Keep Prayin!

As we get closer to our due date I am so anxious. I am trying to enjoy the time I have with our little guy. He is so active I would never in a million years think anything could be wrong with him. I pray for healing every day and know that it is possible. I also try and prepare for the possibility of him not living. I read other bogs of other women going through this and I feel like a total wimp compared to them. I cry myself to sleep each night. My husband works early in the AM so I wait until he is asleep and I cry my lil eyes out! I am so thankful for my other children, my youngest is eight and he keeps me busy and I love that! I have been skipping a few doctors appointments, in a denial of sorts, or just wanting to feel "normal". Please continue to pray for a miracle.. knowing that God is fully capable.. please believe that with us.. we pray that his airway grows and is perfect and he is able to breathe on his own when he is born.. Thank you so much for those of you that are praying with us and believing! I will try and post more updates as his due date nears. He isn't due until the end of August (aug 24)but have a feeling he will be born sooner than that.


  1. My heart goes out to you and your family. Your story sounds all too familiar. I spent many sleepless nights crying and it usually continued into the day, my daughter was pretty worried about me for a while. Grant wasn't able to breathe on his own when he was born. We didn't know what he had, but the told us he would never get off the oxygen. A month later....he was tube free, and still going strong. I don't really know what your diagnosis was but there's always hope. It's impossible to keep going without it. We'll keep you in our prayers.

  2. Jenna, like Stacey, my heart goes out to you and your family. Reading what you're going through has brought back so many of the emotions I felt while pregnant with Kai.

    I think you'll be surprised by your own strength--no matter what happens, you'll cope with it and come out the other side a stronger, better, more compassionate person.

    You are in my prayers.

  3. I have been following your blog, and I just wanted you to know that even though your little one hasn't even been born yet, he is making an impact on others. His life is already amazing. God bless you and your family. . .


  4. I understand all of the emotions you are going through! I remember many nights, ok all of them, when I cried myself to sleep over Sonya's diagnosis. Reading this post brings it all back. I'm keeping you all in my prayers and sending you so many hugs! It's hard to believe sometimes, but know that you will get through this no matter what!

  5. Love you Jenny. Praying for you and peanut all the time. Miss you! Call me if you want :)

  6. Hi Jenna,

    I too am praying every day and night for peace for you and health for the little Pnut
    Call me sometime. We should do something together before summer is over and we wonder where it went.

    Love Mom
