Baby Maxwell Update

Thank you all for faithfully praying. We’re grateful for your support.

Yesterday, the doctor wanted an ultrasound to make sure everything was good. Baby looked great! Melanie still doesn’t have any labor, but that’s not totally unusual. With Abigail, Melanie’s water broke, and they waited in the hospital for 10 days before an emergency c-section became necessary.

Nathan came home last night for a few hours and spent some time with his girls, while one of the family had dinner with Melanie at the hospital. This morning, John and Anna took the girls up to the hospital for a visit. It was a special time!

They’re taking it one day at a time. Melanie is doing well. There’s plenty of resting and waiting going on right now.

Thanks for praying!


“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
upon them that fear him,
and his righteousness unto children’s children;

To such as keep his covenant, and to those that
remember his commandments to do them.”

Psalms 103:17-18
