Today was a good day. Shannon gave birth, ahead of schedule, to Gabriella Marie who was born at 2:30 pm. It was a quick and beautiful birth. Shannon is doing well as preeclampsia pushed us into the early birth. Gabriella was with us for more than 2 hours. (She was diagnosed 6 weeks ago with Trisomy 13 so we knew she would not be with us for long.) Shannon and I were able to be with her the whole time and help her onto the next journey, to be with our heavenly Father. Oh! She was 19 ½ inches and 5lbs 7oz.
Thank you for your prayers and love-
