Pray for our Rainbow Baby

This is not really how I wanted to make this announcement, but here goes.

About three weeks ago, we found out we were pregnant again!  We are so excited to be welcoming another baby into our family.  Our rainbow baby.

Today was our first prenatal appointment and the we did not see what we need to be seeing at this point.  We couldn't find a heartbeat and everything is smaller than what it should be.  They drew blood today to check my levels and they will check them again Thursday.  We need these numbers to go up!!!  If Thursdays numbers are good, we will have another ultrasound on Tuesday to see how baby is growing.  PLEASE be praying!  We need your prayers and a miracle.  Nothing is impossible with God!  We have been trying to think of something to call this baby besides "baby" and we have kind of settled on Jakin.  Jakin means "He establishes".  We need God to establish this pregnancy beyond a shadow of a doubt and make it thrive!!!

One year ago today we found out that Shyla's heart had stopped beating and this news today was definately not what we wanted to hear, but again, I can't say it enough, nothing is impossible with God!!!  Please join us in praying for our baby, Jakin, to be established!!!

We love you all.  Thank you for your prayers and for beliving in this life inside of me!

Dear Heavenly Father, Lord, I come to You right now praying for a touch of Your almighty hand upon this precious life that is inside of Mattie's womb. You knew this child even before Jakin (Jerico :) ) was conceived and You ordained this life for Your glory. Lord, please allow Mattie's numbers to go up and her pregnancy to progress. Please, Lord, give Mattie, Ben & Ethan Your peace that passes all understanding. Lord, we give you the honor and glory for all things! Lord, we don't always understand but we know that You are in control of all things. We put our faith and trust in You! For it is in Your precious Son's name, the Creator of all things, the Giver of life, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen (So be it)

I don't know you, but I am praying for your Rainbow Baby Jakin. When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I was in the e.r. thinking something terrible was wrong. They did the ultrasound and all they saw was the gestational sack, no heartbeat. From that moment on, I started to declare Psalms 118:17 "Life and not death will be my part, and I will give out the story of the works of the Lord." My faith got stronger than I could ever imagine and now my son is a LIVING testimony for God! Praise God for every single milestone and declare the things to come:)
