Lydia Dawn Keim

Remember in yesterday's blog post when I mentioned Angela and John were going to be parents in 9 weeks? Well... after the most frightening and crazy day of our life Lydia Dawn was born yesterday around 4:30pm via emergency c-section. She weighs 2 pounds 11 oz and is doing well in the neonatal intensive care unit.
I drove down from Grand Rapids yesterday to be with Angela. John is amazing and has been by her side at the hospital. Mom, Dad and I are going back over to the hospital this morning. I don't know much, but I know that we are leaning hard on Jesus and trusting that He is in control.

Please keep praying for my baby sister. Angela will be in the hospital for awhile. She and her precious baby Lydia have a long road ahead. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God's plans are bigger and better. God can do anything - far more than we could ask or imagine.

Here's a picture of Grammy Beeson and John with his baby girl!

Praying for your sister and brother in law and lil Lydia. My son just got discharged from Memorial's NICU yesterday and it appears Lydia is in the same spot Ian occupied for 4 days. She's in great care and the nurses are wonderful and Dr White is amazing.
