Jill Pagels said...

Well our computer is an ancient piece of you-know-what and is sloooow as can be, so I never get to watch your videos, but I imagine it is adorable. You always take great pictures, so I can imagine how good the video is. Anyway, my prayers continue to be with your family. God bless.

birth2adopt7 said...

There are no words that fit my emotions, maybe.....WOW...I needed that! I so appreciate being able to share a small glimpse of the joy Gweneth is bringing into your lives. God is so good! I happen to have some very special children myself ;>)) and have spent those countless hours beside a child in a plastic box, simply drinking in the miracle that God has created. Each little detail being permanently etched into my heart. And this will be a mean thing to do to you....because I may transfer the curse....but having the words and tune to the song, 'Falling in Love Again, Never Wanted to, What am I to Do, I can't help it"....with a french accent of course ;>)) running over and over in my head.

The Beaver Bunch said...

Wow. Simply amazing.

Hollee said...

Emily said...

As a first time mom I can imagine the joy that was pounding in Tricia's heart as she held her daughter for the first time. This is a moment that has been a long time coming and I am so thrilled that you took the time to share it with all of us. As always I am pryaing for you guys. I know that you all are looking forward to MANY more moments as a little family. May God bless you today!

Little Gwyneth looks so happy to finally be in her mommy's arms...such a look of peace and contentment on her face and I love when she opens her eyes up a bit to look up at you Tricia...precious moment. The love for her mommy :)

Wow...what an awesome start to my day, thank you again for sharing.

Sending you all lots of hugs and prayers :)

Carol said...

That was so beautiful, have to watch over and over. Love everything, the joy in Tricia's eyes, the little raising of Gwyneth's eyebrows as she tries (and succeeds) to open those eyes, how warm and safe she looks in Mommy's arms and trying to imagine what joy you must all have been feeling! So wonderful to touch and share the comfort of that touch. Love and prayers to you all.

Emily said...

I just love how Gwyneth opened one eye and peeked at her mom. Very sweet.

Dorm Mom said...

I'm crying! Congrats Tricia. What a great day!

Becca said...

I don't know anyone who could watch that and not cry! I LOVED it. Thanks so much for sharing that special moment with us. And with Gwyneth...you have a strong personality there lol. I loved watching her "fix" her hat after mommy pulled it down. So very cute, funny, and just plain wonderful!

One Happy Family! said...

Whew, thankfully I waited to watch that video until I got back from taking my sweet boy to pre-school! I would of looked like a wreck when I dropped him off had I not. That is the most amazing video. I think Tricia's eyes say it all. You could see her smile in her eyes. How priceless and I think I even saw sweet Gwyneth give Tricia a little "wink" :)

You made my day!
Sarah

anita said...

Ok, funny story - I had a dream about Tricia last night! Which is really funny because we don't really know each other *that* well... but anyway, we were in a suburban, Tricia was sitting up front and her mom was driving (whom I have never met) and as she drove, she was watching a Cowboys game that she had recorded. (go figure) Tricia's sister (also, whom I have never met) was in the back seat with me. We laughed and had a wonderful trip to a place where there were a lot of stairs, which was really fun to push Tricia and her sister up in a wheelchair! Only to find that when we got up the stairs, the door was locked & we couldn't go in... but we laughed the whole time...
What in the heck do you think THAT means?

Love y'all!

Amanda said...

Ok, that has me crying at work (thanks a lot) j/k. That was beautiful. Such a precious moment, when a mother gets to hold her child for the first time. Made even more special by the miricle that Gweneth is. Thank you very much for sharing such a personal, wonderful moment with all of us. It made my heart smile.

Adrienne said...

Oh, it is so good to see that baby with her mama! I held my dd for the first time at 3 days old (she was in the NICU for a heart problem) and I cried. I can't imagine how you felt holding her after all these weeks.

Beautiful, beautiful... and wow, that precious baby gets cuter everyday!

danabrown said...

Nathan, I don't even know if you remember me, but I went to your dad's church for a couple of summers home from Liberty. Dana Brown. Anyway, I was just linked to your blog from another friend's blog. Her husband has cancer and she wrote a post about things that inspire her and you, your wife, your daughter's story is one. That's how I ended up here. Oh, my heart goes out to you. Tears. And heart. And prayers. You are clearly an amazing husband. Ya'll are an amazing family. I just want to pass along my support and I couldn't find an e-mail address for you on here, but I'd love to get in contact with you. My e-mail address is: missdanalbrown@yahoo.com.

God bless you. And hug you.

Audrey said...

As the Auntie of a preemie, and the sister of a Mama who didn't get to hold her baby for 39 days, I remember how breath taking that exact moment was for her. I can only imagine how Tricia's heart must be bursting with happiness right now. And Miss Gywneth looked awfully peaceful in her Mama's arms....right where she belongs.

clara said...

I wasn't expecting that! It brought tears to my eyes, just seeing them together, so close. Thank you for sharing that!
There is nothing more beautiful and perfect than a mother just holding her child.

littlelu said...

Tear, Tear. Oh how beautiful. Words can not express the emotions that you feel when you see a Mother's love. She knew mommy was holding her for when she opened her eyes for just a second. That was to confirm that she loves her mommy and it is going to be alright. I can't wait to see God's continued blessings upon this little one.

Shannon said...

That is the best post ever! I pray that Tricia and Gwyneth will have many more moments as sweet as that one. Thank you for sharing such a special moment with us. You did it beautifully. I was crying 2 seconds in.

Jarboetwingles said...

I just don't know what to say but I will give it a try! Amazing! When you have waited so long and prayed so much to finally be able to hold your child! Nothing else quite like it in the world is there Tricia! Now when do we see the first diaper changes?

A MIXED NUT! said...

Nate and Tricia,
Thank you so much for sharing your story. That was the best post ever. I think I cried more joyous tears for Tricia than I did the first time I held my own children for the first time. Tricia, I hope you get to hold her more and more every week.

Always thinking of all of you:)

Jen said...

beautiful. I am so happy for you tricia. :)

Judy said...

Tricia, I'm sure your arms have been aching for that moment for the last two months. Even though you haven't been able to spend much time with your little girl, she is going to grow up knowing what an incredible mom you are. You have made so many sacrifices just so that she could have life and I know that God will honor you for the choice you made and I feel confident that God has incredible plans for Gwyneth's life. Jesus has carried you both this far and He has not finished the work He has begun in you!! He will be faithful to complete it!!!

tears are streaming down my cheeks. That was one of the most beautiful scenes I've ever witnessed in all my life. I praise God for what I've taken for granted: being able to hold my son whenever I want. Thank you for opening my eyes.

Tricia, I know you have held your baby in your heart all this time but what you must have felt to finally get to hold her in your arms! It brought tears to my eyes watching the video and seeing, even under a mask, the grin on your face! Praise God she is doing so brilliantly! You two are so blessed and what praises you have to be in this position of receiving miracle upon miracle. You'd never have known that without all you've been through so praise God for allowing all of this! He has His hands on you all! Your baby girl is absolutely gorgeous even if she does look just like her daddy! lol! Our daughter looked like her daddy at first too but now she looks entirely like me! You three are in our prayers and we can't wait to hear more from you!

What I find completely amazing is that Gwyneth can be so tiny and yet still so perfect...

Congrats to Tricia on getting to hold your baby girl! Thank you Nate for sharing your story with the world! May God bless you richly as you continue to seek Him!

I'm so thankful that you shared that so very private and special moment with all of us. You have inspired me to do some videos for my family. I'm off to watch Cinderella with my baby girl and thank God for the specail gift he gave to me. I can't wait to hear when Trica and Gwyneth are doing Mommy and Me things.

Susan said...

Thank you for that beautiful moment. After I had my son it all seemed surreal until I got to hold him and touch him. I can't even imagine the range of emotions you both are going through. I'm still praying for you all! I can't wait to see when you all get to go home as a family, healthy and happy!!!!

When I saw your post that said big news to come, I was hoping and praying that a transplant might be happening soon. I'll keep praying for that...

This was so beautiful. Even with most of her face covered by the mask, Tricia's eyes say it all. I can only imagine how wonderful it must have been for her to finally hold sweet Gwyneth in her arms.

God bless.

All I can do is cry. I take so much for granted. You have blessed my socks off. You were sitting there holding your baby girl and even through the mask you were wearing, I could see your smile. Thank you LORD!!!
