This is the story of our precious baby boy, who was diagnosed prenatally at
17 weeks with a fatal chromosome disorder called Trisomy 13. Although
Jonathan's condition is considered "not compatible with life", we desired to give
him every chance at life. Our prayer is that those who are touched by our story
are drawn to God, who is Life Himself. John 14:6

celebrating 20 weeks (last monday) with jonathan! he's been extremely active in the evenings, keeping me up pretty late. he seems more active than kate was. i'm enjoying every minute of it! i also seemed to have suddenly grown quite a lot bigger in the last 2 weeks. as of yesterday (20.5 weeks along), i have gained another pound! i am hopeful that this means jonathan is growing as well! we'll see on wednesday at our specialist's appointment.


  1. So glad that you are enjoying every minute of it Lauren! You are a beautiful, amazing woman of God!

  2. This is funny b/c yesterday at Church was the first time I looked at you and could really tell you are pregnant - now I know why! It's amazing what a pound will do! You look great as always - a glowing mom-to-be of a wonderful God-given little boy!
