    welcome, lil’ ian park… KEEP FIGHTING! 

    ian park 

    my cousin sung tae and his wife, sara welcomed into this world their first child, ian park…

    now, let me go back a bit.  my life seems filled with many people who have kid(s), others who are expecting, and those trying to have kids.  kids convey such a sense of hope, innocence, goodness (not all the time, i know!).  there’s a couple at our church who recently had a scare and they thought they were going to have to deliver 5+ mos. into the pregnancy.  praise God, the baby is okay, safe and still inside.  mom’s doing good too!

    back to my cousin and his wife.  saw them over the thanksgiving holiday and several of cousins were trying to guess the expected birth weight for ian when he would arrive next year.  i guessed 7lb. 6oz.

    then, just like that… got a call from my cousin telling me i was way off of the real birth weight.   (More …)

      Nothing is more important than our prayers in such circumstances. I would pray vervantly for Ian. Please keep me informed of Ian’s conditions so that I can pray together with my bible study group in HK for Ian closely. Don’t lose faith in God, cos everything is possible in God.

      Welcome to the world Ian. If your parents would like to keep a journal of your journey please come to http://www.momentbymoment.com.au/cafeprem
      This site was set up after the birth of our own daughter at 27weeks weighing 861grams or 1lb 14ozs Please know your not alone in this journey. Many travel the journey only a little and some travel far. No matter how long you travel it is still worth celebrating. This time in a premmie babies life is filled with what if and waiting. Try to see past all the equipment and see the beautiful baby that is there. It is a time that we don’t expect but try to enjoy Ian… I know that sounds strange but what I mean by this is take the time to talk to him and to read him a story he will know your voice and he will respond to it. Also dress him if you can because this can provide a bonding experience don’t think oh I will wait tilll he is older to buy him a gift make sure you grab every precious moment with both hands and cradle it in your heart.
      George just be there for your friends and let them know that you think of them. If you don’t know what else to do.. Do practical things for them get dinner for them on your way to the hospital or provide them with a basket of fruit or nibbles to have on hand when ever they get hungry.
      Please let me know about my website this can be a great way of communicating with others about Ian and I also have other information on my website so you can learn about premature babies as well. I also have a gift shop that I have set up since finding very little for premmie babies when my daughter Airlie was born.

      take care and lots of strength, growth and love to baby Ian
