Prayers Appreciated!

I was on the phone with our birthmom yesterday and she was having major contractions. She headed to the hospital around 6:18 pm and we didn't hear anything again until this morning around 11:00 am! The agency was calling to tell us they had no new information. UGH! So finally around 5:00 I broke down and had to call the agency. Nope, no news.

The deal is birthmom has some serious health issues, baby is breech and big so they are wanting to do a C-section. Well, she just called a short while ago to tell us that baby will NOT be born in the next couple of days. Apparently, she will be 38 weeks this Tuesday and they did an amnio and they are saying babies lungs are not ready yet?! So they are giving her medication to stop or slow down contractions and steroids to help babies lungs develop quickly.

Please, please pray for birthmom and baby's health. Birthmom is very uncomfortable, retaining fluids, and so tired. Of course we are anxious for baby but my heart is focused on mom right now. I feel for her and know how miserable this pregnancy has been for her on alot of realms.

So our family would appreciate your prayers and we will sit back and wait for The Great Physician to do His best work and excitedly look forward to holding our new little one.

Thank you so very much!!!
