"God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with special needs doesn't take a special family, it makes a special family."

C - section scheduled

Tanner was scheduled to be born via C-Section on Thursday, Dec 18th! He is to have the same birthday as my sister Emily!

I'm sitting here thinking wow, it really has gone fast! 6 more weeks and I'll have a little one. I'm excited, yet anxious. But am also way happy!

I'm nervous about the c-section, but have hope that everything will be as ok as it can be. I found out that depending on how the c-section goes and how well I do, I might be able to leave the hospital after 1 night to go be with Tanner @ the children's hospital in Phoenix. 1 night is way better than the 3 days I had anticipated!

But in the end, my water broke on 12/14 around 10pm, and Tanner was born 12:24am on 12/15. Guess he wanted to have his own birthday!
