Kyle's NICU Story in Pictures

One year Corrected...

There are so many things in my life that seem to me to be unbelievable.  like....

the fact that I am finally blogging again ( I know it took forever)  hahaha :)
5 months after hurricane IKE we are back in our home!!!
2 days ago was kyle's 1 year corrected birthday
2 days ago was also 1 year from the day we brought him home from the hospital
and most unbelievable of all - Kyle has officially passed his sleep study and is off of oxygen, and has been recommended to come off all monitors (apnea and pulse ox!)  I'm a hair nervous about letting go of those!

It just seems hard to believe but it really is true - 15 months ago all hell broke lose...  figuratively speaking (I think).  and hear i am - over a year later - looking around, sometimes surveying the damage but mostly grateful.  For so long I never thought I could get here.  I can not say honestly yet that I am grateful for all that has happened.  But I am grateful for who I am now - for how I am changing.  For the lives that have been threaded into mine - for those I am so grateful.

each day brings me closer to realizing that I don't have to wait for some milestone to be living my dream but that this is my dream.  :)

I am so enjoying every day in our new house with 3 VERY rowdy little boys!  pics soon - and i learned how to fix my videos - i'll up load some soon - these kids are FUUUUNNNNNYYYY!

Hey there Kelley and John! Praise God! I am so excited for you all... Kyle off of the oxygen, you guys back in your home and the fact that you have three beautiful and rowdy boys. No pressure Kyle, but we want to see the pictures of you running in the backyard with your big brothers! What a blessing!

Much Love and Prayers,

Congratulations! Being without power during the ice storm made me incredibly grateful when it came back on. How much more must you be feeling!

Our Story

This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.

Kyle is in the March of Dimes Promo!
