Our four year old started asking for a baby sister, every night she would ask God to send her a baby sister during our family prayers. My husband and I began trying, we were ready to add a little one to complete our family. It wasn't as easy as our first pregnancy, we tried for months, the stress overwhelmed me. I was thinking maybe our family would not be able to grow.
That sweet day came, and we were finally expecting. We were thrilled and sharing our news with everyone! We didn't wait the 12 weeks to share our great gift on the way with all our friends and family.
Our Ana Maria would kiss my growing belly and share with us how much she already loved the baby. We would wait to find out if she was going to have a brother or a sister. She was a surprise herself.
At 20 weeks, we drove to the lab to see our precious little miracle on the way. The car ride was filled with laughter and song.
While laying patiently to get all the official pictures, I kept chatting away with the technician who seemed quiet and focused. When she was finished she said she would be back in a little while with the doctor.
Greg and Ana Maria came in and we waited patiently to see the baby again, the fun way this time. We had no idea our world was about to change; in that instant there would be a before and after in our lives.
The doctor came in and told us the baby had a heart defect. Tears immediately burned down my cheeks and continued to flow down my shirt. Then I felt the room spinning, too much information I couldn't retain, I stopped listening and began to worry. Would I lose the baby? Could I walk carefully enough to not fall and hurt the baby even more?
I couldn't breathe or speak. I'm sure I sobbed loud enough to scare my precious daughter, the big sister to be, who was so looking forward to having a baby to play with. My first words were "is it a boy or a girl?" We were having a baby girl, God had answered my little one's prayers, but with conditions. Devastation filled my soul.
