The twins are here!

For those of you that haven't heard yet, Jaymie and Kory's twins are here! Jaymie went into early labor on Sunday, March 25th at just 25 weeks. They tried to stop her labor, but they couldn't. They were going to take the twins by c-section, but the little girl was already in the birth canal, so they delivered her normally, then took the little boy by c-section a few minutes later. They were born just after midnight on March 26th.
They named the girl Jayde Spencer and the boy Kanyon Luke. They are so tiny! Jayde is 1 lb. 12 oz. and Kanyon is 1 lb. 9 oz., and they are about 11 1/2 inches long. They are on little ventilators, but they are stable and doing as well as can be expected. Jaymie is recovering fine and they should release her from the hospital in the next day or two. She and Kory are handling all of this so well. They say they can really feel the prayers of all their friends and family and feel that everything is going to be OK.
Jaymie and Kory and these sweet little babies have a long road ahead of them, so please keep them constantly in your prayers. For now I'm going to be giving updates (I'm Rachel Spencer, Jaymie's sister-in-law), but when Jaymie gets home this will become her blog where she will keep everyone updated on their progress. Feel free to leave comments for Jaymie and Kory.

I have been praying for you guys! I also had a good laugh that your babies were born the weekend the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie came out. Hee! Hee! Maybe they will be a huge fan like their mom!

Kayci gave us the news.
Congratulations. Know that our prayers are with you.
We know what it feels like to wait on a precious little one in the NICU and the Lord's healing hand. May God bless you with an extra measure of peace as you wait on his timing.
A psalm that gave us great hope... Psalm 138...

"The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
your love, O LORD, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands."

We look forward to the day we can rejoice with you in the homecoming of your precious babies.

With much love,
Keith and Martha Rogers

Dear Jaymie and Kory - We watched as the Lord did great things for Isabelle and we are praying that He will do the same for you. He is the great physician and he loves you all so much. Our prayers will be constant and fervent.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases", and He says He will "never leave you or forsake you". Hold fast to His promises, J-me and Kory, and know we are lifting your family up to His throne room every minute.

You are never far from our thoughts. We continue to ask the LORD to guard these little lives. We look forward to seeing the babies in person. The DC family also holds you up in prayer. We love you

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. 2 Thessalonians 3:16

I'm wishing you and your family the best. I heard about your story from my church family. You are certainly in my prayers. It is for little ones like yours that I participate in WalkAmerica with the March of Dimes every year.

Dennis & Karen Seyfert said...

Jaymie & Kory + Susan & Wes (GMA & GPA). We are certainly praying for you all. In Isaiah God promises: "when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor the flame burn you. . .you are precious in MY sight - you are honored and I love you. Do not fear, for I am with you.

My dear special people,

What a difficult time this must be for all of you.I know your coming together will strengthen you. Our prayers and thoughts wing upward everyday. May our loving God hold you and those babies in the palm of His hand.

Kory and Jaymie,
Congratulations on the birth of Jayde and Kanyon. As you know, they are special little miracles given to you from God. We will be praying for everyone involved in their lives and especially for their health. Love to all of you.

It seems ridiculous that I am posting a comment on a post from 2007, but I thought this the appropriate place. My name is Devon and I'm a friend of Holly's. I have just spent a long while reading your story and have cried tears for your sorrows and your joys. I know what a tough journey my sweet friend has been on and am so, so thankful that she had someone there for support. It was so hard on all of us so very far away who wanted to be there to hold her hand. Thank you for stepping in and becoming such special people to them. God's blessings on you and your family!
