Our Miracle Son

On Sunday, November 20th, our precious son – Josiah Jisung Lee – was born at 4:20AM, at 29 weeks and 4 days, weighing in at 2 lbs. 6 oz. and 15 1/4 inches long.  His expected due date was February 1st, so he arrived into our world about 10.5 weeks early.

Josiah is currently in the NICU at the children’s hospital and is recovering well from his first surgery (which took place on Monday).  The picture above was taken on Monday before he went into surgery.

There is so much to share with so many at this point (and many questions to answer) – prayer requests, how Josiah is progressing, how we’re doing right now, what our life looks like, etc.  And we will do our best to share what we can, when we can, and this blog may just become the perfect place to do that with you all.

But above all else, there are two resounding truths that are permeating every hour of every moment these last five days – (1) we are just so grateful that Josiah is alive, that the Lord is ever so present and near to us, and that there are so many who are reaching out to help and support us on this long journey and (2) God’s Word is the final authority, He is the Great Physician, and He is not done with Josiah yet.

In the hours after I got discharged and we saw Josiah for the first time at the NICU…when we had to come home without our son for the first time…when we lay in bed praying and crying together for the first time as parents…when I felt the void in my womb…there was a clear answer that rang across the vast unknown of our souls.

This son will be a miracle…a testimony of the greatness of our God and that He is alive and able to do the impossible.  All for His glory and for His namesake.

So, we hold onto that truth today.  We cannot wait to see how our God will cause His Word to come to pass in our lives.

      Thank you Ann! Your prayers really do mean so much to us because that and His grace is what is sustaining us at this hour. We have been so blessed by the outpouring of prayers, calls, texts, food, etc. and we could never repay this debt! We just know that whenever the time comes for us to give to others, we will do so knowing how much it is touching our hearts right now. It’s truly so beautiful to see our circles of friends and family reaching in towards us at this time. Love you Ann and praying you are having a very beautiful holiday season 🙂

      Amen and amen!!! We are declaring that truth everyday over him…regardless of what is being said about where he is at. We so appreciate the doctors and nurses and modern medicine! But we also know He is the Great Physician and He has the final word!
