I had a bit of nerves going into this ultrasound day, as the last one several weeks ago brought a shock of news that numbed me for the rest of the ultrasound. But by the time I was in the hospital, I had the peace that passes our understanding and experiences wash over me. We were excited to see the little one move and pictures of more of who this one is. It is a hard to describe the feeling when you see your little ones perfectly made feet move around and the silhouette of their unique and precious face come into focus, but it is indeed a holy moment. I felt in awe of God who knits us in our mother’s womb.
There was a surprise though, although definitely not a bad one this time. We would have been happy with either a boy or a girl, and I thought we were having a girl, and Rusty didn’t know. Both of us have learned through the years that our God loves surprises and we are having a boy! We are very excited for him, for us, and for God’s dreams to come to pass in our family.
