Fearfully and Wonderfully Made...


Ahhh yeah!!!!

We got to see this little person yesterday!!!

It was super exciting, because G and I thought I was going in for a normal appointment. I couldn't help but be thrilled to get a glimpse at this tiny bit of life. As happy as I was, I was also sad since my mom wasn't with me. She's been at all my ultrasounds with all of my babies, but we got tons of pics-so that was good.

We did find out what we're having and we're soooo thrilled!

I'd love to tell ya-but it ain't happening! We are announcing the sex next Saturday at Moosey's 4th birthday party! I'm dying to spill the beans so this is a great time to work on that self-control!

I was in awe the entire appointment. Ultrasounds never get old. Even when all they look like is a tiny gummy bear-my mommy heart just swoons.

Little B baby is only 8 oz, but in the pictures you would think you were looking at a full grown baby! He/she was kicking and moving all over the place. We even got a pic of some thumb sucking! How amazing is that???

As exciting as seeing this precious person after so many weeks, my heart began to ache a bit. As we were sitting rejoicing over each tiny finger and and gentle movement-there were women who were sitting in a completely different office terminating the very same life.

I can't wrap my head around it.

At only 8 ounces, my child can kick, suck her/his thumb, and do flips. Arms and legs are present. Even tiny stomachs and bladders! Even more amazing is the ability to see the four chambers of the tiny little heart that beats like crazy inside of me!

How is that not a human?

How is that life not valuable?

How do you label that nothing more than "tissue"?

Why isn't America protecting these fragile and precious beings even more so than dolphins, chimps, or some exotic snake that kills you in 60 seconds?

This truly confuses me. 

After having the scare of almost losing this baby at 5 weeks-I felt the slight sting of that of a mother who has lost a child she's loved for years.

I can't imagine ripping apart the almost fully formed baby that dances inside of me now.

Don't believe that abortion is an epidemic in America?

There are over a million abortions performed each year. I've read a few places that approx. 86% of those are done out of convenience, NOT because of birth defects or because the mother's life is in danger.

What's worse? I've also read that some have estimated that around 41% of pregnancies in NY end in abortion.

This makes my heart ache so much. Not just for the children-but for the mothers too. I've known and read about many who have aborted their baby only to carry much guilt and remorse for the rest of their lives. I know this is an area, and a group of people I need to pray for more. They need to know that we love them just as much as the unborn life. 


Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:13-16
