Hi there. My name is Aubrey and I wish I didn’t have a blog. Really. This is an outlet for my heart as I travel on this path towards meeting my little girl, Leilah Jubilee. On September 24th, my 20th week of pregnancy, she was diagnosed with Anencephaly, a fatal neural tube defect affecting the formation of the skull and brain. If she survives until birth she may be stillborn or pass within minutes/hours of birth.
My husband and I are not crushed or despaired, our hearts hurt but we KNOW that we are in the hands of a Father who is Love. Whether we see with our physical eyes a miracle or get to put her gently in His arms for eternity we know where we stand, we know He is good.
She is due on Valentine’s Day.
So you are welcome to join me on this path. Life is about community, sharing in one another’s joys and sorrows, triumphs and failures. We can’t walk this alone.
My disclaimer: I rate my blog a pg-13, I do occasionally have my sailor mouth moments and I will not sugar coat my feelings or over-spiritualize things. Yes we are in ministry but I am a human, a hurting mother and Papa God loves me in spite of it 🙂
