•JAXSON TURNS 1• "God loves me, adores me, watches over me, you are for me." Those lyrics penetrate my heart and give me chills when I hear it. But for your grace and by His stripes God saved you! When I think of you, I think about God's grace, His love and faithfulness. Had it not been for His grace and wonderful purpose and plan I don't know where we would be.
On July 18, 2015 I was 22 weeks and 6 days, after 10 long and painful hours you entered the world at 2:08pm via emergency c-section weighing 1lb 2.9oz and 11 inches long. I later found out that you were resuscitated 3 times before stabilizing- you would then settle into what would be your home for 119 days. We prayed fervently, taking each day as it came...you developed each day before our eyes. It took 28 days for mommy to hold you, and 31 for daddy. 2 surgeries, 4 blood transfusions, countless exams, X-rays, pokes, lots of tears before you were strong enough to come home. What a miracle!
When the Doctor's said NO, God said YES! You proved that you aren't a statistic, they said 20% chance but you and God had different plans. Jaxson, you have defied ALL odds and I couldn't be more proud of you and your determination, your will to not only live but to also thrive! Gosh I love you! Your life is a powerful testimony of hope, strength, faith and love. Your life has blessed me and so many others beyond measure. Your life has given me purpose and inspired people around the world!
I pray that God will continue to keep His hands on you and bless you all the days of your life. I pray that you would know who you are and walk in your purpose. Jaxson you will do great things in life there's no doubt in my mind. We may have had a rough start but by the grace of God we are still here, still going strong!
Happy 1st Birthday my little miracle Jaxson. Wishing you continued great health, happiness, peace and success in life. I love you with every fiber of my being. You are fearfully AND wonderfully made and I honor you today and forever!
