Quinn's Birth Story!As promised here is our story of the birth of our latest "little treasure".
The Lord saw fit that Quinn's birth was going to be different then any of our other births, After much prayer and getting counsel from all of our Dr.s we decided to be induced because he was not coming naturally, and we were at 41 weeks along. I was scared to death, I've only every heard bad things about being induced and had no desire at all to go down that road. But the Lord uses godly men ( Our Dr's. ) to help counsel us to go ahead and get induced.
The date was set for Monday April 23, 2012 at 8 am. 41 weeks and 1day pregnant!
Sunday night I rocked Aiden to sleep one last time as "my baby" I almost cried. his little world was the one that would change the most in the next few days!
I feel asleep that night praying for our sweet children and the changes that were going to take place in their lives. they were each super excited that Quinn was coming tomorrow and had a hard time falling to sleep.
Monday morning... Our babysitter arrived and we took a quick last picture as "a family of 5 " .
With quick kisses we were out the door.
We got unpacked and preped, and began the process at 9 am.
by 9 pm. we decided because I was so tired that we would go with an epidural. it was about 11pm when we go it started. but 11: 20 I was needing to push. they sat me up and I was complete and ready to push!!! I was over joyed that it was finally here, and Lord willing I'd get to hold our baby boy very soon! I pushed for 6 minutes, and He was here, but Dr. Proter and Jon began to work really fast. the cord was wraped around his shoulders in an X shape and was keeping him from coming down. they put him on my chest for a for minute and then whisked him away to give him oxygen and that's when I heard his first real cry, and this Mama cried too! It was a scary few moments for me not being able to see what was going on. We are so thankful for our Dr's. and the wisdom the Lord has given them. With everything happening so fast I had to ask if Jon even got to cut the cord. and he did!! :)
and in the end I got to enjoy the epidural for the last few minutes of being sewn up. :)

Please keep us in our prayers as we go through this journey to lead our children, and raise them to honor the Lord and "Lord willing" some day soon each will come to know the saving power of our Lord. and His sweet forgiveness.
