I am married to my best friend and high school sweetheart, Tyler. We got married December 30, 2005.
We were so excited to find out we were expecting December 26, 2008!
On May 14th, 2009 at 24 weeks pregnant (about 5 months) I had P.R.O.M. (Premature Rupture of Membranes aka my water broke VERY early). Click here to read more details.
July 5, 09 after almost 8 weeks of bedrest in the hospital and at 31 weeks 5 days pregnant, I developed severe preeclampsia and they did an emergency c-section.
Lincoln Tyler was born 12:54am July 6, 09! He was 3lbs 6.8 oz and 15 3/4 in. long. Lincoln was never on oxygen, which surprised doctors and was doing amazing but after Lincoln's birth I came down with Class 1 H.E.L.L.P Syndrome (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes, Low Platelets) Click here to read more details on what happened the week after Lincoln was born.
Lincoln spent 6 weeks in the NICU before coming home and now he is a bundle of fun and energy at 2 1/2 years old! He has NO lung problems (the dr.'s told us he would have severe lung problems for the rest of his life from the lack of fluid). And I have returned to full health...Praise Jesus!
My pregnancy experience and being blessed with our precious boy has forever changed our lives. I'm thankful everyday for our little miracle. Together Tyler and I have walked this crazy road and we can't wait to see what God has in store for our future! I'm currently pregnant with our second little boy and we are in the process of pursuing the adoption of a 1 year old boy through the foster system. Life is full and we are blessed!
Thanks to all who have decided to walk with us!
Visit the "Preeclampsia Foundation" for more information on Preeclampsia and Hellp Syndrome.
Since then we have had two more beautiful boys added to our family, Caedmon Jay and Dietrich Jon.
And now we are adding to our family through adoption! We are currently foster parents who are licensed foster to adopt. So we are loving on babies for as long as they are in our home which could be a couple weeks or forever!
