It’s A…..


Thank you all for your prayers on our behalf!  Relief and joy only scratch the surface of what we’re feeling right now.  After the sonographer spent 45 minutes measuring and looking at every tiny inch of our little fella, the doctor came in casually to say, “Well everything looks great!  I’ve been through all the footage and see nothing that would give me cause for concern.  You’re having a healthy baby boy.  Any questions?”

That was it!  No “brace yourself” conversations, no sitting down and going over details.  Just “Looks good!”  WHAT A GIFT!  As soon as I heard, “it’s a boy” during the exam, my heart skipped a bit.  We’ve been blessed with a healthy girl but would we be able to have a son who was healthy?  Praise be to God Almighty for His kindness and favor!

So come this June, we’ll be a family of four.  Dad, Mom, Eliana & Little Mister.  Now the epic name search begins…

    Congratulations, wonderful news. When it comes to the epic search, the one ‘boy rule’ is that the name can not get him beat up in kindergarten. I would give you an example, but with my luck, it’s the name of your favorite uncle.

  6. Such great news!!

    I do, though, ALREADY, think of you as a family of 4… even though Isaac is in heaven and not here with you. Just wanted you to know 🙂

    I will be curious to hear about your name choice for the little man! You and I have emailed before… we have a son named Isaac who passed away, and like you, were then blessed with a healthy baby girl who we also named Eliana!! We have a boy name picked out should we get pregnant with a little guy… curious to see if you guys pick the same one we’re thinking of!

    Congrats, again, on the great news. So happy for a flawless report! God is gracious!

  7. Patience, I don’t even know you (I found your blog through Corinne, who I went to HS with) and I am seriously tearing up for you! What an amazing gift for a healthy little boy!
