Baby Groen's Test

May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will SHOUT for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests. Psalm 20:4-5

This verse jumped out at me on Wednesday night while I was doing my devotions. I knew going into the test on Thursday that no matter what we found out the God was going to be victorious and he was. Everything with the test went very well. They got all the pictures they needed even though Baby Groen was a wiggle worm. After the ultrasound the doctor looked over the pictures. The hardest part of the whole test was the waiting part. He finally came back in and said that everything looked great. They didn't see anything wrong and everything was working the way it should. He told us that unfortunately this test doesn't pick up any minor problems. That if there was any of them we wouldn't know until after the baby was born and checked out. He also said that what Lindsay had was a very rare thing. He said that this baby most likely wouldn't have the same problem. We walked away feeling relieved that everything is working and no problems. Thank you all for your prayers yesterday. We really felt them all and we were very relaxed and had ton's of peace.
As I was sitting here writing this post I was thinking of Lindsay and wishing she was here so that she would be able to hold her sister or brother. This picture came into mind and I knew I had to use it. This is my nephew Ethan Houston. (sorry Jul) Lindsay loved little babies and she was aways so cute with them. She was always curious about them and she was especially with Ethan. I wish we had more pictures of her and him but we don't. We will cherish this one with all our hearts. I can picture Lindsay in heaven holding so many babies and being a little Mommy to all of them. I know she is really taking care of our 2 babies who are in heaven with her.

Thanks for sharing an update... friends who followed Lindsay's blog during her illness have e-mailed me since yesterday wondering how things went... amazing that God is still using these "new" friends to lift you in prayer... as are the "old". We love you guys & continue to pray for you as you wait & prepare for the birth of this new little one. Give hugs & kisses to Tanner... Rejoicing with you! Brian, Donna & the little Bits

I LOVE that picture and I will cherish it forever. I am so glad we took it because otherwise we would have no pictures of them together. I know if she was still with us that she would be so cute with him. I am sure she would make a great big sister. And she will be that because this new baby will know all about what an awesome little girl she was and how God used her.
I was praying all day yesterday and was waiting and wondering. :) I love you guys very much and can't wait to meet this new litte one.

Laura & Jon...I'm rejoicing with you that all things went well yesterday! I'm so grateful that you felt the prayers of all those who love and care for you. The thought popped into my head as I read about Lindsay being a little mommy to all the babies in heaven. I wonder if Baby Groen now knows his/her sister, Lindsay. What do you think? I think so!

Know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers!

Much Love,
