Today, we would see our child for the first time. We sat back as the sonographer did her thing. The numbers, lines and black-and-white blurs made no sense to us until, indeed, we saw little baby--- or what looked like a little peanut at the time. "And there's the baby. Congratulations!" I think Julian and I simultaneously let out an awe-struck "wooow." As if the sight of this precious baby wasn't exciting enough, "...and here's the heartbeat. Sounds good." Those sweet little thumps confirmed that the image onscreen was more than just a blob of cells. That was our baby, at a mere 7.5 weeks and just about the size of a raspberry, so full of life. As that tiny heart beat, two first-time parents' hearts filled with joy. We are so incredibly excited to see you, Baby.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
