Our Miracle Baby

  On Monday, September 9, 2013 our son was born.

He is our true miracle.

Curtis Glen Chase, Jr...aka...CJ (short for Curt, Jr) came into this world early at 28 weeks and 2days by C-section. He weighed 2 pounds and 13 ounces and was 16 inches long.  Hearing his little cry was the most amazing blessing. He came into this world fighting and remains fighting in the NICU. CJ has tolerated everything in the NICU wonderfully and is in critically stable condition. Critical because he was born so early, but stable in that he is reacting wonderfully to everything the NICU staff is doing to help him.  Curt and I couldn't be more grateful to all the staff for their great care of CJ. He is truly in the best place to help him.

I am slowly recovering and adjusting once again to this life journey we currently find ourselves on. Thank you all so very much for all of your support, prayers, and well wishes. Once I have regained more strength and stamina, I'll get started on a post of the details of CJ's birth.  Right now, my top priority is trying to recover enough strength to spend time with the newest and tiniest member of our family of 5.

  1. I'm glad to hear he is responding well to everything they are doing for him! He will remain in our prayers. So will you and the rest of your precious family. Congrats on that baby boy!

  2. I've been following your posts regarding CJ and I'm happy to hear he's doing well! You guys are in our thoughts and we hope for continued progress for CJ. Congrats on your little miracle!

  3. Praise be to God that CJ is responding so well! Have you been able to introduce Big Brother and Big Sister, or do the NICU rules not allow it? I'm sure they will be the best protectors and biggest cheerleaders for little CJ. I pray that you continue to regain strength as you recover from the c-section, and that your faith in God continues to remain as strong as ever. Sending many blessings, prayers, hugs and well wishes to you and your family of 5!
