Brought to you with permission:
Today at 5:30 Eastern Standard Time, Erin delivered Griffin Jacob naturally, without any need for induction...he died in utero. He weighed in at 12 ounces and measured 10 inches long. Erin said he has Jackson's nose, George's jaw line and a muscular build like a long, lanky basketball player (Erin has a great lean muscular build but she probably didn't say that so she wouldn't be bragging...so I added that part).
Erin was grateful that she was able to go into labor on her own. Earlier today the doctors did an amnio where they injected some sort of blue fluid and then waited to see when or if it left her body. It came out immediately, meaning there was a tear in her placenta.
She said she and the nurse and her mom have taken a lot of pictures because a photographer wasn't available due to the quick delivery.
Tonight Erin and George will have a blessing service to dedicate Griffin Jacob to the Lord.
If you are interested in Erin's contact information, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll get back to you as soon as possible. She does not know how long they will keep her at the hospital.
Thank you so much for your prayers. Erin said she could sense God's peace beyond measure.
