We created this blog to help us document the story of Malia starting at 29 weeks in utero. There have been and continue to be struggles for Malia and for us. It is evident to us, as you will see, that the power of prayer is mighty and God does love us and hear our prayers. We welcome and invite you to follow along with us. Though lengthy, start from the bottom to get the entire story so far.

A year ago today

A year ago today marks the date that Malia's blog/birth story began. It's so hard to believe a whole year has flown by. With the many sleepless nights and the never ending exhausted emotional days a whole year has passed right before our eyes! Wow, it's so hard to believe that a year ago Malia was ultimately fighting for her life and my life was being compromised in the midst of her horrible circumstances. Those were some of the toughest decisions Harley and I have ever had to make and I can't even imagine making them without the comfort and wisdom of the Lord. Thank you Jesus for always being close and never leaving our side! Today the girls and I went to Chick-Fil-A because a year ago that's where we went right before my 3D ultrasound.(Harley would have gone but he's currently in Kenya) It was a day where we gave thanks for Malia's life knowing that the circumstances could have been very different if I never would have had that ultrasound. Malia celebrated too with a little cut-up chicken, fries and ice cream. Amazing! I just sat there in awe as she ate her food. Praise God! I am so thankful for her life and the abundant joy she brings into our family. She is truly something special!
