Adleigh comes Home!

(The video took a little while to upload so this was written last night)

We spent the night with Adleigh last night and she ended up having a brady at 4:30 am. It was really quick so they were still okay with her going home, but they gave us the option of putting her on a heart monitor. We decided to have peace of mind and bring Adleigh home on the monitor. So we have had one feeding so far with her at the house and everything is going great! We have waited over 3 months for this day and the car ride home was mixed with this overwhelming gratefulness to God for bringing her home, an excitement to have our baby with us, and nervousness as we left all that we have known for 3 months and being solely responsible for this little life. Thank you so much for all your prayers and I can't wait to tell our girls what amazing people were going before the throne of God on their behalf.

After we spent the night with Adleigh, Liana's doctor came to talk to us about her and now she is coming home...guess when....TOMORROW! Wade's mom is going to keep Adleigh and I have to go to the hospital and room in with Liana during the day for about 8-10 hours so they know that I am okay with her heart monitor and then we will take her home tomorrow evening. Who would have thought that our girls would go home within a day of each other?!?! I am so excited. God has been so good to us and they are coming home healthy and happy little babies.

Here is Adleigh in her car seat about to go home.

Here we are in the car ready to take Adleigh home!

God is GOOD!!! I sit here with tears in my eyes after following yours and Wade and the girls story since they were born. I can't even imagine how you and Wade feel.

May God continue to bless you and your family.

God is so incredibly good!!! I cried when I read this post. Both of your babies are finally going to be home!! It's hard to believe it was 3 months ago that I got a phone call saying that you guys were in the hospital and had had the babies.. I know you have to be so excited right now. I can't wait to meet them in person!

I can't wait to see what amazing things God does through Adleigh and Liana's lives as they grow up!!

God is so awesome, and I know he has amazing plans for your sweet girls! Congratulations!

Ferris,

I work with your friend Sara Bazemore. She shared your blog with me and I have been following your girls' progress for the last month. I am so excited for you that they are at home.
My son, Mason, who is now 2 was born at 28 weeks and weighed only 1 lb 7oz. He spent 91 days in the NICU. I can remember the day we brought him home like it was yesteday. Like you, I was excited, emotional, and terrified all at the same time. He came home on a monitor, which was a saving grace to my sanity.
I wish you all the best in the weeks and months to come. I will continue to pray for your family and look forward to reading updates.
