Audrey and I are asking for your specific prayers today as we have the most crucial appointment of the pregnancy to date at Texas Children’s Hospital Maternal Fetal Medicine. The triplets (all boys, two identical!) will have a multi-hour scan of their anatomy as important measurements are mapped. Thank you for remembering Audrey and the boys in prayer.
