|Little Levi’s foot|
It’s really hard to make the transition from your world being upside down to it being almost right-side up again. There is no way I could ever explain the mental craziness that happened this week. It was a roller-coaster of emotions – one minute I was fine, the next I was lying on the floor of Wyatt’s room sobbing because it was the only place where William and Wyatt couldn’t hear me.
It was an experience that has made me stronger and more appreciative. People I talk to now are saying but he still might have brain damage? And William and I answer Yes, but we’ll have him.
I suppose we should still be terrified – but we’re not. We’re hopeful. We know the road with Levi will be a difficult one – but in comparison to the road we thought we were going to be heading down with him – this is nothing.
Yes, he will have surgery once he’s born to remove the cysts, and yes he still has a clubbed foot, and yes he might have some brain damage. But I will be able to hold my son in my arms. I will be able to kiss his little heart-shaped mouth and I will be able to tell him face to face that I love him.
I have no doubt he will be a fighter. I have no doubt that he will teach us all many lessons. And most of all, I have no doubt that his little life will be so incredibly cherished by those who surround him.
You are a strong mama! Little baby Levi couldn’t be blessed with anyone better to love and care for him. Your courage is very inspiring.
Thank you so much Karly! That is so sweet of you to say <3
oh I don’t think you should be terrified – I think you should be so EXCITED because there is a very obvious reason that God decided to place this strong little boy on this earth!! Look out – I see some amazing things in your future!!!!!!! 🙂
Exactly! I feel the same way 🙂 You are just the BEST!
Praying for yours and the baby’s good health and safe delivery. Be strong and God bless!
Thank you Theresa!! 🙂
Good job mama! Staying positive and strong for our children is super hard sometimes. Praying for you!
Thank you so much – it is definitely hard sometimes – but so worth it 🙂
My coworker was told her nephew would not live very long and if he did his life would be really hard. Well this kiddo not only graduated from college with a 4.0, he is now running his own small business and is the kindest soul ever. Every child is an amazing miracle, but some are just doubly so. Your little man will not only be a fighter, he is already loved by many. *hugs*
That is such an amazing story! Sometimes we just don’t know what’s in store for us – and just have to trust what happens.
I thing God has a very special life planned out for your sweet Levi – afterall, HE formed him HIMSELF! I can’t wait to see your family grow and the pictures that are yet to come! You are blessed!
I think so too Pamela! Thank you for being so sweet 🙂
Oh my goodness, what a cute little foot!

You are amazing & a strong woman. No matter outcome, I think you are going to be fine. God has a special plan & everything will work out – I just know. I pray for strength & clarity for you.
Thank you so much Stacey! 🙂
I have been following you for awhile and I am so relieved to hear that that baby does not have T18!! I will keep you all in my prayers that baby is born healthy and hopefully won’t need any surgery. HUGS!!
Thank you Sarah! I hope that too! 🙂
not minimizing your fears at all, but I believe with all that is within me that the enemy just tested your faith… and you stood your ground.
And your baby will NOT have any brain damage or deficiencies AT ALL.
In Jesus Name I am calling this forth for you and your baby and your family.
Thank you so much Mel!
Love his little foot!!! Prayers still coming for you and your family!
Thanks Melianie! 🙂
So many prayers for little Levi! You’re the best mama that little guy could ask for!
You are just amazing, Kendall! 🙂 Levi is so lucky to have you as his mommy and so is Wyatt for that matter!
You are incredible! I have so much admiration for you and I know you are going to be a great mom to him!
