Happy Birth Day!!!

“Thanks be to God for His inexpressable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15
We are beyond excited to welcome these 4 sweet miracles into this world! They truly are an inexpressable gift from God!! After 9 1/2 amazing weeks in the hospital these babies were ready to make an appearance, and on no other day than November 17th which is World Prematurity Day!
We woke up Thursday morning thanking God for 30 weeks and thinking it would be another typical day at the hospital. I was feeling well and the babies were looking great. During our daily visit from the doctor, however, she noticed that my face and neck were looking a little bit more puffy than usual. Josh and I hadn’t thought anything of it considering I had been on bed rest and was spending most of my time tilted back on my head. She proceeded to have labs drawn though to make sure all of my levels were looking alright. It was soon discovered that I had developed preeclampsia(which if left untreated is very unsafe for mother and babies) and the only treatment is delivery. We cannot tell you what a true blessing it was that not only she noticed that at the perfect time, but that our C-section was quickly scheduled for the next day, Friday afternoon, with enough time for the doctors, nurses, and our delivery team to prepare. We had an amazing delivery team of about 35 people there to take care of us in the operating room and the surgery could not have gone better! Seeing these 4 beautiful faces and hearing their sweet cries upon arrival was the happiest moment in our lives!
All 4 babies are doing wonderfully in the NICU now, with little assistance needed to help with breathing. I am also on the road to recovery and was already able to see them in the NICU within a few hours. We can’t thank you all enough for all of your love and prayers for our family! We will continue to keep you all updated and keep the pictures coming!

    Received this wonderful news from proud Great Grandpa Jim – my first cousin. I must try to figure it out…are these beautiful babies my 4th cousins, are they “cousins, once-removed”? Truly a blessing and a wonderful addition to our family tree. – Cousin Dodie in St. Louis.
