I lay there, eyes smarting as I watched the screen in the darkened room. The woman spoke again.
"There's one kidney..there's the other one..Now I'll measure the head..awe, there's a little foot..see that? There's the four valves of the heart opening and closing..there's the brain...the bladder..."
And my soul whisper's to my Father, "I will praise Thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." [Ps. 139:14]
My mother heart stirs and I can't wait to get this newest little one into my arms. I'm so in love already!
A soft giggle comes from the ultrasound technician, "He or she is a strong one !..is pushing hard against the doppler."
I speak for the baby, "Back off ! This is my territory!"
" How ?" I wonder, "Can people ever claim there is no God? How can people ever try to justify murdering such a precious little soul, claiming it's really not a person?" It's a horrid thought and I turn my attention back to the screen. I'm so grateful for the woman's explanations on what the black and white shapes are. And I think..she's having just as much fun as I am, checking this little one out.
And I Can't stop SMILING :)
