Cling to what is Good

"Cling to what is good." -Romans 12:9

We received news the other day of the full results of the genetic testing of our baby. Results confirmed the diagnosis of Trisomy 18 (T18). This is difficult news, but there was still some encouragement with the arrival of this news.

The midwife was able to tell us that our baby is a little girl. This is very encouraging for a couple reasons. First of all, we already have two beautiful girls that are a joy to have, so we look forward to having another one! Secondly, the chances of survival of a baby with T18 increase dramatically if the baby is a girl.

So we are thankful to the Lord for this news. We are clinging to what is good like a life preserver in the middle of a storm--not always comfortable to ride, but at least it keeps you afloat. Praise to the Lord for his hand at work.

Thank you all for praying and holding us up. We appreciate all the encouragement.
