We had our first ultrasound on Thursday and what a blessing it was to see our little one on the screen. He/She looked like a little peanut. We were able to see and hear the heartbeat...is there anything more incredible than that sight or sound?? As soon as I saw the heartbeat, I have my first hunch at the sex of the baby...but not because of the old wives tale about the rate. The last time I had an ultrasound the doctors were checking for any abnormalities because of my "issues", and though it was good to see "nothing" at the time, how much richer it was this time to see life growing inside me!
In light of this experience, especially for us first-timers, I feel I must share these videos. I have such a love for babies and children and those lives that begin at conception! Listen to Gianna Jessen as she shares her story and so wonderfully and accurately words our need to glorify our Lord and rise up as the men and women He has called us to be for His glory and for the raising of our little ones. I don't begin to do this justice, so please just watch. I hope this moves you as much as it does me.
