20 weeks! …1/2 way there!

I consider it a pure joy to have been chosen to carry such a special baby.

Dear Jaxton,

You made it 20 weeks!!! Great Job Baby! You only have 20 more to go. Hang in there buddy. We are so excited to meet you. Jake has been kissing you through my belly and saying Hi Brother!  These past few weeks have definitely been a roller coaster to say the least. We have had so many friends and strangers praying for you. You are so loved already. The impact you have had on my life and others in just 20 weeks is unbelievably amazing. You are truly being used by the Lord already. Every time you kick I have to announce it because i’m so thrilled that you are still alive and holding on to life when the odds are so against you. Your either really stubborn or have a lot of perseverance. Either way I’m ecstatic that your here! I think about you all the time and research all the things we know about you and I’m not only asking for one miracle but 3.

1) for the Trisomy 13

2) for the holoprosencephaly

3) All the umbilical problems

Jaxton, You are in the hands of a BIG God. There is NOTHING he can’t do. Your life is in the same hands who command the oceans where to stop, tell the mountains how high to reach, Shut the mouths of the lions to protect Daniel, Kept Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego safe from the flames, talked through a burning bush, fed the 5,000 on fish and bread, Brought Jairus daughter back from the dead, parted the seas for the Israelites to get across. Your creator Loves you and made you perfect in his sight. We believe that God can and does do miracles and that is specifically what we are praying for. We have the same faith of the woman who touched Jesus cloak to be healed of her hemorrhages. (Matthew 9:20-22, Mark 5:25-34, Luke 8:43-48)

I once heard a quote that said “Tell me how big your problems are and I’ll tell you how big my God is.”

But my dear son, Even if he doesn’t answer these miracles we have prayed for we will still love the LORD and trust his will for our life and yours.

My marriage mentor was talking to me last night and mentioned she would be praying for a MOMENT OF BRILLIANCE. I hope that this Doctor and his nursing staff are non-believers so that we can show them the faith we have through this. I want God to perform such a huge unexplainable miracle that the MOMENT OF BRILLIANCE hits them square in the face like a ton of bricks.  🙂

    I am a member of Wesley United Methodist Church in Union City. I became aware of your difficult pregnancy sunday when Joyce asked for prayers. I have been reading your blogs and can’t stop reading or thinking about your family. I lift you in prayer daily. I can’t imagine how you handle such news. I truly believe that God doesn’t make mistakes and that if this is to happen as the doctors fear, there is a reason God has done so! I believe through your sharing of your story and your faith, you…Jaxton….are touching so many. I feel that I will be checking on here frequently and even though it breaks my heart, your faith is uplifting and reminds me to live each day as if it were my last! God is a loving God, trust in him.


  2. Lisa, this is such a beautiful post. Jaxton way to go buddy! We are so excited that you have made it to the halfway mark. We are constantly praying to our BIG and Gracious and Holy God….because we know He is good. We know He is compassionate. And we trust in His ways! Here in Southern California we love you!

    Beautiful. I pray one day Jaxton reads this with his own eyes. Impossible… But maybe not!

    I don’t know you, saw this link left by someone on FB, so I decided to check it out. I was very moved by your story. Sometimes I think we tend to take our healthy children for granted. Wanted to know I will pray for you, Jaxton, and your family. May God bless you all.

  5. I am a pediatric nurse and found your post looking for information to help a patient’s parents in dealing with their sons diagnosis of semi lobar holoprosencephaly. Thank you for loving your sweet baby boy before you even met him. And I am amazed and lifted by your faith in God to perform a miracle – and he did in showing others your faith and having your son instill faith in others. Your words are beautiful and I hope you continue to share his story.
