Seeing My Baby's Spine on an Ultrasound Was a Game Changer

Ericka Andersen : Jun 24, 2019

My eyes zeroed in to the skeletal image, each little vertebrae forming a perfect curve of his back. The permanence and reality of my baby couldn't be denied.

The thought of the ultrasound and finding out our baby's gender ignited a spark of joy... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
