The Day Before...

Less than 24 hours until we meet with the specialist, have more tests done on the baby's heart and get more information than we'll know what to do with.  Anyone who knows me well would tell you that I am extremely impatient.  Reading Ephesians is always a struggle when I come to, "love is patient".  By only the power of God I have not felt impatient waiting for this appointment at all.  By the power of prayer I actually feel a lot of peace as we prepare for tomorrow morning.  I can't help but laugh when I think of how many times I've prayed for patience, I believe God is going to give me some finally!

A second mom in Calgary came over this morning to keep me busy, play with Sadie and make me dinner!  I sit here writing while Sadie naps, my apple pie for dessert bakes and my belly is full from a wonderful lunch that she also provided.  Wow, how can God bless you with more than one fantastic mom?  We truly are blessed by the people around us.

Last night we officially named our baby and after a gender confirmation tomorrow, will allow you to pray for her (or him) by name.  We wanted Sadie's name to be a surprise but there are more miracles to announce with this second baby and her name doesn't seem like big news.

Thank you for continuing to pray for us, we'll be sure to update you at some point tomorrow after our appointment as well.  We are surviving, God is a wonderful comfort to our family and has raised up some incredible people to spoil us and make us constantly wonder, "are we that nice?"


  1. Amy - I read your story today and my heartfelt prayers go out to you and your family. I was listening to Shine FM today in Calgary and heard a song that I think you would like. It's called "What it is to be loved" by Mark Schultz. I have attached a link to the lyrics for you. I hope you can download it and listen to it.


    My daughter was 10 years old when we discovered she had a hole in her heart. She underwent Open Heart Surgery at Edmonton's Stollery Hospital. Dr. Quinonez performed the surgery. The entire staff there are so wonderful and I hope you will get referred there when your daughter is born.

    Your daughter is already surrounded by some much love from God and your family. I will keep you all in my prayers.
