For this Child I Prayed...



Jessica has been through so much for several years, I wouldn't even know where to begin. She had severe health problems that resulted in 3 separate surgeries (read her story here), delivered a beautiful still born baby girl almost 3 years ago, her husband lost his job for several months--I could go on and on. All the while she yearned for another baby with all her heart. Finally after 2 years of prayers, she got the news that she was expecting again, but was apprehensive because there was no guarantee that the baby would make it full term. The condition that caused baby JoLynn to die could very well happen again. This pregnancy has been very different from her last--she is on constant watch from both a specialist as well as her normal OBGYN. She gets sonograms every few weeks to make sure everything is going well, wears a PICC line to make sure she is constantly getting the nutrients that she needs and has to give herself shots a few times a day. She's been hospitalized several times, but  made it past 30 weeks and doesn't have much longer before her scheduled C-section date! We are so thankful that things are looking so good and can't wait to meet her beautiful baby boy in about a month!
Jessica, you are a beautiful woman inside and out and I'm so thankful that we are close friends. Thanks for letting me document such a precious time in your life!

Jess found this blanket and immediately knew she had to get it--it sums up the last years so perfectly!


You would not know that it was 20 degrees in this picture--we were SO cold! It was worth it though!
