As we enter the toddler phase of Jaxson's life, it is becoming more apparent that a TIME OUT is needed...not for him, but for his parents! Becoming parents was life changing for my husband and I, as I am sure it is for most. With everything we went through to get him here and healthy, its truly been a whirlwind. When Jaxson was born prematurely, my husband and I were still newlyweds
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.
You may be going through a fight of your own, be it a health challenge, relationship or marital issue, dysfunction on the job- I want to encourage you to dig deep within yourself and pull out the fight that's within you. You have courage and the power to fight through whatever hardship you may be faced with. Sometimes when life hits us hard, we just want to pull the covers over our heads and hope the issue resolves itself. Even when I wanted to do that, I knew I couldn't stay in that place.
