So in my hustle and bustle of writing out the trama on my part, I totally forgot to mention the amazing parts in part 1 of the Hank Saga.
Firstly, I forgot to mention the fact that Taylor was there by my side the entire time and for that I could not have been more grateful. He was my birthing coach, my sanity check, and the most adorable person I have ever seen when he held our baby. He also managed to get Corin set up with some AWESOME babysitters, held his ground when it came to decisions that needed to be made, and just overall a very patient husband while I was a not so patient patient. :/ Seriously, could not have made it through that experience on my own in the delivery room... He was my glue.
Secondly, I don't think I have ever prayed in a 24 hour time period... okay, maybe not a truthful statement, but I definitely did not pray that hard during the births of Corin or Owen. I knew that my midwives and family were there praying for me and ready to support me and help out. This time around, I was a little more stressed. By little I mean, well... I was FREAKED!!!!!! Good thing I had Tay.
Thirdly, I don't think I have ever felt as blessed as I had at the joy of being surprised! For 6 months now I was lead to believe we would be having a little girl and was a little nervous about what to do with a little lady in the mix. I was also a little dissappointed that I knew what we were having when I really enjoy the surprise at the birth. But low and behold, God fooled the doctors and I was given the joy ( and shock) of hearing "It's a BOY!" (Mind you, we STILL had not picked a middle name for who I though was to be Dylan. But we did however, for the third babe in a row, have the boy name settled and ready to go!) Yay for little boys! Did I mention the fact that I was also feeling super blessed with the safe delivery of a healthy baby boy to look after while here on earth after losing Owen only two years ago?! Well, I felt super blessed. I feel super blessed. I AM super blessed with an amazing husband and father to the two amazing children we now have.
Fourthly, did you know that it cost less than $300 total from first doctor visit to hospital check out to cover all our medical costs?! Did I also mention that we were gifted an amazing amount of baby supplies from friends and family both here in Korea and the States?! The Lord totally provided for us in every possible way! Our Heavenly Father is such a gracious and loving God. I wish I could just give Him a great big hug. :)
Okay, stay tuned for a part three and I will finish the saga... promise. AND post more pics of Hank the Tank! :P
