And Still - we will pray, trust, and believe

We met with our DR today, the amino came back showing an extra chromosome 13, Trisomy 13. Aaron and I have not done any reasearch regarding this - so we really cannot answer questions. Purposly, we have stayed away from the internet. We will be meeting with genetic professionals in the future.
From the ultra sound, the DR stated the baby is unlikely to live outside the womb. That is from the DR, but I love the Lord with all my heart and trust that he will bring Aaron and I through this set back.
We simply ask for your continued prayers for our family - Aaron and I ... and Jeremiah "Jeremy" Parker Shelby. Jeremy means Appointed by God

My Favorite Proverb and Psalm ...
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14

"Oh Please don't stay away from the internet." Thats where you'll meet other families who also know this trisomy journey. We have a wonderful message board wheere you can ask any an all quesitons you may have from families who've been here.... http://www.livingwithtrisomy13.org

My hope for you is that you fully inform yourselves on the many aspects of this diagnosis. Then you can make a well informed decision for the care of your child.

There are many families who know your shock, emotions and although your specific situation may be a bit different, we all share the journey of being told our child will not survive...

Please take he time to view the beautiful living children http://www.livingwithtrisomy13.org/trisomy-13.htm and also the Treasured Memory pages.

If I can be of any support please let me know,
