Glimpses of His Faithfulness

On Wednesday December 24th (Yes, on Christmas Eve) We went in for a fun ultrasound. We got to have a 3D/4D one and they are SO COOL! When we scheduled our original 20 week ultrasound (Before we knew anything) the place we had it done at has a special they offer their clients. If you have your 20 week ultrasound done with them you get to come back at 27/28 weeks for a free 3D/4D ultrasound! We were very excited about this. (If you have never seen one, they are amazing!!!) Anyway, so this appointment was not for any medical purpose and we didn't meet with our doctor, we simply had this done for fun, because we could. When we got there I informed the tech of Israel's current known condition as I didn't want her to be surprised. She was an awesome tech and was so much fun to work with. We had a 30 minute session, and in that 30 minutes GOD truly reviled himself! She started with pictures of his adorable face! And let me tell you... HE IS SO CUTE!!! He has a little button nose and chubby cheeks (Which follows suit for our children when they are babies). He likes his arms tucked close to his face and enjoys being all squished on one side of my womb...even though he could spread out more...he doesn't. He is still breech...head straight up and bottom straight down. We looked at his cute little arms...and we saw something new...little "buds" at the end of his fully developed right arm! Yes...his right arm appeared to be complete (Meaning both upper and lower arm were all there) and there looked to be the beginnings of 3 little buds at the end of his arm! This was very encouraging and exciting for us as this was brand new news!!! His left arm appears to still be the same. She then took a look at his cute little legs. His left leg seems to be the same as before...but as she was looking at his right leg she said this "Did you say he doesn't have ANY feet?" I replied with...well that was the last we were told, but we believe that God can do anything and we are believing Him for Israel's healing. She continued on to show us and tell us about the partial RIGHT FOOT that we could see!!! IT WAS AMAZING! He has a complete right leg and a heal and partial foot! PRAISE GOD is pretty much all we could think!!! It was amazing and we were so thankful for this opportunity to "see" our little baby and get a preview of how stinking cute he is going to be once he is born.

Our next appointment for a "medical" ultrasound and our apt. with the doctor will be on January 6th. We are really looking forward to seeing what that ultrasound shows us and discussing Israel's new developments with the doctor.

Again...THANK YOU all so much for your continued prayers and support. God is so good...and he is so faithful...all the time!

Here are a few pictures of our sweetie.
