About a year and a half ago, in the midst of the festivities surrounding the twins' first Christmas, there is this post. Followed up by this short, but heartbreaking post. Though the road has been difficult, we found out not too long ago that they were joyfully expecting baby #2 in November!
Last night we received word that she went into early labor and their baby had to be delivered via emergency c-section at 26 weeks. Little Boy J is 1 lb. 13 oz., and healthy despite his early entry! Currently, mother and baby are at different hospitals (he was flown to a hospital more equipped to handle preemies that small), and they are looking at a 5-6 month NICU stay. I know they would appreciate your prayers for the long journey ahead - for strength & patience, for comfort & peace, for support & encouragement when they need it most. And we ask especially for prayers for little baby J - that he would continue in his good health as he grows bigger and stronger.
