Hello everyone. Tomorrow morning we have an ultrasound with our perinatologist which may or may not give us more information about Ethan's heart, brain, and other organs. I've been praying all week for God to help us go into this appointment without anxiety. So far I've been feeling pretty good, and have been trying to remain hopeful about things. We knew when we decided to continue the pregnancy that this would be what we would face: appointments that we may dread for fear of hearing more bad news. However, we also know that we are full of faith, and we have said in our prayers that we hope God can fill us with a sense of acceptance no matter what happens because His will is being done. About a week ago at work, I noticed that one of my co-workers had a small piece of paper taped to her computer with the following Bible passage:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
It was almost ironic that I saw this. This is what I've been striving to do for the past 4 weeks, and am continuing to do. Please join us in praying that God will help guard our hearts and that we are able to face whatever comes our way tomorrow. I will be sure to update you with what we learn.
