Baby Gone Home

Our Baby Has Gone Home Early

So we had our 1st (and last) Baby visit Friday/Monday. I had hoped to post ultrasound pictures and announce to all of you our friends and family that we were having a baby.

Unfortunately I have the sadness of knowing that for whatever His reasons, God has decided to bring our baby home early. After the year we have had, when we found out we were pregnant in early November we were ecstatic. We thought This was God's miracle ending for our year. It isn't.

Friday afternoon (Dec 19th) Jenny began having cramps, so we went to the Dr. They did an ultrasound and we were able to see our baby and hear the heartbeat. They said that a number of things were smaller then would be expected, but that we would just have to wait and see. There was nothing we could or couldn't do that would have any affect they said. We prayed, the only thing we know to do. Sunday morning God took our baby back home. Monday we were back at the doctor and they confirmed it, and talked us through some of our questions etc. According to them, Jenny is healthy, and should have no complications. This is a minor blessing but doesn't really make anything better.

All this year bad things have happened, but God has provided. After each night, there has been morning; I don't know what could be more joyous then this; but I know that God will continue to provide for us and take care of us. I just don't understand how or what.

Jenny is looking for a sense of normalcy, and would prefer to not talk about it at the moment. I ask that you would honor this wish and try to keep conversation to normal topics :)

I know all of you will assist in praying for our family and the plans that God has laid for us. Thank you all for all of your support in this time.
