Not even an hour later Misti calls and says that a family is interested in looking at the house. Since we did not have the written offer from the other lady yet, we decided to let them look at the house. They were coming around 6pm that evening. about lunch time I took a shower and was in my room, and I heard a lady in my house. She came down the hall and so I opened my door and it was a Realtor. She didn't know that I was home, and she came to show that family the house. They decided to come and see it early instead of 6pm without letting Misti know. (Scared me to death!) I asked them to give me a few minutes and then left so they could look around. What I didn't know, was that the first Realtor that was dropping off the offer, showed up at the same time this family did (she was supposed to be there early that morning with the offer and called Misti several times saying that she was going to be late with it. Just couldn't get to our house.) . She got angry and didn't leave the offer. Called Misti and was very ugly to her.....
During this time the family was looking at the house and loved it. They were willing to give us exactly what we were asking for it. Well, it's history now! They got the house! June 27th. And they were such a nice couple!
We were just blown away at how God moved in this process. We had enough left over after paying off our house to pay off our car note as well, and still had several thousand left.
We moved into Joel and Teresa's guest apartment (one room). Stephen applied to Southwestern and was accepted.
On July 30th, at 8:50am, Stephen left with Joel to do some work at the
food pantry. 10 minutes later, as I was laying in bed, my water broke. I had no cell phone reception so I couldn't call him. I got our bags, added some last minute things to it, loaded it in the jeep, and drove myself to the hospital. I called Stephen as soon as I got to hwy 69. He was at the hospital when I got there. I was already at a 4 and quickly dilated. I wasn't feeling any pain yet. Around 5pm they checked and I was at a 10. Pushed for almost 3 hrs but wouldn't come. His head had turned and so he got lodged. I had to have a C-section. Jacob Paul Jansen was born at 8:20pm and weighed 8.1 lbs What a joy it has been to be a mother. But, I do miss sleep. :)
We moved 2 1/2 weeks later to our new home here in Ft. Worth. That was the hardest thing I have ever done. and it took a while to get adjusted. Jacob had colic really bad. ( I take that back...colic is the hardest thing I have ever been through) I had to put him on a lactose free formula. and 4 days later it was like a totally different child. He's been sleeping through the night since he was 7wks old. That is a gift from the Lord.
