Today was KKF's first time out in action. I (Stephanie) went by myself this first time, but plan on having helping hands on future projects.
I came to be friends with Lauren through our FB anencephaly support group. And I was honored to be welcomed at Baby Ethan's birth today and help out with the many molds she packed, as well as provide custom art from KKF. I think there were also at least 8 Bibles we put prints in as well.
I'm thankful for Tracy with Be Not Afraid for being the family's liaison. We had actually spoken to each other while I was pregnant with Kendall, but we had never met. I also had the pleasure of meeting another anencephaly mom, which flew in from Michigan to be a supportive friend. With all hands on deck, we formed an assembly line to get all the pieces finished.
"God moment" for me during the day: After a family member learned Ethan was born at 1:15, she recalled having some chills about that time. I hadn't known the birth time yet when she asked me what time I had gotten there. She knew the chills came when I had entered off the elevator... "1:15" I replied. I was the last one to get there... Ethan was waiting on everyone before letting the birthday begin! God was there!
Congratulations to Nick and Lauren on their sweet baby boy!
~Continued prayers for your family~
