"This is a story that is often untold, and overlooked. A raw adventure of fighting the elements of illness, as a young wife and mother by seeking Jesus first. Start from the beginning, and see how the Lord can take a very broken and ill individual and bring about a truly unique LIFE and LOVE story." - BRYNN (& Jeremey and Tatum).

New baby on the way ... no not ours.
As many of you know, Jeremey comes from a big family. He is the baby of 5, 2 sisters and 2 brothers. Including Tatum there are 14 nieces and nephews, so far ... About a month ago we found out that his sister Stephanie is pregnant again. This came as quite a shock and surprise to everyone because of the complications Stephanie has had in the past with her pregnancies. She was actually told after her last baby, that if she were to get pregnant again, that she and the baby would be at GREAT risk. Stephanie has had 7 previous pregnancies. All 7 were C-sections. Her third child Nikki passed away when he was nearly 2 years old, and her 6th child Piper, passed away after being born at 28 weeks. Her family, though full of energy and spunk, and non stop action, has been through a lot over the years, and though we are all super thrilled to have another Wilson/Dorsey to add to the crazy mix, I just wanted to write this blog to ask for prayer for this new little addition. Because of how high risk the pregnancy is, the journey will more than likely not be easy, and probably a bit scary. Stephanie is currently seeing her doctor twice a week for check ups, and as she rounds out her first trimester, so far everything is going well.
Please pray for her husband Nick as well, and her 5 kids, Madison, Ryan, Emily, Luke and Micah as they support their mom on this journey. I know that all the prayers I had during my pregnancy really did make a huge difference, so I wanted to have you all lift this little baby up as well. We know that the Lord has a perfect plan for her family, and want to pray that His will WILL be done! As I was writing this we received a call from Stephanie telling us that she had just gone and gotten an ultrasound done to find out the gender, and IT IS A GIRL!!! YAYAYAY. She wanted a girl, and now Lord willing Tatum will have a little buddy to pal around with for life at family gatherings ...
The picture is of Stephanie and Tatum, just after T was born. Doesn't she look way too good and way too young to be on her 8th pregnancy! You Rock Steph. You are a great mom!
