This is week two of the Walking with You series is about the waiting period... after we found out about Kael the not knowing was the hardest part!! We had multiple follow up appointments, stress tests, ultrasounds, an amniocenteses, lots of waiting, praying and trying to be patient... I learned alot about patience during this time. I prayed harder than I ever had, pleaded with god. I promised him that I would do whatever it took for this little boy. I prayed that his life would be a good one and that he wouldn't have to deal with much pain. I googled so many things! Every time they mentioned something it might be I would look it up and try to understand what we were up against and how I could best prepare for my new little boy coming soon. I read for hours, looking for people with similar stories, trying to find out what we could do to make his life the best it could be. Hours of worries, fears, what ifs planning out our new lives. We talked for hours on what we would do Layne and I grew more than I ever thought possible in the following 14 weeks. We prayed, begged pleaded with the lord to help us make the right decisions to let us know what we needed to do for the little life growing inside of me. We wanted to make all the best decisions possible and bring this little life into the world knowing we would do our best and fight for his little life. Those were some of the longest nights, longest weeks ever. With lots of praying though I felt comfort in knowing we were doing all that we could and that the lord would help us to make the decisions we would need to make.
*Prayer asks for this week... please pray for little Tripps family who are making the hardest decisions of their lives right now. Little Tripp returned to heaven and is out of his pain now.
