A break in the clouds

On the was home from our first ultrasound in Omaha, "love has come" by Mark Schultz came on the radio, and the first verse kinda sums it up.

Well, I know this life is filled with sorrow
And there are days when the pain just lasts and lasts
But I know there will come a day
When all our tears are washed away with a break in the clouds
His glory coming down and in that moment

As we were anticipating this day for weeks, we had prepared ourself for the worst. There was a chance that this baby could have anencephaly. As we knew the risk was there, deep down, we didn't know if we could handle it, we just kept praying and praying for a healthy baby.

At 10:40AM Friday, May 27th, we got to see, (as far as the Dr. could tell) a healthy, and perfect little baby. Granted this ultrasound was done at 14 weeks, a little earlier than most, and another is scheduled for 20 wks. We saw a complete skull, and a good forming brain. So far everything appears good and normal.

As excited we are, something happens once you lose a child, that forever changes how you view things. Weather it's friends who have been hoping to grow thir family, or another diagnosis of anencephaly. Everytime we hear or read their story, a piece of our heart goes out to them. We wish we could make the sorrow go away, but we can't.


  1. Congrats you guys!

    I wish you all the best as you travel through this pregnancy. It is such a strange and bittersweet path after losing a child.

    Keeping you and this new little one in my prayers!

  2. So glad to know there is a nice round head! Pregnancy forever changes after you lost a child.
