The Stanfield Daily News :-)

Praise the Lord!

I just heard from Kenzie and she was filling out discharge papers! They watched baby Faith all night and she had only one noticeable deceleration, no pattern so she is looking great! Kenzie will be heading home today on bed rest. So she will get to spend more precious time with Deacon before Faith arrives.

Please continue to lift this family in prayer. He will sustain them!

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”- Isaiah 46:4

I just want you to know how encouraged I am by your blog...by you! The closest tragedy I've been through to losing a child is losing my first husband. He was struck by a car as he walked across the street...We were in college and my faith was not strong at all...I nearly died. He was my high school boyfriend and first love.

God is good and I married again. I'm 29 years old and currently 17 weeks pregnant with my third child. I have two boys. My best friend had a beautiful baby girl that lived for 29 days, born with trisomy 18. I walked through that journey with her but of course she wasn't my child. I just can't imagine the pain you've experienced. I can see you've experienced the Lord in such a real way. I often times get overwhelmed by fear, thinking something horrible will happen to my husband. If I can't get in touch with him, my mind starts seeing the police officers at my door telling me something terrible has happened. I know this is the enemy wanting me to live in fear, but I just can't imagine all you've been through.

I'm awaiting my ultrasound next week and trying not to expect bad news. So many people can't wait to find out if the baby is a boy or girl. It never crosses their mind about the development. I know one healthy child does not guarantee another. My husband, a family practice physician says that even when you get a heatlhy child, we are never assured they will stay that way. Life is full of trials. Knowing the One who will carry you is the ONLY WAY.

Thank you for sharing your story.

Thank you for letting a cyber lady have a little less worry in her day. Thanks for updating on Kenzie, even though at the moment she can't. I am thrilled to hear that she is going home, and pray that she and baby Faith continue along to their expected due date, and even if it isn't exactly the due date.. at least a little closer to the finsih line for all of them. Thank you again for being here and updating from a stranger in Canada!

"The Stanfield Daily News."

You are too funny Kristy. I just love how God has them covered as their blog seems to maybe have been hacked again like last month. I am praying for them and for Kenzie to get good rest at home. Praying for you too sweetie. You are so special to me.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

Thanks for sharing your story.

My sister's little miracle baby - Baby Gracie - passed away from Trisomy 18 at 25 hours old.

Such a life-changing thing! But God is good. Please pray for her if you think of it.

Thank you and praying for you!

I have a question for you. I have been thinking about how difficult it is for mothers (well actually parents, grandparents anyone really) who have experienced a loss to answer the "how many children do you have" question. It has changed the way that I talk with people. I am trying to be more open to feeling someone out and not ask as many questions as I am accustom to.

However, there are times as a nurse that I need to ask these types of questions. I work in the NICU and when I am preparing parents for discharge it helps for me to know what kind of experience each parent has. I was wondering if there is any gentle way of asking. Has there been anyone who has phrased this question in an easier way. I was wondering if perhaps "Do you have any other children at home?" might be an easier question for someone to answer. Perhaps there is no easy question but I would like to try to find something.
Any insight you could give me would be great.
(And I do always try to check the chart...we usually make notations for previous losses but it is sometimes missed.)

Kristy-

I just wanted to tell you "formally" how grateful I am for you posting about us while I was in the hospital and while the blog was MIA. You are such a wonderful friend and I am so thankful for your love and friendship and prayers!

Continuing to pray for you and your family... for the good days and the hard ones.

Love you,
Kenzie
