Second Child on the Way!

Jenn is in her first trimester. It was a little scary at first because we actually thought she was having a miscarriage. She had all the signs of a miscarriage and the doctor brought her in expecting that this was the case.

Earlier that morning I was in submission to God. Altough I couldn’t understand why he would allow a miscarriage, I had no choice but to accept what God gives us. Boy were we suprised when she came back with ultrasound pictures showing a the fetus at 3 weeks old, with a heart beating! It was a short time from submission to praise.

This experience really helped me understand how easy it can be for some people to discount the life of an embryo. At 3 weeks, we have no emotional connection and it doesn’t really feel like there’s a baby in the womb. I was sad, but I wasn’t broken like a father who lost a small child. It is hard to feel love for the life of an embryo. Our society has shown us by example with abortions and embrionic stem cell research such an easy decision. But the truth is, human life exists in an embryo, it just needs nurishment, protection and time to grow. Just like me and you.

Please pray for us and the health of our baby.
