Not quite sure how to put this all into words...

My sister Megan and her husband found out that they are having a boy! This is exciting, since she thought that was what the baby was since the beginning, but then since the week 12 ultrasound they thought it was a girl for some reason, according to what the nurse said by the pictures. She is about 18 weeks along now.

Please pray for them, if you are reading this.
It looks like something is wrong with his heart. It was all sort of a blur when we talked on the phone on Monday, but it seems that the left atrium is larger and they have to go and see a specialist on Friday. This could mean a number of different things.

I love my sister. She is one of the most amazing people I know, along with her husband. They are truly incredible people and are going to make terrific parents. It's frustrating because while I know that God always has a plan and would never give us more than we can handle, I just don't want them to have to go through this. They have already been through a hard struggle the past couple of years. (Refer here:
Then she had to have surgery and wait an entire year to start TTC again.

I am trying to be optimistic and praying that hopefully this is something minor, or something that can be fixed...praying for healing, and praying for a miracle.

Despite this sad news, I am still in awe of the fact that by late summer/early fall I will officially be the Auntie Anne of two new nieces and two new nephews. How awesome.
God is good.
