Blessed Through Preeclampsia

Posted on Updated on

019Geyen,Cadence-1Wow!  The beginning of summer has definitely caught me off guard…and definitely caught me post-less for sometime now.  Interestingly enough, this post is not going to be of the usual sort, but a plug to check out my wonderful friend’s blog and the story of our Peanut’s birth which happens to be on it!

My friend Nell runs a fantastic blog at Whole Parenting Family and she also happens to be the one that helped me get this blog started.  She publishes a Birth & Parenting Series as part of her blog and was gracious enough to share our story of our little Peanut’s surprising and yet God-driven-every-step-of-the-way arrival.  Writing Peanut’s story allowed me to experience such a flood of thankfulness for God’s sustenance and faithfulness through it all.

So, for this week, rather than spend time at Mom of My Word, check out “Blessed Through Preeclampsia.”  We are excited to share our story with you.

    Wow! I stumbled upon this post quite by accident, and I have to say that it was particularly moving to me. My son was born unexpectedly at 31 weeks, and I went through a similar experience with preeclampsia. Just reading Monica’s words brought back a flood of emotions and memories. 🙂 We spent 2 months with him in the NICU, and I am still floored by the grace that the Lord dispensed daily to sustain us…He worked miracle upon miracle in our midst. I look back at that time with such bittersweet memories. There were so many anxieties and close calls in the NICU, but also so much sweet time with my little one and so much tenderness shown to us by our Father. My little fella is two now and is a daily testament to the kindness of God.
