Today is the day. We are going to meet our sweet little boy later on today. Please continue to pray for us, I know you will. You all have been so awesome.
As you can imagine we are feeling all sorts of emotions. On one hand I am excited to see him and hold him. On the other hand I can't help but feel this is the beginning of the end and it breaks my heart. Julia said "I wish he could stay in your belly forever where he would be safe." Exactly. Terry and I are just so sad. Trying to remember that God is in control. God knows Thomas's days and how long he will be with us just as he knows with all of us. Thomas's story is already written. I am praying this time will be blessed and beautiful.
Our prayer requests:
-Strength for Terry and myself, so that we can be strong for the children.
-Wisdom as far as the children go and letting them see Thomas. I want to protect them from pain yet I want them to see their brother.
-Praying that there are not any complications with the birth for Thomas. Henry needed to go to the NICU because he had developed a pneumonia from inhaling amniotic fluid. This would be very bad for Thomas, so I really pray it is an easy, non traumatic healthy birth for him.
-Praying that we can recover in our own room with just our family and not in the L&D recovery room with other patients. Answered! Spoke with the nurse and we have will have our own room!
-Praying for my c-section and that I am not feeling to sick, so that I can be fully present with the time we have with him.
I will have one of the girls update on here as soon as possible with any news.
Thank you for your prayers.
