Weslee Faith

Ben and I are still taking it one day at a time, getting back into our normal routines.. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home this week. My mom was also granted the week off so it's been wonderful being surrounded by family. We've been flowered with prayers, cards, meals, and so much more!!

I know people are interested in our daughter and some specific details about our situation... some things I can openly talk about, others will take time.. Weslee's specific condition is known as Anencephaly. So many people have been asking, so please feel free to look it up. **there are some pictures of other cases so please be prepared

Weslee Faith Mizell was stillborn at 20 weeks gestation.. On 10-24-09 @ 11:07am her physical body came into this world.. she weighed 6.4oz and was 8in long. What's amazing is that we could tell she already looked like her daddy... she had his nose and toes!! I mentioned earlier that she had my long legs, they were very muscular!! My sister and Weslee's Auntie Am got the pleasure of picking out her clothes and dressing her.. how special that was!! The hospital let us bring home her outfit(s) and precious hat(s) she wore!! Ben and I beam every time we talk about our daughter, we're so proud!!

We were surrounded by nurses, CRNA's, and doctors that went above and beyond for us!! Ben and I couldn't of had a better experience; considering the circumstances.. We've felt Gods hand in every angle of this situation. Although we do not understand why this has happened, we trust in his word and know we will dance with our daughter again in HEAVEN!!

Thank you all again for your continued prayers, kind words, cards, love, and support!!

Every day's a good day, some days are just better than others!!

I wish I would have had your faith and courage 18 years ago. Your father said it well - there are times when you have to rely on the prayers of others to make it through certain times of your life! May God give you that peace to rely on others prayers. Continuing to pray for you and Ben, you are embraced by family, friends and church family that love you, fall on them when needed!

Sarah- we have never met. I work with your mother-in-law and I went to high school with Katie and Jason Rowe. I just wanted to tell you that I have been praying for you and your husband, and your families. I pray that you have peace and comfort, and most of all hope, for that glorious day you will see your baby girl again!

My hear breaks everytime I think about what you are going through. But at the same time I am so proud of you for putting it all in God's hands because we will all get to see her one day. I cant imagine how heaven rejoices when we meet our savior, (and you know how we all feel about babys), I know precious Weslee got the most awesome greeting! I am so glad I will get to meet her one day and talk to her about her sweet mama! I love you lots and pray for you daily!

Still praying for you guys--I think about sweet Weslee and you guys several times a day and say a little prayer each time! My thoughts are with you and am praying that you are able to keep your amazing attitude and strength--among other things. I am so thankful that you, Amber, and your mom have been able to spend the week together providing support and strength for one another. What a blessing during this time!

Sarah and Ben,
I just want you to know that we are continuing to include you on our prayer list and will do so in the days and months to come. God, I am certain, has a special plan for the two of you and your future family. My cousin lost a baby this past spring just one month short of term. It was very difficult for her then and continues to be so. I cannot imagine all that you must be experiencing emotionally, but I am amazed at your strength and faith. Our love and prayers for God's richest blessings. D and G
