"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." - Psalm 139:13-16

The First

So on December 21, 2007 my beautiful wife and I walk into Denver Health to get our first Ultra-sound. We had high hopes to go through without any problems, and since we have been living right and doing everything we were supposed to, we didn't have anything to worry about. The first part of our ultra-sound was great. We did not want to find out the sex, and since that was one of the first questions from our sonogrammer, she didn't even look in the general area. We saw the feet, the arms, and heard the heart beat again; it was awesome. The second part of our ultra-sound did not come to be all that fun. The wonderful lady doing our ultra-sound told us that she was trying to look at something towards the nose and mouth. In both me and Heather's mind, we already knew what she was trying to look at. She said she was not sure if she was seeing anything so she was going to go and get the attending doctor. By the end of it they had three different opions about our baby having Cleft Lip. They took a look at the palate and did not see anything of concern at this point. The doctor automatically refered us to Children's Hospital of Denver. I am very thankful that we live in this region because of Children's Hospital. This blog will be about our journey as we go through the ups and the downs of our beautiful little baby having cleft lip.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart. Lean not unto thine own understanding but in all thy ways acknowledge Him and he will direct your path." (Proverbs 3:5-6)

We have no idea why this is happening with us, but at least we can have confidence that our God is in control of everything. And since any reason He might be able to give us would probably not be good enough, all we can do is Trust in Him.
