My Miracle Baby

Beth at "A Mom's Life" has inspired me to post about my big miracle.

I thank God every day for the presence of our son DV in our lives. He was born when I was only 27 weeks pregnant. I developed HELLP syndrome and ended up in the hospital. Eventually, they needed to perform an emergency C-section which had perfect timing because a placental abruption was also discovered.


DV was 2 lbs 4.5 oz when he was born and stayed in the NICU for 9 weeks. Today even the doctors say you can't tell he was a premature baby. We had so many people and prayer chains praying for us both before and after his birth- he is a miracle baby.

I thank God every day for the miracles in my life, the small everyday ones, and especially my miracle baby!

Look at him now!

What a little cutie!

God has blessed you and your husband with the best miracle of all - a baby! And your son is testament to the fact that pray does work.

Thank you so much for sharing your miracle!

He looks like fun! I have three boys myself. So glad that everything worked out well for your little miracle baby - I definitely feel that God has allowed mankind to advance in science and medicine to provide a way for His miracles to happen. I was reading your profile and am happy to find a fellow chemist! Although that seems like a past life almost, I have been home with babies for almost 4 years now. Thanks for reading my blog too.
