A new baby!

Abigail Jennifer was born Nov. 6th at 1038 pm. She was 6 weeks premature and weighed 4 lbs. 10 ounces, and was 19 inches long. I experienced a placental abruption and hemorrhage (and pre-eclampsia) and underwent an emergency C-section.... praises to GOD alone that we are both here and alive. Our sweet girl is in the NICU, but is doing well. She is now in an open crib, holding her temp, on no supplemental oxygen, and is taking breastmilk from a bottle. We are just waiting on her to gain a little more weight before we can bring her home! I can honestly say that leaving her there is one of the HARDEST things I've ever gone through, but my heart is so full of thanksgiving and praise, it outweighs some of the sadness. Please keep her (and our family!) in your prayers as we continue to heal (and for my blood pressure to continue to return to normal... yikes). Soli Deo Gloria.

Much Love,
