Journey to Parenthood

I want to be purposeful about journaling during this time in our lives as we watch our miracle micro preemie, Asher, continue to grow and thrive. I began this blog during my month of bed rest at the hospital while I was pregnant with Asher and his brother Titus. We continue to hope and trust the Lord for Asher's future. This blog begins with the story of how both of our boys came to be. They came about after many tears, many prayers, and many months of crushed hopes. On February 2, 2012, our boys Titus Bauer and Asher Mark were born at just 23 weeks and 2 days gestation. My water around Titus broke at 19 weeks, so his lungs were very underdeveloped. Titus lived 45 minutes and is now living a perfect life in heaven as he watches over his little brother Asher. Two and a half years later God redeemed our story of hurt with a precious full term baby brother for Asher. We are humbled by how the Lord has loved on us in our journey through parenthood.

More coming later on this past week of roller coaster events..but here's some recent pics for now... my sweet hubby and new, shorter..easier- to- manage- on- bed- rest -hair. Plus, a much bigger room! A few bright spots among the hardest week yet. We were blessed by those who prayed Sunday night, the many messages, and continued love from everyone.


  1. Love the pics! You are beautiful! I am thinking of you and praying for you often.


  2. Saying many prayers for you, your families and friends. I have been keeping up with you through Kristi and will keep you all in our prayers. I stayed in the same room you are in on your 1/31 post.
