'Twas the night before Ollie,
and all through the town,
everybody was praying; everybody knelt down
to bless this sweet child
with good health and love
from all of her warriors and God up above.

Tomorrow at 9AM we check into Barnes-Jewish South in St. Louis. 

I will labor while Jade stands by my side...as we silently pray for our baby girl.  We long to see her sweet face, stroke her tiny hands, and kiss her cheeks and forehead.  She will know how much she is loved by so many so soon.

 Please pray for us tonight and tomorrow as we start the real journey with Ollie Faith.  Emotions will be high as we welcome our third child into our family, and as Aubrie and Everett meet their tiny sister.

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!"
Psalm 139:13-18

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
1 Corinthians 13:7

Ollie is perfection in God's eyes.  He has a plan for her no matter how many chromosomes she has, and no matter what her heart looks like...she is a miracle...and a gift that Jade & I are blessed to love and parent together.
