Terry and Gerard have been richly blessed by 3 amazing children. Baylor “The Baker” (11), Benjamin “The Builder” (9), and Bria “The Beauty Queen” (6). From the beginning, Terry and Gerard felt like they would have 3-4 children. When child number 3 was “in development” the sense was it would be a BOY but they were blessed with whom Gerard refers to as his “Celebrity Baby”...Bria! As time moved on and the window was closing, discussions of one more child would take place…very CASUAL discussions. These discussions got a little more serious as Baylor and Benjamin expressed a desire for a baby brother (Bria was indifferent because she was the Beauty Queen). So, Gerard and Terry agreed that 2012 was the year. If nothing happened in 2012, then they would be DONE!
Well, in December of 2012, during a family prayer time the children began praying sincerely about a baby brother. This wasn’t the first time the prayer was made but the intensity put a “Fear of God” in Terry and Gerard causing them to reconsider their previous plan. So, 2013 begins and 6 months later… no new announcement. At this point Terry and Gerard are letting the children know it may not be God’s plan for a baby brother. Then SUDDENLY… in early August... a DARK CLOUD came over Terry… NAUSEA, FATIGUE, THE TEST… Guess what?
WE’RE HAVING A BABY!
Ok, so the first part of the prayer was answered but would it be a boy or girl? Everyone in the house was hoping for a Boy (Bria was a little indifferent now that her royal status could be threatened) but it would take a few months to find out. Well, it took those months for DARKNESS TO LIFT. Gerard was no longer a Single Dad and Terry was back in motion. Then the day came to find out the gender. Well…. the second part of the prayer was fulfilled… A BABY BOY!
