Amber just called me, and Jimmie has been born. He is in the NICU and his daddy is with him right now. The NICU team intubated him in the room, and right now he is on 30% oxygen, which is pretty darn good. The NICU staff said they would update in an hour or so.
When they went to take the stitch out of Rachael's cervix, she was fully dilated. She pushed a couple of times, and Jimmie was here! Please pray for the NICU staff, that God gives them wisdom to make the right decisions on how to care for Jimmie. And, pray for Jimmie, that his little lungs grow strong, and that he fights hard!
This little guy needs everyone's prayers right now.
No word on how much he weighed, they estimated about a pound and a half.
Please remember, that there IS hope for little Jimmie. There are many, many babies that make it with no long term effects. Let's pray that Jimmie is one of those "miracle babies".
As I hear anything else, I will let you know.


  1. Praise God! We will be praying without ceasing for your precious Jimmie, Rachael!

    Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. [She] who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with [her]. Psalm 126:5-6

    With love,
    Jennifer and Hannah Ostrander

  2. We are praying for that sweet baby as well! Lots of Love from Nevada!
    Amber Voss

  3. Many prayers for Baby Jimmie. May the Lord give him strength as he starts his journey. May He also keep Rachel and Justin's minds and bodies strong as they endure what is going to be a long road in the NICU.

    Stay strong little one!

    Many prayers from one preemie mom and preemie miracle to another. God Bless you.

  4. We are praying continuously, "that the works of God should be made manifest in him." (John 9:3)

    We love you all so much. Give our new baby cousin all our love.

    Adrian and Janelle

  6. Rachael,
    I will continue to stand with you and your family in prayer. " I know whom we have believeth and am pursuaed that HE IS ABLE to keep that which we have commited until Him until that day."
    1 Timothy 1:12
