Mixed Emotions

Through our journey with Baby Jack, we've been following the blogs of other families that have had babies with anencephaly. It appears that quite a few try for another child soon afterwards. With the success of many couples, some just weeks after, we were optimistic that we would have the same luck. Weeks went by, then months with no success. Then... maybe...maybe... it appears that were pregnant. We were so excited, but hesitant to tell anyone till we knew we felt it was safe to without getting allot of hopes up for nothing. Then after about 8wks, something wasn't right, in the middle of the night Sarah awoke with pain, and minutes later, we knew it had aborted. Needless to say, we were dissappointed.

Every night when the kids go to bed and we say our prayers, we pray for all the people we know who are trying to start or expand their family. We wish their was a way to make the prayers come true.

"Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you." Luke 11:9

"Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven." Matthew 18:19

"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Matthew 21:22

A few months go by, and towards the end of March, after several tests, Success!! Nov 27th 2011 is the expectd due date. As excited as we are, we stil hope and pray everyday that others prayes will be answered.
We have a 4D ultrasound scheduled for the end of May, and hopefully we'll get to see a healthy, perfect little baby.
