this tuesday will be two weeks from the time we found out that our baby had some problems. this wednesday will be the two week mark from the high resolution ultrasound that confirmed a few soft markers* that suggested a trisomy13 diagnosis.
our friends and family have surrounded us with love and prayers- the only way we have gotten through these past two weeks.
i've had such a swirling of thoughts and emotions. it's been tough- but the reminder that this earth is not our home and this life isn't the final experience our souls will have has helped greatly.
the baby kicks give me hope. i offer praise to God with each small movement.
this journey will be tough- but i pray that it brings my family closer together and offers lessons to us on the beautiful gift that is life.

*cleft pallet, cleft lip, club foot, fluid pockets on the brain- i think they stopped there and there were more markers. next ultrasound i plan on asking for the whole story and bringing a notebook for jotting things down.


  1. Elizabeth when are you due? This will unboubtely bring you closer as a family and closer to God. You will grow in Faith and bring you closer to God in so many ways. God choose you to be Jedidiah's Mother bc He trusted in you to give him the life God has already planned out for him! And you are right this is not our final destination...eternally in heaven is where we all want to be! God loves us and will guuide you to make all the right decisions not only for Jedidiah but for all your children! How blessed he is to be surrounded by such love every day of his life so far, how blessed Jedadiah is to already know and experience /god's love from his Mom, Dad and siblings and how blessed are each one of your children to have the relationship they have w/Jedadiah already! You have provided such an amazing journey for all of them already Elizabeth bc God knew you would!!!

  2. thank you! it's already so amazing that he has already touched our lives so deeply. we have been truly blessed and continue to bathe in the graces God is pouring out upon us.
