get pregnant. It is well worth the wait!!!

Shemaine said...

Whoohoo mama, what a HOT card!

Cheri Howard said...

I'll keep you in my prayers. I know how you feel - in 10 years, my hubby and I haven't been able to get pregnant, either. But you are right that God has a plan for it all!

Sweet card, Heather!

Pam said...

Goodluck with your dreams...beautiful card!

MrsETaylor said...

I really like the stamp set. Sending warm wishes your way

Audrey said...

Don't give up hope. Sometimes by trying too hard will make conceiving more difficult. Enjoy your time with your hubby. By the way, that's a lovely card.

andrea said...

**hugs** my friends and family are going through the same things...my prayers to you all!

Emily said...

Lol, cute card. It cracks me up.

Mary said...

Don't give up! My husband and I tried for just over 3 years before it happened and we were in infertility clinic also. I think we decided that Long Island Ice Teas was the magic drug!LOL...In other words you have to relax and not keep it in the forefront of your mind...The Lord will decided when the timing is right...give Him all the pieces of your Heart and Trust in Him.
P.S It also happened while we were in the adoption process! God Bless you!

scrappypug said...

love the card and sending all good wishes your way.

KindredEsprit said...

love the pink and brown colour combo.

Heather Brown said...

Love this card, praying for God's timing for you and your friends. Thinking of you!!

SOINSPIRED said...

Heather: I think I've shared this with you before, but if not, we went through seven years of infertility. We were in the middle of adoption procedures when we found out we were pregnant. Our children are now 14 and 12.I know what you are going through. I'll be praying for you sweet girl!
