We had our first ultrasound today and IT'S A GIRL!!! This is Israel (you can just call her "Rae" or "Rael" for short). She is healthy and beautiful. I can't tell you just how thrilled we are - I am crying as I type this. Never in my life could I describe the amazement of watching your unborn child on a TV screen, moving around, sucking her thumb, looking healthy and strong. It was absolutely breathtaking. I can't even begin to imagine the wonder of finally holding her in my arms. Thank you, Jesus, for our beautiful daughter and for keeping her healthy and protected. We are amazed and so thankful.
