The BIG reveal is yet to come…

We had another ultrasound and doctor appointment today. It showed that Israel is still developing the same as he has been thus far. He is growing very well and is now about 4 pounds! And he is still breech with his head tucked nicely against and sometimes under my ribs! This was the first ultrasound that showed he has some hair and that was fun to see! He has little peach fuzz all over his head. The tech was able to get some great pictures of his face straight on and his adorable cheeks and button nose…he is SO cute!

I always seem to have mixed feelings on these days. Part of me is super excited and hopeful…the other part of me gets a bit nervous and anxious. Which is why it is wonderful that God gave me Jon. He is my strength when mine gets low. He is my encourager and reminder of the promises that God has given us. He always has something very insightful that I need to hear. This is what is was today.
“I think that the reason we aren’t seeing any changes when go into these appointments is because then it will be just that much more evident that God was the one who healed him and that there was no way it could just have been something that was “overlooked” or “missed”. This way we will have months of proof that Israel did have absent hands and feet. It will be said on every medical report and every ultrasound (Which have been done by a different tech every time!) until the day he is born. And they are sure going to be in for a shock when he is born and he is completely healed!”

I thank God all the time for giving me such a wise and Godly husband. He is my everything and I am so thankful for him. God knew exactly what he was doing when he put us together.

What Jon said is truly our belief. We believe with our whole hearts that God will complete the work he has started in Israel and that when he is born HE WILL BE HEALED! This is our belief and it is what we cling to when we have moments of doubt. We continue to read the scriptures and remember the promises of God.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and encouragement. We go back in two weeks just for an appointment, and two weeks after that for another ultrasound & appointment. We will keep the updates coming as there is any new information.
