Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Family Photos

Andrea Reed with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep came to our home a few weeks ago when I was 33 weeks pregnant to give us family photos.  NILMDTS is an amazing foundation...there is a link to the website on the right side of my blog.  The photographers donate their gifts to families like ours.  Consider donating to support their mission.  We will be donating in honor of Grace, as well as Andrea our photographer.

Here are a few of my favorite photos...

I love this quotation from the NILMDTS website: "Dearest Baby, may you know, our greatest blessing was having you."  Grace, you are our greatest blessing.


  1. I'm a new follower of your blog. I did an internship in the family support area of a NICU and I know we had contact info for NILMDTS. Such a wonderful organization. Ever since I first came across your blog, I have been thinking of you and your family. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. Those are beautiful photos! I am still praying hard for my little name twin :)

  3. I love the pictures! They are beautiful!!

  4. Beautiful! We are a big fan of NILMDTS!!

  5. My eyes welled up. May God bless you & yours during this time.

    A wonderful ministry.

  6. Gorgeous pictures. NILMDTS is a wonderful organization. They are such a blessing to many families.

  7. My name is Renay Martin and I honestly don't remember how I came across your blog but want you to know I just experienced this same journey last year with my daughter Jillian. She was diagnosed with trisomy 13 at 20 weeks. She lived briefly after birth. Her birthday is actually march 5 so right around the time your Grace will be born. I would love to chat with you more if you desire. I have such a special place in my heart for mothers who endure situations like these. You cannot describe to someone unless they have avtually walked in your shoes. My email is if you would like to communicate in any way. Prayers to you and your family.
