As most of you know, we are trying to conceive baby #5 (and hopefully earth-baby #3.)
I would love it if you all prayed for the next baby to be kell-negative.
I keep thinking that I will start sending out prayer requests for the baby after we get pregnant, but the baby’s blood type is decided at conception. It makes sense to pray now instead of after the baby is conceived. I’m not sure why this just dawned on me.
Anyway, if the baby inherits my blood type (kell-negative) I will have a normal pregnancy. If the baby gets Josh’s blood type (kell-positive) the baby will have a very low chance of surviving the pregnancy. For more info you can look at “Anti-kell Antibodies.” All of our babies have a 50/50 chance of having either of these blood types, but we know that God is the one who chooses our next baby’s blood type.
We would be so devastated to lose another precious child. Please come together with us and pray for a kell-negative baby. God tells us that He loves giving His children good things that they ask for. He wants us to ask. We believe in the power of prayer and we want all of you to come on this journey with us and see what amazing things God does. We are so thankful for you all!
Matthew 7:7-11 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
