Mom to Evie Caris
11/8/2012 – 11/9/2012
In July of 2012 I had my 20 week ultrasound to find out the gender #2 (baby #1 is a boy, Micah, born in December 2010). We found out that I was carrying a baby girl but there were some concerns about low levels of amniotic fluid. After an extensive ultrasound by a specialist in maternal/fetal medicine, we were informed that our baby girl had some major birth defects that would not allow her to live outside of the womb. She had no bladder and nonfunctioning kidneys which would prevent her from making amniotic fluid and her growing environment would not be able to grow big enough so that her lungs could develop properly. The news was just heart-wrenching but we were trusting the Lord for His best.
Evie was born on 11/8/2012 and went home to be with Jesus four hours after she was born. It was such a blessing to be with her for that time. I certainly miss her desperately with every part of me, but am so thankful to the Lord for the promise of Heaven.
