Jackson’s Birth Story (Sara’s Story, A Reblog)

I know Sara in real life, and we as the community have actually been praying for Jackson since he has been born. Sara was brave enough to ask me to help her edit her story as she wanted to reach out to other families who may have gone through something similar.

Jackson’s story is one of a miracle baby. A story of how God provided and how His hand never left even in hard times. Please show Sara some support and read about the power of God.

And thank you, Sara, for trusting me with your story ❤

I ran into the yard to wave Jason down. I dragged him into the house and showed him. We immediately started crying, right there in the entryway to our home. 7 pregnancy tests and a doctor’s appointment later, we had it confirmed, we were pregnant!
