Chad Paine, and his beautiful bride Erin, are expecting again! I am absolutely thrilled for them, and I will be on a mission to pray for them constantly in the hopes that they deliver a healthy and thriving precious angel baby. As I am writing this, my own sweet little darling is softly snoring in his crib at the foot of my bed…..what a gift children are, and I think Chad and Erin will make the best parents 🙂
Casey and I were watching back-to-back episodes of Bringing Up Bates the other day, and seeing the sadness that seemed to just emanate from both Chad and Erin over their miscarriages was simply more than I could bear, and the tears just started flowing. Casey always laughs at me, hands me a tissue, or cuddles me when I get really worked up. Family and children…..and a lot of children at that………are a large part of the Bates’ and Paines’ lives. Why wouldn’t Chad and Erin assume that getting pregnant and giving birth to a healthy little boy or girl would be as natural as breathing?
They both seem to be just the sweetest things, and they appear to adore children. Erin displays loads of patience while teaching even the smallest of things, and genuinely appears to enjoy spending time with her little siblings. Chad gets the prize for ‘gentle and loving adoration’ in how he treats and deals with his wife………I think it is safe to say that he will carry that over into his parenting.
They have a lot of people praying for the little one that is hopefully growing safely inside Erin’s belly. Chad broke the news on his blog, which you can read here: http://chadsperspective.blogspot.com/2015/01/our-little-baby.html He said because the pregnancy is deemed a high risk one, they waited awhile before announcing their happy news I am not sure how far along she is, as he didn’t say, but I would guess that means she is farther along than the first trimester….we will just wait and see when Kelly puts it on her blog over at http://thebatesfamily.com/family-updates/
Praise God, and Congratulations Chad and Erin……the very best wishes and the most fervent of prayers are coming your way from my family!!
