As I lay on the operating table I knew there was nothing left for me to do. It was all in God's hands now... as it had been all along. My heart was pounding, my thoughts were racing, and a constant strain of prayers were being sent up to heaven.
Please protect my babies.
Please let them be ok.
Please please please.
At 3:56 pm on August 21, 2011, my life changed.
Our first son was born. He was 2 months early but he came out crying. I don't think I ever felt such relief. He had to be pretty healthy to let out a cry like that. Thank you Jesus!!!!
At 3:58pm our second son came into this world; crying just like his brother!
What a miracle! Both babies born this premature were breathing on their own and showed no signs of distress!
They were taken to the NICU where we were told they would stay for approximately a month - simply because they were so premature and they would have to master things like sucking, swallowing and breathing all at once, gaining weight, and maintaining their body temps. They had no major complications. Praise the Lord!
