have been full of surprises. we found out yesterday that baby canlas is a little boy...weston scott to be exact. we couldn't be happier and the kiddos are already talking about their new baby brother.
we also found out that weston's little heart has some problems. the words "congenital heart defect" have now become part of our vernacular. long story short, his heart hasn't developed properly and one or more surgeries will be required after he's born. there are some other possible complications that we'll find out for sure in a couple of weeks, but as for now we're grateful that those things we do know about are fixable. as we were leaving today, the doctor said that there's no reason not to be 100% hopeful that he'll be fine.
this news has made us reflect on so many things...our gratitude for the health of our kiddos that are here already, the advancement of medicine in the past 40 years, the hope that the gospel brings, and the importance of family.
thanks so much to everyone that's already been so supportive. we love you and will keep you updated.
