2 weeks away!

We are scheduled for delivery on June 20th, only 2 weeks away. I am getting increasingly anxious about all of the unknowns. I wake up all through the night and just pray when I am having trouble sleeping that Madeline will get through the delivery and we can have precious time with her. Please pray specifically for her heart, lungs, kidneys, and brain. All that we know for sure now is that she has a large VSD or hole in her heart but she could have other organ issues too. We will know more when she is born.

Brian recently wrote our birthplan for Madeline and it includes all of our wishes on her care at the time she is born. It was so hard for me to read it and try to relate it to our child. I never imagined that we would have to make these kind of decisions or think about such details as we are being faced with. It is just the hardest thing and is really heartbreaking for us but we are still believing that only God knows what lies ahead and we can only prepare ourselves and wait.

I woke up several mornings ago and imagined all of my family and friends in the waiting room as I delivered Madeline and just thought about how great it will be if everyone is praying for us during that time. I know that is what will get us through this. Thank you for your continued prayer and support.

Dear Brian and Mandy,
Mama called this afternoon with your sad news. While I am so thankful that you all got some special time with your sweet Madeline, I know it must be incredibly hard to let her go. We will keep on praying for your comfort and we look forward to the happy day when we all get to greet her.
Love, Christie

I read your post and was about to comment and then go say my prayers, when I learned from the earlier comments about your loss. I am so sorry. Your family will be in my prayers.
