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.

Asher's Heart Surgery Postponed

Asher Update: We just talked to Asher's doctor and they've decided to postpone his heart surgery. He's doing a lot better right now and he may not have to have the surgery if things continue to improve. As with any roller coaster you get the ups and the downs and we're thankful for this up time today! Thank you for all of your prayers and thank the Lord that our little 1.5 lb baby isn't going to have to have heart surgery tomorrow on his 1 month birthday!!!!


  1. That's such good news! I'll continue to pray!

  2. Praise God! We have been praying God will heal him and that he wouldn't need to have surgery. Will keep praying to that end!
