Miracles Abound

So we had to share yet another miracle that we have witnessed.  We mentioned in an earlier post that Paige's Aunt Alyssa and Uncle Brian are expecting a baby girl named Evelyn Renee.  What we didn't tell you is that in the same sonogram that confirmed she's a girl the doctor's found a cyst in the baby's brain, a choroid plexus cyst to be exact.  This condition is not uncommon and usually resolves in the 3rd trimester.  However, there are times when it doesn't resolve and it results in a condition called trisomy 18 - a horribly scary scenario.  We prayed and fasted and had wonderful friends join in with prayer and fasting.  And today they went back to the doctor.  They found that the cyst has shrunk down, and only a remnant remains.  They fully expect it to completely disappear and have no affect on the baby.  Isn't God amazing?  He never ceases to amaze us in all He does.  Perhaps the greatest miracle in all of this is that Alyssa and Brian experienced complete peace throughout this whole ordeal, proving yet again that God doesn't only take us out of the circumstance, but He also takes us through it.  Thanks for the prayers, and never underestimate God.
