On August 4, 2010 our hearts broke as we heard the Dr. say "she has anencephaly...these babies don't live" at our 19 wk ultrasound. The Dr. is wrong. Our precious daughter's time on earth may be short, but she will live for eternity with our Lord in heaven. During the few months we have her here with us, we intend to make the most of every second of it. Our hope is that she will leave behind more than a few short memories, but that she will leave a legacy of what it means to hope in Jesus.
We had another session of pregnancy photos done back at the beginning of November. Our friend Luke Smith, of Living Proof Studios in Dover, NH did them. (He did our wedding photos too!) I put another slideshow with these pictures on the right side of the blog with some of my favorites. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a picture feind... and we are SO grateful to have so many beautiful photos to remember this time. I'm going to put contact info for both Luke and Kelly (did our last photos) - that way if you're ever in need of beautiful photos, you'll know who to call! Both of them have also graciously offered to come to the hospital and take photos of our time with Rachel as well. 36 hours from now we'll be meeting our girl! Can't wait!
