our bundle of joy
it is with great joy we welcome
fabienne joy michau
6 lbs 2oz, 18.5 inches
we already love this little girl to pieces. she is beautiful and was born with a full head of hair just like her mother. she came with surprises from the start, coming almost 4 weeks early [not at ALL what mom was expecting!] the labor & birth went extremely well and i am quite pleased i went drug free just as i was hoping. fabienne had some complications after birth. although we are awaiting test results, we are fairly certain these complications are due to down syndrome. little fabs is a trooper. no mother or father can ever be prepared to see their little baby all hooked up to wires and monitors. it has been extremely difficult not to be able to hold her or sleep in the same room as her. around 11pm fabienne was transferred to the NICU at Strong. although we know the path ahead will not be easy, we also know that God is faithful. we will keep you updated as we are able. we so greatly appreciate your prayers. pray that the doctors will know what she needs to grow strong. pray for strength for us & the rest of the family. pray that fabienne will be able to come home soon. thank you for all your love and support.
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
