Sneak peak of Amalya

posted in: Amalya, Family | 3

On Saturday, we had the great priviledge of seeing a sneak peak of our grandson. DD#2 and her hubby were gifted with a 3D/4D ultrasound, donated by Sustaining Grace. Their mission is to “To help provide non-medical 3D and 4D ultrasounds for the parents of babies that have received a fatal diagnosis. If these parents are going to give their child every chance at life, we would like to provide them with the opportunity to watch them grow in the womb.”

Our thanks go out to Sustaining Grace. It is such a wonderful gift! For many parents, this is the only time they may see their baby alive. We were so thankful that family members on both sides were able to attend, too. The image of Amalya was projected onto the big screen. For nearly 30 minutes, we watched him kicking and moving all over. It was such a joy to see him alive and active. He definitely was showing off for us! At times he would turn his head straight at us, as if looking. We think he may have been blinking. Once he even stuck out his tongue!

Everyone was very encouraged, and we made some very happy memories.

If you’re new to reading my blog, this sweet baby has a neural tube defect, and it is not possible for him to survive outside the womb. It has been a difficult road, but we have all felt God’s “peace that passes all understanding” throughout this process. You can read more about Amalya here.
