I’m so excited about this journey, y’all! But I have fears…

I could ramble on and on about all my fears but basically they come down to 2 main fears:

getting a son whose name is Matthews.

getting a daughter whose name is Kara.

My name is pronounced Car-uh and I spend more time than I care to telling people how to say my name. So getting a child whose name is Kar-uh is a huge fear as silly as it sounds.

My last name is Matthews. How could I explain that one? “Hello- meet my son Matthew Matthews. Sorry, his dad and I aren’t very creative.”

Y’all- those are my fears. And they are real! I have had dreams about them.


Every time I pray for this child I see 2 distinct things. *let me clarify that I don’t walk around saying I have “visions from God”. That’s not what this is*

I literally close my eyes to pray and I see a brown skinned boy almost instantly in my head. He is probably about 2 and I can only see the back of his head. My head playing games with me? Possibly ? God preparing me? Possibly… I dunno. But I see it.

The other thing that pops into my head every time I pray is Jere holding a little girl. So clearly I am not someone who needs to be a visionary for the Lord because I don’t even see the same thing over and over– but, those are my two “visions” if that’s what you even call them.

It makes me excited and makes me happy! Little kiddo– wherever you are– we are coming for you!

Thank you for being a part of this journey,
