My first appointment was in early June. For those that have seen their child's heartbeat on an ultrasound machine, you might understand how I felt, but perhaps only those that have experience loss will understand the amazement of it. So often, I've only seen an empty sac or just nothing. On that day, I saw the fingerprint of God in that little heartbeat. Life. So fragile. So fleeting. So precious. I don't understand the miracle of cells forming to create a heart... and then start beating to create sustained life but God does- and for Him to be in control of that is greater than anything man could ever create or invent.
I know that pregnancy is a possibility and not a promise of things to come but each day is one day closer to having Baby #3 join our family.
And yes... we will be finding out the gender:-)
Never has there been and never again
Will there be another you
Fashioned by God's hand and perfectly planned
To be just who you are
And what He's been creating
Since the first beat of your heart
Is a living, breathing
Priceless work of art
