The Sextuplets have arrived!

Wow! Life has been crazy over the last 2 days. I have barely slept…let alone get a chance to blog!

My dear friends Ryan and Brianna Morrison had their 6 beautiful babies on Sunday. The incredible thing is I was just came home from a 16 vacation and then fly to Canada on Wednesday…so thankfully I can be here for Ryan, Bri and their families. More then that I get to witness this miracle unfold before my eyes. I was given the privilege of taking pictures through the whole process. As I receive permission from Ryan to release the pictures, I’ll add them to my upcoming blogs. Until then, if you haven’t read it yet, here’s the press release:

Here is the news Press Release: 

(MINNEAPOLIS, June 11, 2007)*Sextuplets born to Ryan and Brianna Morrison of St. Louis Park were admitted to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota just after midnight.   

Four boys and two girls were delivered by Cesarean section at nearby Abbott Northwestern Hospital at the end of Brianna Morrison’s 22nd week of pregnancy.  Brianna Morrison is in good condition, recovering and resting comfortably at Abbott Northwestern.

The births took place between 11:23 and 11:25 p.m. Sunday.     

The girls are named Lucia Rae and Cadence Alana; the boys are named Bennet Ryan, Tryg Brenton, Lincoln Sean, and Sylas Christopher.  

They are in critical condition, ranging in weight from slightly less than 11 ounces to about 1 pound, 3 ounces.   

Ryan Morrison offered this statement on behalf of his family:  “The babies arrived sooner than we’d hoped for, but we are optimistic.  Brianna is doing well.  Thanks to all who are praying for our family.  We are very happy to be parents.” 

Ryan and Brianna Morrison understand the interest in their children; that is why they’ve chosen to share this information.  Now, they turn their entire focus to each other and their children. 

At the request of the family, Children’s will issue no more information until further notice. 

THIS IS AN AMAZING COUPLE with AMAZING FAITH! Keep them in your prayers.

I am hoping beyond hope for a good outcome to the birth of the babies; quite a few years ago now, we lost a baby boy who was almost the exact gestational age as the babies. How precious they are!
Praying that God will keep Brianna and Ryan and the babies in His most tender care. I am saddened that the pregnancy did not go on longer but the angels hover near to this precious family.
We do have a former 26 week gestation child who is now 8 who talks at times about when he “was a baby and could not breathe and he died”. (he did code many times in his NICU course). We think he does remember in some part of his mind what happened because we did not tell him….for he is adopted and we were not notified of him until he was ready to be released from the NICU. He does not speak of the experience with any type of fear so we do not think it was traumatic to him.
Again, God bless the new family and listen as the angel’s wings hover near.

I am a baby from a very premature multiple birth and I know my parents underwent the same stress and greif as Ryan and Brianna Morrison. The couple is my prayers.
