Hi there! Welcome to the very first post to my brand new website and the very first blog post for Theosis :: illuminating life. I am so honored and humbled to be able to offer this type of service to others’. Let me start out by explaining what Theosis :: illuminating life is all about;
Theosis was started to showcase and “illuminate” the life of babies, whom under difficult circumstances, have shined the light of God and held on to tell their story, to one day share their testimony of God’s love and faithfulness.
This journey was founded on Jeremiah 29:11 which says, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I believe that until these children can tell their own stories, that I am here to help them do just that…share their testimony to others, to give others in a similar situation hope.
So my very first Theosis session was with Jaxon. Jaxon was born at just 26 weeks when his momma developed pre-eclampsia, at just 1 lb, 5 oz…crazy!
Here is Jaxon’s story in his momma’s words…
“Jaxon was born at 26 weeks when I developed pre-eclampsia. Even though I was 26 weeks he was still born about the birth weight of a 24 week baby at 1 lb 5 ounces. He had severe chronic lung disease and was immediately intubated and put on a ventilator.
The first two months we just held out breaths and waited to see if he would survive. We could not have got through with out the overwhelming response from friends , family and even people we didn’t know reaching out to us.
I was unable to hold him and just sat by his isolate until as he grew. By the time he reached his due date we were able to take him off the vent and go to CPAP which meant I could hold him whenever I wanted.
We spent 9 month is the NICU at Helen Devos Children’s Hospital with several ups and downs including one trip home and a very scary return to the ER. After being told Jaxon would be in the hospital possibly past his year birthday, we prayed and the next week Jaxon was stable enough to come home.
He has now been home for 3 months, still requires oxygen but is doing better than ever. We attribute everything to all the prayers and support we have received and most of all the wisdom, knowledge and friendship we received from the staff in the NICU.”
Thank you for reading Jaxon’s story. I hope to have some more amazing stories to share with you soon. Every person has a story to share, don’t be afraid to share your own, you may just help someone who needed to hear it!
