She's Home!

Fast forward three months, and our life has changed dramatically again.

Our sweet daughter S has been home for just about a month and a half. After exactly two months in the NICU, with no out of the ordinary complications, we feel so blessed just to have her here with us. S came home on oxygen and an apnea monitor, but we are hoping she will be truly "wireless" within a few months :).

Adjusting to full-time parenthood is going well. We are exhausted, but what parent of a newborn isn't? In some ways I feel like I have finally "arrived," all I have ever wanted to do was to be a stay-at-home mom. I don't think it's hit me yet that I am really done working. I still feel like things are going to change again, this doesn't feel permanent yet.

We have so much to thank the Lord for. As I've been reading tons of books and blogs on preemies, I am finding out just all the possible things that could have gone wrong in little S's body...and yet in His Divine Providence didn't. Thank you Lord! She is absolutely beautiful, we are truly fearfully and wonderfully made.


  1. Hi, Rachel. My tears are flowing as I read beautiful, little details of your precious miracle. God bless your wonderful S and may God be glorified by your faith. You have truly blessed me tonight!

  2. Thank you Tanya!I am always encouraged by meeting other preemie moms :).
    Olivia Faith's story was a pretty big miracle too!God's hand is clearly at work in these things. We are so blessed to have such a Father.
