Introducing little Naomi Grace Costanzo
Our fourth precious child, Naomi Grace Costanzo, was born yesterday, April 6th.Since she was born 2 months early, she is still very small, weighing 2 lbs 3 oz and is only 14 inches long. She cannot yet breathe on her own, and thus is on a ventilator and a host of other machines. There are also significant issues with her digestive system, lungs & possibly brain, and will likely be in the hospital for at least a couple months.
So far we are doing fine; Jen is tired but is making a great recovery. There is obviously a lot we don’t know yet, but we are trusting in God to take care of our little baby and of us. He has graciously preserved her life thus far, and we know that He will give us what we need when we need it!
Please pray for Naomi’s survival & growth and for her life to be a witness of God’s grace to a watching world. Pray also for the doctors and nurses, and for us as we adjust to the challenges ahead of us.
(Due to the unexpected nature of her arrival, we don’t have pictures yet. We’ll make sure to post pictures to our blog tonight, so stay tuned!)
