By God's grace and goodness we will be adding a baby to our family this coming October. When we first found out we were expecting, God spoke to my heart and said trust and believe and He said nothing is impossible with Me. Twelve weeks later we found out that the baby had excessive fluid in the brain, in the heart, behind the head and down the spine. Also, the baby's bowels are on the outside. A blood test revealed that the baby has trisomy 18, and extra chromosome #18 which many times leads to miscarriage by 20 weeks, or still birth at full term. If the baby survives the birth, he may only live a few hours. You can only imagine how this news affected Matt and I after having two miscarriages in two years. In that moment, God reminded me that nothing is impossible with Him. Today we give God all praise and glory that He has sustained our baby's life for 15 weeks. We go for our next genetic ultrasound this Friday the 12th.
We are asking all our family in Christ to please join us in prayer for the healing of our baby. We believe God can do the impossible and He has called us to trust and believe. Please pray for a miracle for our baby. Please put us on your church's prayer list and pray for us in your Bible study groups. Thank you to all who read this post and will pray for us. We could not walk this journey without you.
