March 1, 2011: Yup.

Heaveno!



























Due Date:  August 26, 2011.  

Amnio to find out if EB or not EB:  March 15, 2011

Results of amnio:  April 2011

EPT result:  December 21, 2010.

That means it will be over 3 months for us without knowing EB or no EB.

1 in 4 chance the baby will have EB.

Now you see why we are so passionate about funding this cure?

God night.

  1. Congratulations. Praying really hard that this precious baby is one of the 3/4. Either way, this baby is sooooo lucky to have you and Angelique as parents, plus some amazing older sisters.
    You are doing an awesome job with your fundraising.
    Your amazing spirit has been keeping me going as I struggle in Christchurch, New Zealand with our devastating earthquake. I read your blog daily and it reminds me to be strong, because you and family are so strong.
    Wow!
    Thanks, this news made my day,

  6. What an amazing surprise!!! Congratulations to the Ringgold's family. Bella is smiling in Heaven. And you can see how proud Ali is!

    In my heart I know everything will be just fine! You and Ang are amazing parents. This Baby (Eb or no EB) will be so loved and cared.

    And Tim, this time the odds are on your side! You have 75% chances of having an EB free baby! Concentrate your energy on this 75% instead of the 25%.

    Lots of love,

Anyway all that aside I will be putting my extra special prayer hat on and will be praying with everything I got that baby is EB free, I know either way you got this covered but......it doesn't hurt to send some extra special loveing prayers your way for your little one on the way.

  16. Praying for EB free for you. Whatever happens, you are the parents who I know will handle it with grace and respect for the will of God. What a blessing for you all! Just the faith you have shown in not being scared to have another child after what you have been through is amazing. I am sure Ali is over the moon, as you all are. Please keep your faith, and know that the plans for THIS Ringgold have been in the Lord's heart since the beginning of time.

  60. Congrats!!! This is SO strange! I asked my Facebook friends to donate by texting BELLA last night right as I went to bed. I was laying in bed, thinking of Bella and all of these sweet babies I read about. EB was on my mind, as it always has been this past year+. I was thinking about how strong and passionate you guys are about helping to get a cure. The thought came into my head wondering if you would be having another baby! I don't know why it popped into my head, as it never has before. You were probably writing this around the same time I was thinking it. I am so happy for you all. I will be praying this baby is EB free and praying that your nerves will be calm the next few months. What a blessing and a lucky little baby. =) God is good!

    With love,

  69. will pray for a healthy baby just like I prayed for healing for Bella. I am just wondering why you would take a 25% chance to bring a child into the world to possibly suffer? What steps will you take to protect precious Allie from the potential loss of another sibling?

  73. Yeah! I am so happy for your family. I kinda thought you were going to tell us you were having a baby when you were posting about "exciting news to share" but that turned out to be your trip which you did not take. And the reason I thought this was there was a sweet photo of Ang posted prior to this and her tummy looked a little larger. I am soo happy for you.

    ReplyDelete
  74. YAY!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously...chills & happy tears have taken over me! You haven't left my prayers...so I'll add on to them :) Praying that God's will be done and I have faith that all will be fine. Nevertheless, I will always be here for my FAB & FAV PARTY OF 5!!!! You know what's cool?...is that Bella's already met this little soul that we'll be meeting in August! Miss her more than ever and think about her daily. How's Ali? Over the moon, I'm sure!!!

    yay yay!

    xo always,

  77. I missed the news but was SO excited to read it just now! As someone who has tried to have another child without success, I realize how perfectly planned by God, and how precious each life is! This is no accident. God has a purpose and a plan and I am so so thankful for this blessing He has given! I will join in to pray and anxiously await this child. EB or not, this child will be loved, blessed, and is a miracle just to be here. Ali will do just fine... you are amazing parents! Thanks for sharing your news and your journey! Much love from Texas! ~Michelle
