22 Weeks

"But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love." Psalm 33:18

God never fails us. My hope for Brayden is in Him; not my doctors. 
Yesterday was a day that brought me closer to God. I could feel God's grace all around. During my appointment, I had some powerful prayers going up for Brayden and I could feel every one of them. I have never know peace like this before. At the start of the ultrasound Brayden's heart rate was 120. This made me a little nervous at first, until we realized that he was asleep. Then, we saw (and I felt) Brayden make a big stretch. Apparently we disturbed the sweet angel's nap. From that point forward Brayden was wide awake and giving us a good show. We have a fantastic ultrasound technician that we see every week. She took time from her schedule yesterday to switch the ultrasound over to 4D. She just kept printing pictures for us because Brayden's face was so distinct and so darn cute! Needless to say, I have lots of pictures to put in Brayden's first album. During the ultrasound I said, "Ah, I can't wait to hold him." At that point my ultrasound tech started to cry. She then shared with Marcus and I that she lost a son when he was 6 years old. She also said that she  really feels for us and she doesn't understand why things like this happen. I ended up hugging and comforting her, which was a great change for me. I love caring for others and at times I'm not sure how to let people do the same for me. I ended up suggesting books that have helped me and talking about heaven with her. It was great for me to be able to do that. We did not receive any new news yesterday, which is actually a blessing. Brayden is our little fighter and I think he knows that we are all fighting and pulling for him.
Thank you for your continued prayers~

  1. God is so good! He can use your situation to share Christ with another grieving mother. What a blessing you are to allow God to use you. Brayden has already been used for the Kindgom in is sweet life. What a blessing he truly is.
