The Journey Continues

On the Doctor's recommendation, Jason and Amanda went to speak with a Genetic Counsellor about their situation. All of the markers showing on the ultrasounds indicated the possibility of either Downs Syndrome or Edwards Syndrome. Terminating the pregnancy was an option they refused to consider and they were encouraged to go for an amniocentesis to determine exactly what they were dealing with...

Just another update.  The amniocentesis is happening late this morning followed by a fetal MRI later on.  There is some risk of prematurely inducing labour with the amniocentesis (0.4%) so please be praying and believing with us that the procedure will go smoothly and will have no adverse effects on the pregnancy. 

Please understand that even if the amnio comes back with negative results, we are believing that it is God's heart for our son to be healthy and whole at the end of all of this regardless of what the situation or data tells us. 

God is the giver of good gifts, not bad ones.  He has a heart for full and abundant life in every one of His creations and He fearfully and wonderfully crafts each one accordingly.  This means that the current situation and any negative data that we may receive during this process is contrary to His designs for our son and it is His will to change this situation to align it with His truth.    Thank you for standing with us in this.
