If you didn't read Monday's blog, you'll want to before reading this one.
Today's rescan did not go very well. Baby Zoe is only a few millimeters in size, and the overall growth from last week's scan wasn't enough to consider this a "viable pregnancy". The doctor told us there is a 99.5% chance this will be a miscarriage. Needless to say, it was devastating news, but we remain hopeful. Here's why...
I recently heard someone refer to having children as a prophetic voice into the world. As followers of Christ, we look at this broken world and must decide whether or not we want to bring children into it. When a husband and wife make the decision to have a child, they are speaking prophetically into this world with a hopeful voice. That faith and hope lies in God's ability to redeem us and restore His Kingdom.
We will continue to pray for baby Zoe. I don't care what small percentage the chance is of survival, as long as there is any chance whatsoever I will continue to fight and pray for my baby. Should God perform a miracle here and I hold my baby in my arms, I could not bear to think I didn't give her my all when the chips were down. If she doesn't make it out of the womb, I can be comforted to know I did my best and trusted God.
We want to thank you all for your prayers. Hundreds of people literally all over the world have been praying, and we can feel it. Prayer is the foundation of all we are and all we do, especially in times like these. Thank you again.
