My name is Mari. I am a wife to Paul and mother to Lucy (4 years old), Vivian (22 months) and Noah (still gestating!). Noah is sort of the reason why I'm here. At 26 weeks pregnant, my water broke and I have since been in the hospital awaiting Noah's birth. It has been tough emotionally, physically, and financially, but we are determined to get through this. We still have things to figure out, like how long we will be staying and visiting in the hospital. I am trying to get my baby to 34 weeks gestation before the doctors perform the necessary C-section, and as of today that's about 5 weeks away. After that we are unsure how long baby Noah will need to stay in the NICU receiving care. The possible cost of hospital bills is currently unfathomable in my mind, as I spend each blessed day trying to take it easy and relax so as not to affect my pregnancy with negativity. On top of that, once the baby is ready to come home, we will need to purchase a vehicle that is capable of holding 3 car seats. These things are weighing greatly on our hearts and minds because we are uncertain about if and when we will ever be able to afford them. So here we are, shamelessly depending on the kindness of strangers to help see us through. We thank God for His provision through all this. We also are thankful for anyone that He places a burden on their heart to assist us. Thank you for reading my story.
