So, Brian and I are deciding if we wanted to find out if this little gummi bear is a boy or girl.
Brian was set on finding out.
Me? I wanted to wait.
In my online Mommy Group someone was shown a site and they decided to share it with us.
(if you're gonna watch this, be prepared to cry like a newborn)

Its a blog about the journey of 2 newlywed parents and their first born. Josh and Cali Hinkley were excited to welcome their baby boy into the world. Since Josh played baseball for Utah Valley University they knew little baby McKallister (Mac for short) was gonna be a homerun. They were so excited to meet their little guy. On June 26th 2008, just 2 days shy of Cali's due date they went in for a routine stress test. Baby Mac's heartbeat could not be found. She was brought to the hospital where after 14 hours of labor- she met her little guy, but not the way she wanted. They were able to spend 12 hours with their lifeless little baby before the nurse stood in front of them and wrapped him completely in a blanket to be taken for the autopsy. They later dressed their son in burial clothes and buried him in a miniature casket.
I admire their strength. They know that they will once again meet their son and have the chance to raise him. I am so thankful for this gospel and knowing that families are indeed forever.
