The Lord is My Portion

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. (Lam. 3:24-25)

On Tuesday, April 2nd at 5:15 PM my precious little son – Micah Steven Hisayasu – entered the world. Weighing 9Lbs, 1oz and 21 inches long, he greeted us with a healthy cry proclaiming God’s goodness for all to hear. He passed 3 blood screenings with flying colors, and only showed slight swelling on the lobes of his left kidney. Micah is our very own (big) bundle of perfection. He cries and eats and snuggles just like any newborn should. And we can’t stop thanking God for him.

He has follow-up doctor’s appointments scheduled for yet another blood-test and to continue tracking the development of his kidney, but for now, he is home and he is healthy.

As I look as his sweet little face, I cannot forget what the experts said…

They said there is a large chance Micah would not survive to his first birthday or if he did, that he would be marred by Down Syndrome

They medically advised me to “terminate pregnancy”

They told me there were no treatments and no solutions for Micah’s abnormalities

Now they are saying…

Micah overcame medical probabilities

“Natural development” healed his body

Sometimes these things “just happen”

But I say…

Micah is our little miracle from God.

He is exactly as God intended him to be.

There is no cell in his body that God lost track of or forgot about.

GOD deserves all the credit for this marvelous little boy named Micah.

We are blessed beyond belief by our littlest darling, and the amount of joy he brings us knows no bounds. Titus and Silas adore their sweet baby brother as much as twin 2 year-olds can. Titus loves performing for him, kissing him, and declaring to the world “he’s looking at me” every time Micah opens his eyes. Silas prefers to leave little cars and toys in Micah’s cradle for brother to play with, and can’t go to sleep at night without saying “goodnight baby Micah.”

Thank you for your prayers

A Blessed Mom, Bekah Hisayasu
