It would be impossible for me to describe the emotion that I witnessed today with Jason, Kelly and their families.Â They entered the hospital with a terminal diagnosis for their son and the anxiety and emotion leading up to his delivery was difficult to process.Â But I can tell you this, in no uncertain terms, I witnessed a miracle when I heard Bennett cry as he was born. He was able to breath on his own. A MIRACLE. This is Kelly getting her first good look at her new baby.
To capture these first, precious moments of Bennett’s life for Jason and Kelly is an absolute honor and I cannot thank them enough for allowing me to share in this very special, very private moment.
I do not use the term miracle lightly; this sweet, little boy is the product of God’s hands.
And when I say I witnessed a miracle, I mean that Bennett’s birth has profoundly impacted my life.
It was amazing to watch him wiggle and hear him making newborn sounds. He even yawned, which I though was just the best thing in the world. Poor little guy was so tired from all of the activity.
A father and his new son.
They transported Bennett to Children’s Hospital for for further tests, please keep him in your prayers. And congratulations to Jason and Kelly on their first newborn son! Praise God!
