Robin Baker, my friend, Doula client and fellow Doula, gave birth to still born twin boys yesterday morning, Wednesday, November 30, 2011.
Robin's Facebook post reads, "Today at 5:58am we greeted our sweet angel twins as they were gently born sleeping into the hands of their mommy and daddy. Elijah Barry & Henry Lee were 1.14 lbs & 1.12 lbs and beautiful as could be at 24 weeks. They were perfect in every way, and passed on to be with Jesus after becoming entangled in each others umbilical cords. We are heavy with grief but comforted by our Heavenly Father who is wise beyond our comprehension and loves us with an everlasting love. Thank you all for your love, support, and kind words and acts of service for our family ♥"
The boys were Momo twins. Knowing they were high risk, Robin planned to move into the hospital this coming Sunday so the twins could be monitored and taken via cesarean when needed. God had other plans and took them straight to heaven instead. You can read more about Robin on her website http://www.birthblessingschildbirth.com/.
Please consider making a donation, a one time gift, towards the expenses that include hospital, funeral, and burial for the twins. The financial burden is $5,000. I will keep you posted and will close the account when this goal is reached. You can use the link below to contribute. Also you can forward this blog to your friends or forward this link in an email.
Robin is a strong and Godly woman that I am honored to call friend. She labored long and was adamant that no one but Mommy & Daddy would catch the baby's. And so it was. Peacefully Mike and Robin Baker gave birth to their sleeping baby boy's.
Thank you for reading this, sharing it with others, and sharing with this family. An offering of your prayers or financial support, whatever you can, is greatly appreciated.
God bless you and your friends & family this Christmas and throughout the new year.
