Happy Birthday Jadon!!

Happy Birthday to my AMAZING miracle baby boy! Eight years ago Jadon Richard was born perfectly healthy despite a grim diagnosis from doctors. We spent months of my pregnancy undergoing tests and being told Jadon had a severe brain damage from to much fluid on his brain. We were told this would affect everything about him even his ability to breath and live.

We were counseled by the top physician in our city to abort him, he would have low quality of life. 

I am so glad we believed the report of the the Lord, instead the doctors. I am so amazed that Jesus carried us through through extremely scary months leading up to his birth and then delivered us from all our fears.

We choose the name Jadon because it means, The Lord has heard my cry. NO matter what we knew Jesus heard our prayers for this baby!

 I did not understand WHY God would allow such testing in our life at he time....looking back I see it was a powerful time of preparation and drawing us near to Jesus. Daddy began pastoring Just one month after Jadon was born

One of our favorite songs from eight years ago was, Whose Report will you Believe?  We sang it all the time while I was pregnant!

Whose report will you believe
We shall believe the report of the Lord
Whose report will you believe
We shall believe the report of the Lord

His report says I am healed
His report says I am filled
His report says I am free
His report says victory

Oh how the victory was shouted when Jadon was released from the NICU with a clean bill of health. I literally held him all night singing out loud and praising God for his life.

Dear Jadon, You are my wonderful, amazing sweet son. I can't believe you are already eight. You have taught us so much about life. YOUR STORY made our family and so many others BELIEVE in MIRACLES! You are funny, bright, energetic and happy, I can not imagine life without you. You already have a great testimony, many people will hear your story and their faith will grow. God has big plans for you little buddy (as Papa called you). You are our miraculous blessing, WE LOVE YOU with all of our hearts!!!

I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.
~1 Samuel 1:27

Oh my goodness! I just have chills!! What an amazing testament to the healing power of the Lord!! I hope that you marched your sweet miracle boy through the halls and into the offices of those doctors that gave you such horrible news. Lots of love to you all and Happy Birthday Jadon!

Praise the Lord, Tesha! And Happy Birthday Jadon! They told us at the 20 week ultrasound that my oldest had hydrocephalus, but we knew it to be a false report shortly thereafter, due to a higher-level ultrasound. A lot of people prayed and he was either healed or they were wrong to begin with.

It breaks my heart that people are counseled to abort. How dare they, really? And I feel it preys on people with no faith, telling them they are not enough to handle this, should it be true. This is not the first such testimony I've heard. Shout this testimony from the roof tops whenever you can, sweet Tesha.

How are you feeling, btw?

Oh Tesha... Wow, what a story!! Thank you so much for sharing it! I've never heard that song. Honestly, even though I love our God, I struggle having faith sometimes. Your story was a beautiful testimony to the fact that God listens and He acts. Thank you again for sharing it. Happy Birthday to your son!
