Charlotte Jean

Peter and i decided on a name tonight for our sweet baby girl...Charlotte Jean. originally we had a completely different name picked out for a little girl, but it just didnt suit this baby. i wanted something that was characteristic of her! charlotte means "little girl or petite and feminine", perfect for our little one. jean is a family name on my mom and both grandmas have jean as a middle name, what an awesome legacy for her to follow! all of those women are strong women of faith and love...again perfect for our little one!

the last two days have been insanely hard for both peter and myself! emotionally we are all over the place and mentally we feel totally discombobulated. i just keep thinking about what we are going to possibly face tomorrow at the doctors visits. if things go as they normally do we will get more bad news and be told to just wait it out. my fear is that there is very little room for more bad. i am scared, more than scared, that this will be the worst and we wont be ready. i am not ready for everything to be finished. therefore, i am begging you to pray right now that tomorrow we will get some good news. i know that God is more than able to heal our Charlotte Jean. i want this more than i have ever wanted anything in my entire life! please pray that she is able to stay in there for several more weeks to come. please pray that the extra fluid in her body disappears. please pray that God would give peter and me the strength to get through tomorrow, it will be a long day (OB appointment at 11; meeting with NICU doc, labor and delivery staff, Dr. Wood, and social worker at 1;  ultrasound at 2:30). we know that God is using all of this for His glory. we know that He is caring for Charlotte Jean in the way that she needs right now! but, please pray that He heal her completely and take away any abnormalities! thanks for praying!

i have been doing alot of searching of God's promises lately and i keep coming back to Hebrews 11, the following few verses always stand out. if you read the entire chapter it highlights of the faith of the old testament believers and what their faith brought about..."HE REWARDS THOSE WHO EARNESTLY SEEK HIM!"

Hebrews 11: 1, 2, and 6:
1. Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2. This is what the ancients were commended for. 6. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

blessings, ALo
