Our newest little addition

Well, there is so much that has happened and so much to say since we last posted about our daughter. We've decided to name her Zoe. This name was a gift from God as Mark and I rarely agree on names. We decided to claim the meaning for her life. Her name means life, God given life, high quality of life and eternal life. We felt this was the perfect name for our baby girl who before she's even had a breath of air has had odds playing against her. A few months ago she was diagnosed with OI (see older blog for more details and link). This has been a roller coaster of a time for us. We have been greatly encouraged and strengthened by so many many peoples prayers. God has really been faithful to us. The day we got the diagnosis the doctor said there was a one percent chance of her not having OI. We've had a few more ultrasounds to watch her growth and bones and such and each time gets better. She is just perfect. This doesn't rule out OI but it has certainly given us and maybe even the doctor a reason to believe that she may indeed be a healthy little girl. Her odds keep getting better so to speak. We will not know until a few months after she is born whether she has OI or not but we are so thankful for all those that are praying for her! I can see before my eyes your prayers being answered. Please everyone keep praying for Zoe. We are hoping for a miracle thanks to many of you who have encouraged us! Jess
