Held her Today

I was sad that I did not get to go to the hospital yesterday to see sweet Layne, but that face today made up for it! I didn't even think that I was going to get to see her! Walt and I went to take her some clean clothes. I didn't want Walt to go inside because he is definitely a germ carrier, but Hamp was SOOO nice to sit with him so that I could visit sweet baby Layne. Walt is going through his "needy" stage, so he did get a little fussy out there. That was the only way I could have stopped holding Layne! She is so snuggly and sweet! I didn't have my camera with me, so you will just have to take my word for it!

Please pray for Hamp and Kristina as they are spending all day at the hospital caring for Layne and learning her special needs. They are going to have THE BEST hospice nurse EVER when they go home....can you take a little guess who it is?? Magdalena's nurse, Rosa, will now be Layne's nurse! Noah and I love sweet Rosa, so we are so excited that the Gastons get to be blessed through her work also!

Layne is still blessing our world right now as she snuggles with everyone. Her body did not fully digest her food fully twice in the evening, but it returned to doing it properly in the morning. Pray that her food gets fully digested! Also, pray for Layne's big brother and sister. I haven't been sure exactly how to pray for them because this time can be so confusing for kids! So I will pray that God will watch over them and their little hearts and that He will use their little sister's special life to bring them into his arms.

    I have been following your blog since you had Magdalena. You are such and inspiration. I know that the Gaston family feels so blessed to have you in their lives as they experience the same miracle. Please continue to lift them up and I will continue to pray for you and their family

  2. What a special experience to be able to be with Layne and her family!

  3. This made me vividly remember coming to see y'all in the hospital and how Noah took Addie down to the lobby to get "white ice cream" so I could go and see Magdalena. I am so glad you got to hold this sweet and special baby!


I love to hear from you!
