Chelsea Faith

I am very proud to introduce the newest member of our family, Chelsea Faith. She was born on March 18 and weighed in at 7 lbs. 2 oz. She is perfect in every way (of course hubby and I are partial). I ended up having a much more difficult labor than anticipated and had to ultimately have a c-section. I'm still recovering from that as well as adjusting to being a new mom and the round the clock feedings! I'll probably be offline for a week or two until I get my bearings back!

This was Chelsea's going home outfit. My mother-in-law handmade the sweater. So soft and cute with room to grow so she will get some good use out of it.
Thank you to all of my wonderful friends out there that have provided me with such love, support, and guidance. This is certainly a wonderful, exciting, and magical time of our lives.
Hugs and kisses to you all,
Karla, Jeff, and Chelsea

I looked up your blog after seeing your post on Jason and Ambers blog about Trisomy 18. I am so happy that your daughter is perfect and oh so beautiful! I refused an amnio after our quad screen came back at 1/32 for tri-18. Our level II u/s came back perfect so I didn't want to risk my sons life just to have 100% peace of mind. He's due Oct 31, 2009 so we have less than 9wks before we get to hold him and see him and know for sure that everything is ok. It's very very comforting to find yet another positive outcome to a scary situation. I know that he is fine. I feel it in my heart and soul but there is that very tiny percentage that pops into my brain every so often. These posts are helping me cope with that fear. Thank you and God bless you and your family!
