Musings on Hope was started in 2009 when I was put on bed rest for a very serious pregnancy condition called PPROM. At 14 weeks gestation my water "broke" and I lost all amniotic fluid. We were told that only a miracle could save our baby because without any amniotic fluid our daughter would not develop lungs, and even if she did survive, she would be severely disabled.
Doctors recommneded we terminate the pregnancy, but we refused. Instead my husband and I spent the next 15 weeks praying fervently for miraculous healing. Maggie was born at 29 weeks and miraculously survived. Our journey has been long and arduous, but nearly four years later we are continually amazed at what God has done in our lives, particulary in Maggie's. This blog has chronicled our journey through hospitals, specialists, therapists, and many unknowns. Trying to navigate these waters while still trying to provide a joyful and meaningful for my young children has been my goal all along.
