These two beautiful boys are Aidan Christopher (top) and Nathaniel Jacob (bottom) where born last Friday. At 27 weeks 6 days gestation. They are the identical twin sons of friends of ours. People all over the world have been praying for these boys and their parents. The smaller of the two, Aidan, is not supposed to be here at all according to his doctors. He was known as the donor twin as the boys had TTTS (twin to twin transfusion syndrome.) Nate's echocardiograms were showing a thickening of his heart walls.
And so we prayed. And prayed. And passed on prayer requests for the family and prayed. And they are here. Doing well. It might be Christmas before they are home. But they are coming home.
I can think of no better way to end this post than with the way that their mother, Kathleen, has been ending her emails.
Psalm 18: 1-6, In my distress I called to the Lord, I cried to my God for help. From His temple He heard my voice, my cry came before him, into His ears. 18:16, He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters.
