Up until now, I've shared several ways that you can be praying for us. Today, I would just ask that you would join us in praising God for His faithfulness.

His faithfulness in guiding our decision about if and when to have another child.

His faithfulness in allowing us to become pregnant.

His faithfulness in meeting us amidst the fear that comes along with being pregnant again after losing a child, and calming it.

His faithfulness in allowing me to have a "textbook" pregnancy, free of any complications, and that even at 36 1/2 weeks pregnant, I still feel really good physically.

His faithfulness in knitting Eliana together as a healthy baby thus far.

His faithfulness in allowing us to experience a deep joy that neither Spencer or I have felt in quite some time as we anticipate her arrival.

The list could go on and on... I am just incredibly grateful.

Stacy, I started reading your blog on Isaac's birthday. My heart is filled with such joy for you as you get ready to meet Eliana. I will continue to pray for you and Spencer as I have since "meeting" you. May God wrap his arms around you especially tightly this week! And I continue to envision Him giving Isaac a big hug as well as he celebrates his baby sister's birth from Heaven.

Oh Stacy you are so amazing in your faith and strength of spirit. Please know that you will all be in my heart and in my prayers. xxx

I sat praying for your family in church yesterday and prayed that of course God give you and Eliana a healthy birth and recovery, but more specifically that Issac's light shine in some way through Eliana's life.

You have some prayer warriors out here sending messages to God! We are with you as the day approaches!

I hope you will visit my blog in the coming days. It's not meant to upset you, but just something "near and dear" to my heart.

Stacy, I haven't commented for a long, long time, but I still think of your family often. I am praying as you count down to Eliana's Birthday. Thank you for continuing to share your story with us. Thank you for letting me peek into the heart of a Christian woman who is much more of a mature Christian than I am. You inspire me.

Many prayers for you, your family, your medical team, your friends... Prayers for everyone you will come into contact with during your hospital stay. I am sure God has this chapter of your lives all mapped out, and it will be a great one, full of his divine wisdom in the outcome.
I pray that God will guide you through this part of your parenting journey.
May God be with you to guide and bless you this week, and all the weeks to come!
