Hi! This is Chelsie, Katie's sister, here to update the blog. It's kind of a lot of pressure! Sorry for those who have been tirelessly refreshing the blog page for updates- thankful we have the Hope for Hallie facebook page!
As most of you may know, Hallie Lynn Green is here!! She was born this morning at 10:45am, 4 lbs, 15oz and 18.75 inches long. This makes her exactly 25 months younger than her big sister Farrah Kate! The nurses at the hospital saved the room next to Katie and Chris's for the entire family to hang out and wait. We didn't have to wait long before we got a picture text from Chris and a nurse came by with some sweet pictures of the new Hallie! Chris came and got Bella and Farrah and the new Green family had some private time as a new family of 5. Christy Martin who is with "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep", so graciously came by to snap pictures of the occasion, so Chris could step out from behind the camera. Once the 'Little Green Family' had their private time, the rest of us got to come in and see her.
We knew she would have a cleft palate and lip. We then learned her heartbeat, vitals and breathing looked pretty good. Hallie still has a very long road ahead of her but we are all excited and prayerful. The outpowering of support and prayers has been overwhelming- for Chris and Katie but also for the rest of us. We are all just trying to soak in time with her and each other. Thank you from all of us and we will continue to try to keep people updated.
Katie and Chris- you guys amaze me with each and every step. I know there is a lot you have to learn and a lot you don't quite understand, but you're doing it together and faithfully. I love you.
