Jessica's new baby Makayla
My sweet friend, Jessica, just became a mommy for the first time yesterday afternoon to a 7 lb. 4 oz. baby girl named Makayla, who was born with a small opening in her back and will undergo surgery on Independence Day, today. Jessica and her husband have been preparing mentally for their baby who was diagnosed in utero with spina bifida. Jessica's incredible strength and calmness, and enormous love for her daughter, even before her birth has been amazing to me. Little Makayla was transported by ambulance to another hospital while her mom is under care on the other side of town. I plan to visit Jessica today and wanted to make an extra special card for her and this feminine, girly-colored floral design is what I came up with. Please think of their family and remember them in your prayers.
