This baby is named Zeke, which is short for Ezekiel.. Ezekiel means “God Strengthens” and we can see God’s hand on Zeke from the very beginning. He kept him alive through two surgeries at 7 weeks and 12 weeks gestation. His birth was at times scary, but God was taking care of Amanda and Zeke the whole time. At 12 hours old he had major abdominal surgery to repair an intestinal blockage. This boy is now three weeks old, he’s finally gaining weight. He is home after 15 days in the NICU. We are so thankful and so very blessed to have Zeke home and well. I could not wait to photograph him.
