Welcome! Nuestra Casa Es Su Casa ...Our house is your house
A glimpse into the life of Daniel and Jaynee Lockwood and their 12 precious blessings. Thank you for visiting; we pray that what we share here may always bring glory to our wonderful God and Saviour. May you praise the Lord with us for the great things He has done and continues to do as we serve Him sharing the gospel here in the little town of Cuidad Insurgentes, BCS Mexico. He alone is good and faithful!

I'm leaving for the hospital in about 6 hours...
And will return with Little Lockwood #11~ and hopefully a name for this little treasure! :)
Thank you to all who prayed for little Nehemiah. He's still not 100%, but did not throw up today or run a fever and ate and drank! He's still filling his diaper quite regularly, but looks like he's on the mend. Praise the Lord for hearing and and His grace in answering!
I had to go to the hospital this morning to have another blood test to check my iron. I took our 3 girls with me and the boys stayed home with Daddy to work. When I walked in, a nurse said, "One, two, three...and another one on the way....FOUR....WOW!" The other doctors and nurses that know our family said, "Oh, they have way more than that...how many do you have?" I smiled and said, "Eleven with this one (pointing to my belly)." The nurse did not believe me, but the others assured her I was telling the truth. She then said, "Don't you know how dangerous that is?" I smiled again and said, "Well, why don't you tell her that (pointing to Susannah)...she's our ninth" They all laughed and said they couldn't argue with that. :)
Although the hospital service/facility hasn't changed much (this will be my 3rd delivery there), I'm encouraged that as the staff has gotten to know our family, they seem to have soften...rather than chewing me out all the time, they often say how beautiful it is to have so many children. I pray that the Lord will give me an opportunity to share Him each time I'm there. I've got my Bible and tracts packed :) Thank you so much for your prayers!
WE'LL UPDATE AS A FAMILY OF 13 SOON!! :)
