20 weeks down and 20 weeks to go! :)

It looks like our little Honarjomand is a baby boy... we can't wait to welcome him into this world!!

Praised be Thou, O Lord my God! Graciously grant that this infant be fed from the breast of Thy tender mercy and loving providence and be nourished with the fruit of Thy celestial trees. Suffer him not to be committed to the care of anyone save Thee, inasmuch as Thou, Thyself, through the potency of Thy sovereign will and power, didst create and call him into being. There is none other God but Thee, the Almighty, the All-Knowing.

Lauded art Thou, O my Best Beloved, waft over him the sweet savors of Thy transcendent bounty and the fragrances of Thy holy bestowals. Enable him then to seek shelter beneath the shadow of Thy most exalted Name, O Thou Who holdest in Thy grasp the kingdom of names and attributes. Verily, Thou art potent to do what Thou willest, and Thou art indeed the Mighty, the Exalted, the Ever-Forgiving, the Gracious, the Generous, the Merciful.

Seems like I only post once a year now!

November has rolled around again, and Nima and I celebrated 6 yrs and my 30th birthday all in one weekend. Next week is Nima's 31st birthday, but that we will most likely keep as simple as possible.

Here is a cake that my friend Lindsey made for our anniversary. It was very special and thoughtful.

Many of you our wondering what has been going on with our fertility treatment. Well we are in the midst of IVF and hopefully, as soon as we hear good news, we will definitely share it.

Prayers are most welcome :)

Five years of marriage!

Today marks our five year anniversary.

It's been a wonderful and loving journey up until now. Sometimes joyful, sometimes hard... but most of all trying to continually help each other to serve humanity in more effective ways.

A lot has happened since the day we got married.

To sum it all up ...

-got married in Nottingham, England
-went back to Haifa, Isreal to finish our term of service
-after 9 months brought Nima back to Canada with me
-did my Montessori teacher training program
-Nima ultimately found work at a really great company called Prollenium
-lived with my parents for two years
-moved into our own house in Newmarket, Ontario
-have lived in our house for over two years and serving along side our wonderful Baha'i community in Newmarket
-worked as a teacher at Montessori for Children for two years
-currently working for the Department of External Affairs at the Baha'i National Centre of Canada

Many of our friends and family might be wondering why we don't have children yet. To be honest, we've been trying for over two years and have recently found out that we have some fertility issues that we need to deal with. This is what we are currently going through... so please keep us in your prayers. What we are trying to learn from all of this is what detachment means for us and how we can truly submit our will to the Will of God. Some might be surprised as to why I'm sharing such private information over the internet. Well the reality is that many couples are going through this. At least in Canada, the statistics are 1 out of every 6 couples. That is not a joke!! I've seen many of these people with my own eyes. And if this entry might help another couple feel less alone in this process than my intention has been fulfilled.

July 12, 2009

On July 12, 2009, my beautiful mother got married to a wonderful British man!! I guess like mother like daughter :)

The days before, the day of, and some days after were filled with laughter, joy and utter happiness for not only the union of two souls, but the union of two families.

I love the Towfigh's and feel so happy to be part of their family.
The only sad thing is that I have to say goodbye to my mom as she departs for England to live with her new husband.
