July 7th 2009 Grayson Thomas Thompson is born!!

We are so happy right now. Grayson was born today and we heard him cry. I never thought I would love to hear a baby crying, but I sure do love to hear him. Him crying means he is still with us. Against all odds Grayson not only made it to term, he made it to delivery and is still with us. Kristi is doing well... I'm having to type for Kristi and catch up the blog since she is not quite up to typing. Grayson came out face first so he is really bruised up. His little face looks like a grape. His eyes are swollen shut and his little face is PURPLE.

A professional photographer volunteered her time to take pictures for us. Her name is Crystal Goss and she is truly an amazing person. The pictures she took are absolutely perfect. I sure wish she had been there when Kinsey was born. We would like to share a slideshow with everyone that Crystal put together. The link is: http://www.crystalgoss.com/#/graysonthomas/
There aren't words to describe how grateful we are to Crystal for what she has given our family.

Grayson did well today. We are so proud of him.

Grayson is just beautiful. I loved the slide show. If only every baby could be born into the love evidenced in your pictures. Many strangers such as me are lifting you in prayer. We are all the same when we intercede in prayer for a precious new life. I am forever blessed by so many things from your story, the ladybugs on the grave of little Kinsey especially. You two are braver than soldiers marching into battle and great witnesses for true faith in God.
Continued good days with your son,
Gale

They are precious in His sight :). So glad you chose life for your sweet boy.

What great photographs...the one with the eyedrops about to go in his eyes shows what a great photographer you had; the attention to detail and the emotions captured - wonderful! Thanks for sharing your experience with us that way.
