What was the prayer? We have been praying that God would make this decision unmistakably clear to us both as to what we are to do. He has answered us without question. Although we thought we had a decision to make and have been deliberating and stressing over this whole process in the end, there was no decision to be made. We came to a conclusion over the weekend to enter the study after many conversations, tears, and prayer. God brought us through this decision-making process bringing us closer to Him and to each other and we praise Him for that. Looking back on the day we have mixed emotions.
We are thankful that God took us on this journey to meet with these wonderful doctors and that they discovered this bleed through the use of the MRI, which we would not have had otherwise. We are also thankful that he has used this process to deepen our faith and has given us many opportunities to share with others. We are disappointed in the result because we have poured so much time and effort into the details of this trip. We have also put so much of our energy into this decision and then to have it disappear is actually hard to put into words... but how can we argue when God has answered our prayer so clearly?
I know that God is the healer not the Doctors here. When Whitney goes beyond what they have predicted her to do, there is only one explaination--God's healing hand not the in utero proceedure. Thank you for praying us through this difficult week. We continue to eargerly anticipate what God has in store for our dear daughter.
