Safe and sound in Ohio

Well, we got here safely on Friday night. It was a LONG drive. We had a hard time getting anywhere. But after about 8 hours (it will usually take 5), we pulled into our new driveway. Things are going well now. We have most things unpacked, but it just takes forever. I can only work for a few hours at a time before my swollen ankles start aching. Today, Jamin wanted me to go take a nap for a while, so I slept for 3 hours. I have to learn to pace myself. :) But we're almost finished. I think by Friday, or at least by Monday we will be totally unpacked. I am longing for that day. I will post those pictures later.

The church people have been so sweet here. They have showered us with food, and at church they all talk to us and tell us how glad they are that we are here. We are really blessed with a close, loving church family. We are excited to get comfortable and find our place with them.

I know this is a short update, but there will be more later. Right now, please pray that we can find a dr. and hospital. I have a few places I want to try, but tomorrow I'm hoping to have it settled. Thank you all for your comments and your prayers!

So happy you made it safe and sound! I'll sure be praying about a dr. for you and the baby. I know that you are probably anxious, but I also know without a doubt that the Lord will take such good care of you. I experienced the same situation with Marshall, and the Lord blessed beyond measure!

Praying you find a doctor/hospital. One year ago, I was in the same searching mode...1 month 'til baby came and in a new state. I found that I had a choice of 2 doctors and 1 hospital, an hour away. Through a very anxious time in new place, the Lord gave us wonderful care and a memorable event (in a good way :) ) The Lord will take care of you. :)
