While I know some people question our decision, it was not a difficult decision to choose to carry our baby to term. I could no sooner end this pregnancy than I could take the life of Julie or Natalie. In fact I'm hoping to have a long pregnancy filled with kicks and hiccups and elbows to the ribs. This baby is a blessing in our lives, and hopefully in the lives of all of you who will get to know her through my words and pictures. We are praying he is born alive, and will feel doubly blessed if she lives for hours or even days. Your prayers during this time of joy and grief are very appreciated.
