4D Sonogram
How we found out about Mikaela's condition



At 28 weeks Murad and I went to get a "4D Sonogram" done. I remember sitting there nervous, but excited. We went in and they began showing us Mikaela. There was her head, watching her mouth move... scanning down the technician stopped and said, "Did you know her arms are like that?" I immediately looked up and saw her hands were tucked. I replied "No...". She asked me to turn on my side to see if Mikaela would wake up from her nap and move her arms. I remember Murad wiping away my tears saying everything's ok. But she stayed sleeping and I'll never forget that day. Our whole world was turned upside down and that is where it all began. But l
ittle did we know the wonderful world it would lead us to! Here are some of the pictures I thought I'd share with all of you.
