When the Bottom Drops Out

This is our youngest, Justin. He and Charli have been expecting a baby, until last week. She has been spotting almost from the beginning of the pregnancy. Friday she went to a fetal specialist in Dallas. The baby has a deformed spine and organs outside the body. She is not expected to carry it full term, but if she should, it will not live long outside of the womb.
Another blow to our family. This is a very difficult time. This couple is so young to be having to handle this kind of situation. I pray that they will be strong in their faith and be drawn closer to our Lord, who is the only One who can provide what is necessary to handle this situation.
We are blessed and grateful for all the prayers of those we know and many around the country whom we don't know. We continue to pray for guidance for Justin and Charli, for Al's health, and for our financial situation. Everything about our lives is in limbo.
We give thanks to the One who created us and this baby. We know that the Lord loves us all and this baby. His will is what we seek. He knew us in our mother's womb and He knows this baby.
Praise be to the God of the Universe for His grace and mercy.
