It's so weird to fall asleep Thursday night, and then not get back into the bed until Saturday at 6 p.m.

It was all worth it though.

Please pray for Jasmine as she recovers.

She was a trooper...so brave...so strong.

At midnight, Friday she arrived at the hospital at an 8. She stayed that way until 3:00 on Saturday when they decided to finally do a c-section.

She labored so long without an epidural.

Pray for a speedy recovery.

Pray for our time here.

We're all so exhausted, but need God to reign over our emotions and feelings.

He's beautiful...

Beautiful.

Heather

Praise God for a safe delivery for all! We will be praying and anxiously awaiting news of our newest family member at Living Hope.

I understand well the pain of a c-section recovery, so I will pray for Jasmine in that as well.

I love you,

Bev Brandon said...

Weeping with you Heather!
When I saw his middle name was Isaiah, I wept all the more. I am reading through Isaiah right now and it is so beautiful! Here's a couple of verses for you and Hudson! Isaiah 23:9 - Your God planned this. Isaiah 41:13 Your God takes your right hand to help you in this and there will be water in your deserts. Isaiah 43:19 - Your God is doing a new thing in all of you. Isaiah 49:15 - Your God has engraved you all on the palm of His Hands. Isaiah 50:2 - Your God's arm is not too short...and that's how you live. So grateful to our Sovereign God on all of you. Congratulations!

And to the precious birth mom - Isaiah 42:3 and I will hold your story in my heart and pray for you.
