Yesterday I surprised Noah with this sweet outfit on Magdalena, and look how sweet they are together! That sweet premie outfit just swallows her! We are hoping to bring her home next week, but she must be able to digest her food so that her calorie intake is up. As parents of a special child we will have to learn a lot of things about caring for her, so please pray for us. I know that God us with the strength needed, but I am nervous about all that will be expected of us. I went to Target to get a few things for her arrival, and I was definitely overwhelmed by what she may or may not need and all that is to come. I didn't think that we would have such a big blessing of even having the possibility of bringing her home, so we are definitely excited about what may happen next week. -Julie

    I love this sweet picture of daddy and daughter. What a blessing to be bringing your sweet baby home! I will be praying that even though you may not have all the "stuff" you may need that Magdalena will feel all the love a mother and father can give and that each precious moment will be savored as a gift from God.

  7. Julie and Noah -
    thank you for sharing your journey. we are friends of the cochrans and it is healing parts of my heart that i did not know still needed healing reading your story. we lost a little girl a year ago march to a genetic condition called triplody, but initially we thought she had edward's. I can remember so much wanting to carry her long enough to meet her - God is blessing me by allowing me to meet your daughter. we will definitely be praying for you as you prepare to bring this sweet angel home - how faithful God is. thanks again for sharing, you never know how God will continue to be glorified in her and through you.
