Samuel James




Our beautiful little miracle baby arrived on August 4th.
6lbs 9oz, 20 inches long.

He has beaten all the odds, and astounded all the doctors. The big NICU stay we anticipated didn't happen. No ventilator, no feeding tubes. Just a light bed-at home-to combat jaundice. A light bed is so very very doable!
We have been blown away with how amazingly perfect the past few days have been. To have planned to leave your baby for weeks in critical condition, and end up bringing him home instead is astounding.

I'll get around to details and what's likely to come and all that.

But right now, I am totally and completely absorbed in the little miracle that is resting in my arms.

Catey,
I spent the weekend in St. George for a wedding, but you were in my thoughts the whole time. I found out on Saturday that Sam was home with you.
I'm in tears reading your post. What a blessing. I'm so happy for you, Aaron, and little Samuel.
I just can't get over what a blessing and miracle this is. I'm so happy I just can't stop tearing up.
Hope you know we are still here for you with whatever you may need in the future.
Love you guys, Congrats!

Did you get a package from me? It should have been delivered the day Baby Sammy was delivered. Anyway, when I picked it out, I prayed. I prayed as I have done, as I will continue to do.

I love this God hug you have been given. He is good all the time and I'm SO thankful you have time with Baby Sam.
