I am sorry that it has taken me so long to update. Things have been crazy, as you can imagine. I’m so proud to announce that our Grandbaby was born on December 25, 2015! She is 3 weeks old and we all love her so much. The labor and deliver went smoothly and our daughter was amazing throughout the whole process. I was able to be in the room for the entire labor and delivery because my sister, brother and law and mom all stayed at our house to take care of Mike and the other two kids. Another cool fun fact is that they came home from the hospital ON MIKE’S BIRTHDAY! What a birthday gift!
As you look at these photos, I hope that you see God’s grace. I’m so proud of our daughter for choosing life. Becoming pregnant at 15 was overwhelming, but God’s grace has really been present through this entire situation. We are closer than we have ever been as a family and we have more joy than we have ever had. I am devoted to guiding Kayla in motherhood and making sure this sweet baby is loved and provided for. We’ve got this.
Mike was able to meet his grandbaby in the hospital and I will share the video that captured him meeting her. The very last few second is the best.
Another exciting fact is that this month we celebrate that Mike has been on hospice for TWELVE MONTHS! Praise God! He is 43 months PAST GBM DIAGNOSIS!
