As a mom of two boys, I am often asked if we are going to try for a girl. We do want more kids, but I can honestly say that I don’t have an opinion on whether or future child or children are boys or girls.
I am so grateful to have had two boys in a row, especially since there is a three-year age gap (many of you know that I suffered two miscarriages in 2020). I think a three-year gap would have been hard if we had had a boy and then a girl, but I am hopeful that my boys will be best buds. My husband has a brother who is five years younger, and they did a lot together growing up and are now even closer as adults.
I’m not pregnant, but when we do decide to have another baby, I would be thrilled to have another son, or two. More brothers would only make the bond between our boys stronger. And I would be equally as thrilled to have a daughter, or more than one. It would be very sweet to see my sons interact with a younger sister, or sisters. Whether we have all boys here on Earth or end up having a mix, we have two babies waiting for us in heaven, and we know for sure that one of them is a girl, so we already have a daughter who will be with us for eternity.
I can truly say that I am grateful that it’s not up to me to decide the combination of sons and daughters that we end up with. I can rely on God’s sovereignty to create the family that He knows is best for us.
