Baby Sullivan...

Baby Sullivan - 19 weeks

Sara had her 19 week ultrasound this past week. The OB said that the baby looks very healthy and is growing on schedule. So far, the chemo has had no apparent affect on the baby (or the momma).

We had been contemplating on waiting until birth to find out the sex of the baby. I was convinced that we were having a boy, but then lots of people told Sara that they thought she was going to have a girl. We decided to find out this past week and are going to have a BABY GIRL!

It's a good thing that we found out. Now, we (I) have 4 months to mentally prepare that we're having a daughter. We're excited to know and now have to think of some girl names (we had the boy name picked out months ago).

Please pray that the baby would continue to be strong and unaffected through the remaining treatments and that Sara does not go into premature labor (possible risk with chemo).

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him. --Psalms 103:13

We were a little surprised with our baby girl, too, but we wouldn't have it any other way. What a huge blessing! Sara, I can't believe you're already 19 weeks along!

Congratulations on your baby girl...you will find (as my husband did!) that with daughters, it won't be long until you have all the boys you want...and then some! If your daughter gives you as much joy as Tamara & Lauren have given us, you will indeed be blessed! Still praying :)

Brad and Sara,
I am so glad that things are going well for you in San Antonio. Both of you are two of the most inspiring and optimistic people I have ever met. It was an honor to be able to help such a deserving family. I also wanted to throw a name out there...it is Jennessa, and means a gracious gift from God. It is my little sister's name that my parents chose after trying for many years to conceive. They finally laid everything in God's hands and were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. I will continue to follow your progress and wish you both the best of luck with the rest of the pregnancy and chemo.
