Baby On The Way!!!

Posted by on Sep 6, 2012 in Family Updates, Featured, Photo Galleries | 78 comments

One of the most precious earthly gifts has been entrusted to us—A child! We are so excited to be expecting our first little one and are praising the Lord for the gift of life. Children really belong to the Lord, but they are entrusted to us for a time.

Questions are buzzing through our minds as we seek the Lord about what we should name it, how we need to prepare, and what it means to be good parents. We are so blessed to have been raised by parents who love the Lord and did their best to raise us in a way that pleases God. In essence, the fact that Priscilla is alive today is a miracle, being that she was born premature and had to be kept at the hospital for some time after her birth. Her parents were strongly advised not to have her because the child right before her was born with spina bifida. Today, you would never know anything of it because health and ability is unhindered.

Following David’s arrival, there were five healthy siblings born, but his mom also had four miscarriages as well. Two of the precious babies miscarried were right after David. David is fifth born and if his parents succumbed to the pressure of the day and only had four children, life would be totally different. We are so grateful that they viewed children as a blessing and not as a burden.

Regardless of what the Lord brings to us, we are super excited because we know that life is a miracle and we are grateful to have a part in raising this little one to love Jesus. Watch David’s excitement on the day we found out we were expecting!

  35. Congrats !!! What a wonderful gift :)

  36. Congrats!!

  37. Congratulations on the new marriage and the new baby…it’s nice you got married but why did you put your wedding on TLC? In my opinion, the Kellers already suffered from a lack of privacy at Josh and Anna’s wedding, and I’m sure that many involved looked forward to not dealing with that again. Anna was marrying Josh, so of course their wedding would be televised, but I don’t really see why yours was..was it just to get comped for a big wedding? Each to his own I guess, but it just didn’t seem fair to many involved (including the two of you in some ways).

    • yeah, i agree…

    • Rebekah, I do not mean to show you disrespect even though your comment was extremely disrespectful. What David & Priscilla do in their lives, regardless of it being private or public is THEIR decision and not for anyone to judge. How do you know who suffered what at whom’s wedding? Do you know them personally? Did they confide in you personally? Words can be such hurtful weapons, but people like David & Priscilla will not respond negatively to your negativity. They are a God loving couple and many are thankful and blessed to witness their love and faith in the Lord. You last sentence explains your negativity…envy. Perhaps you would benefit from knowing the Bible and our Lord better?! We’ll all pray for you. This site is called “David loves Priscilla” … let’s keep it loving please.

  38. Congratulations David and Priscilla! How exciting! Thanks for sharing ya’lls joy and excitement with us. You both are going to be GREAT parents!!! What a lucky child to have parents like ya’ll!!! I will be praying for you both and for Priscilla to have a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery! God Bless you guys! Keep lookinng up!
    Don’t Quit on the Lord!
    Catherine K ( A BIG FAN ) :-)

    • Wow! Praise the Lord, this is exciting news, God bless you as He expands your ministry!

  39. Congratulations!!!! I wish you both the very best. You guys are going to be great parents! I loved your wedding and I thank you for sharing the great news with us! God bless you and your family!

  50. Hi David and Priscilla! You might not remember, but my family and I met both of you during your separate trips down to Malaysia for the Basic Seminar and ATI Conference in 2010. Just got to know that you guys were married yesterday and found your site today. Both your lives are radiant displays of God’s greatness and love… Simply overjoyed at the news and can’t wait for more updates! Thanks be to God for this great blessing and may there be many more to come! Keeping all three of you in our prayers!

  51. first off. congratulations. pregnancy is a wonderful things. you are brining on the NEXT generation. and thank you for choosing to be pro-life.

    2nd. don’t worry about miscarraiages or any things else (like disorders). your child will be perfect just they way it is. it is created in the image and likeness of GOD, it’s creator

  52. Will you be finding out the gender of your baby? I know friends in various religions who have left it a surprise until the baby was born and then had a naming ceremony including a blessing. Another couple I know chose to wait because they said there are few surprises left and this is a surprise they could wait for.

    • Sounds like some great ideas! We are looking forward to finding out and as soon as we know something we will definately pass the word along via our website. Stay tuned!!! .-)

  53. Children are the best blessing. Congratulations. I will pray for your wife and baby.

  54. Many congratulations to you both. I’m sure you willbe wonderful parents. I found your website via the Duggar’s website or it could have been Josh and Anna’s. Your wedding was beautiful. Love and blessings xxxxx

  55. WOW Congratulations!!!!! I’m sooo excited for you both!!!! God Bless

  56. God bless the Wallers! So incredibly happy for you. Watched your wedding recently ( which was an absolute joy). It is wonderful to see a couple who puts God first in their lives and walks the walk! Much love to both of you! Mindy.

  57. Congratulations David and Priscilla!! When is this precious little one due to arrive?

    • We are looking forward to receiving this little one in early March

  58. Congratulations again you two! Thanks for sharing with us earlier at the cabin! You both will make awesome parents! Keep us updated! Luv ya! Al and Bev

  59. Such wonderful news, congratulations…at 24 and my husband 26, We are expecting our 4th baby at the end of Feb, so will be praying we both have safe deliveries, and healthy babies!!

    Good Luck and keep in touch : )

    God Bless

  60. Priscilla I just saw this post and I wanted to say Congratulations!!! Miss seeing your smiling face at church. So happy for the both of you and will be praying for you and baby.

  61. Congrats!! So happy for you both :)

  62. CONGRATULATIONS David and Priscilla. You will make great parents.

  63. I just thought of something: what a blessing for Priscilla to have so many Godly and wise mothers that she can turn to for advice. Carrying and birthing a first child can be scary for a first time mommy. Even if she’s been around other women, it’s different when it’s your own. May God bring the wisdom you need no sooner than you need it! You both are going to be great, loving, and Godly parents. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for your family!

  64. Congratulations! :)

  65. Hey.When is the baby due !

    • Thanks for asking! Our baby is do in March!

  66. Congratulations David and Priscilla!

    I will be praying for Priscilla and the baby.

    I hope all goes well :)

    Love, Cassidy

  67. Is there a letter in mind that you are going to name your precious child! I am excited for both of you!
    Congrats! :)

  68. I am so happy for you both.

  69. Congrats congrats!!! I know it’s late but Congrats!!!!
    Christina

  70. Congrats Priscilla and David! There is one thing about this blog post that confuses me though. Was Priscilla’s older sibling born with Spina Bifida or was the baby born before her in the hospital born with Spina Bifida? While I’m pro-life in all cases, as a woman with Spina Bifida, it is especially troubling to hear that mothers are told abort or abandon their babies with Spina Bifida and other birth defects. Even babies that are not expected to live should be loved, but thanks to medical advances, children and adults with Spina Bifida can lead very productive lives serving God and His children.

  71. Just seen your Australia update and saw how far through the pregnancy she was and realised I forgot to congratulate you on it!

    So congratulations and I hope mummy and baby stay happy, healthy and holy throughout the pregnancy! ;)

    My blessings and love to all three of you!

    Let the Lord watch over you,

    Rebekah
