Dear friends and family,
Today Sarah and I found out that we are going to have a baby girl, and couldn’t be more excited!! But with all of this enjoyment, we have found out some unfortunate news about our daughter. During our routine 20-week ultrasound with the doctor, we were told that our baby has an extremely rare developmental disorder where the skull doesn’t form around the brain. Therefore, she will not be able to survive past birth if she for some reason makes it that far. We are going to see a high-risk OB specialist tomorrow to learn a little more about this condition and discuss our current options. It is very hard for us to hear the news, especially after seeing her heartbeat and kicking her legs around like crazy!! We are coming to grips slowly, but surely, with the reality that we are now faced with and ask that everyone keep our family in your thoughts and prayers. It is going to be a rough and bumpy road ahead of us, but whenever the time comes for us to meet our baby girl we’ll be eagerly waiting... We decided along time ago to let go and let God; now more than ever!!
with love, Ben and Sarah
