Party of five... Table for four

As many of you know we lost a sweet baby December 21, 2007. Although, I was only pregnant 9 weeks I very much loved that baby... and still do. I have felt like a mother of two since then, even though only one baby fills my arms. Well, although we certainly do not deserve it, God has decided to bless us with another child! I decided from the moment I found out I was pregnant that I was going to love this baby , whether it be for 9 weeks or 90 years. When I went for my first Doctors appt. it appeared that I may not have long to love this baby. The baby was not growing as it should be and had a slow heart rate. So I went home and prepared myself for the worst and prayed for the best. Well, let me tell you, when I went back for another appt. I almost fell off the table when I saw a much bigger baby and a fast heartbeat! I couldn't believe it... could it be this baby would live and be my miracle baby?!?!? Well, the initial prognosis was 50/50 survival chance, and while the updated ultrasound took us to a much higher percentage we still are not "out of the woods". The way I see it.... This baby is a fighter and we serve a loving God and I know he is going to take care of us and my sweet baby. I am just so excited for everyday that passes and I am believing that this miracle is going to grow to term! Baby is 10 weeks, 3 days, YIPPEE only 29 weeks, 4 days to go!
So the family is growing.. 1 big boy, 1 angel baby, and one miracle baby.
Whew.. and yes... all this while Brendan has been out of town - my emotions are spent!
Please pray for us and our sweet miracle and thank you for being such wonderful friends to us!
