Paxton David West

This is little Paxton David! He is our Give a Blessing recipient this month. What a sweet sweet boy...and how God has already used him in the lives of others. Here is a little bit from his mommy....

"My husband and I have always wanted a big family. There is nothing better than a house full of screaming, laughing, happy children. So far we had been blessed with two, beautiful healthy children, so we decided it was time to add to the brood. After sixteen weeks of pure joy, I went in for what was meant to be a regular doctors appointment only to find out our third baby had died in utero, four months along. It was a shock and a long road to recovery, so when I found out we were blessed this past January to be pregnant again I was elated and terrified. I did not allow myself to plan or prepare until around 30 weeks "just in case." I vividly remember at 30 weeks, my husband and I making the trip to babies r us to shop for our baby (the sex was unknown at the time because we LOVE surprises) I stopped in the store and began sobbing, my husband asked me what was wrong, and I said "We made it." This baby made it and is going to be ok. I was so scared of losing another baby that I could hardly believe this child was only 8 weeks away from being in our arms. Then, at 33 weeks what was meant to be another routine check up, an ultrasound showed something was wrong with our babies heart. She kept the probe over our babies beating heart for all to long that I knew and my stomach dropped. This is where it all began...."
