|Our sweet girl just a few minutes old (and the first time I got to see her!)|
That afternoon, our sweet girl came out silent, but kicking. While she was beautiful in our eyes, she looked a terrible gray color and was immediately receiving help from NICU staff that was present. Another blessing from the C-section was that NICU staff were already present per hospital policy. God knew what he was doing making this baby breech! Instead of Derrick carrying Aubree out in his arms as was the plan, she was wheeled out in an isolet with our family and friends only getting a glimpse of Aubree on her way to the NICU.

So beautiful and such a fighter even then!

Aubree has also brought so many people to the feet of Jesus, crying out to Him to heal and comfort this sweet baby. So many prayer warriors and some praying for the first time in a while have come alongside us and prayed on behalf of our sweet girl. And, what glory God gets when she has improvement, shows signs of healing, or even remains stable. Our great God is definitely in control, yet hears and answers the prayers of His people.

So sweet that she worked so hard to help make Aubree's birthday special in the hospital.
