A ray of light amidst the storm...

God is so good!

The preliminary results of the amniocentesis fish test have come in. This test is for the presence of extra chromosomal 21, 18, 13, & the gender chromosome. This included severe syndromes such as Downs & Edwards.

Well, praise the Lord, the test came back as NORMAL!!! What a blessing & truly an unexpected one with the severity of his heart condition. Any one of these extra chromosomes would have compromised his eligibility to have the necessary surgeries once he's born. We will have the full report by the end of this week, which screens the full spectrum of chromosome abnormalities. But what a step in the right direction!!! After several weeks of hearing bad & worse news with every doctor's visit, this certainly is a blessing!

Thank you again for your many prayers & support. To God be all the glory & praise!

Patience and Jordan,

I am so thankful that God has brought the two of you into my life. You are such an inspiration to me in your life styles, your marriage, and your daily walks with the Lord. It is so inspirational to walk through this situation with you and know that you have put your full faith in God. Sometimes God chooses to deliver us from situations, and sometimes he chooses to walk us through. Your pregnancy and everything you are going through is a perfect example of how God carries us through situations so that in the end, the miracle that will be your son can only be explained as God's handiwork. God's grace IS enough and his plan is greater than ours.
