I know you all are so concerned about April and anxious to hear how she is doing. I'm so sorry there have been no updates for so long. I have stepped back to allow D to protect his family as he has chosen to. I want to respect that. There have also been no updates because the focus has shifted from the blog to what is going on with April right now. As it should.
we have received so much hate and accusations the last 2 days through the internet both on here and in our email.
i have read and heard and seen it all. a doctored image of our girl with red horns and a tail, emails about how we have done all of this for cash (for the record we have never taken in any donation money or checks. the only person who has gotten money from this blog is PASS Pregnancy Care Center) at this time it is too much.
people are entitled to believe what they want. people can say that we are cons or whatever else they would like to say. we know our hearts, so do our friends and so does God.
we do not plan on ending this blog but at this time there is no room for the hate we have received. this is not the time and we only wish people could see that as truth and not continue spreading lies and speaking hate to a family trying to live life. to those who have supported us with prayers....the most important thing anyone can do is pray and so we will continue to post prayer updates and information but at this time that is all we can do.

Raechel again. I'm going to be posting things/details as I hear them on this post. I want to leave the "April is HERE!" post with just that news.
2:00 Sunday afternoon - B is pushing. April is doing well so far and will be here soon.
Lord, be near.
*original post follows*
Hi everyone! My name is Kelli and I'm here with B and D. Yes I'm here! I'm in the other room :) but can tell you what's all going on.
It was a long night for them. I got here at 5 this morning and could see how tired everyone was. Things were progressing slowly and there were concerns with that until about an hr ago. Things now look better.
There has been a lot of talk with the midwife and a midwife assistant that is now here about concerns and decisions about if April is born alive. It looks like this will happen and they are determining what they will do in different scenarios. For example if they will check her here or take her to the hospital and how long they will wait.
B is now 8 cm and this has been the hardest time for her so far physically and mentally. I am sure she would continue to appreciate your prayers. Me, Raechel or someone will continue with updates as much as we're able.

Hey y'all, it's Raechel. It's Saturday evening now and, while there is not much to say, I want to keep you all as updated as I can.
Hey y'all, it's Raechel. It's Saturday evening now and, while there is not much to say, I want to keep you all as updated as I can.B is having frequent contractions now and is up and moving around. The midwife is there, probably for the long haul at this point as they expect this is only going to progress. Active labor is only just beginning and B has a lot more work to do before April comes.
The glorious news is that our April Rose is handling all of this BEAUTIFULLY and her little heart is doing fine. Everything looks great on that end. She is a champion and this news is such a source of joy for her Mama and Daddy right now.
Even still, B is very tired. They both are. This process, as many of you know, is so physically exhausting. Add to that the nerves and fear of what they do not know, and you can just imagine what these hours are like for them right now.
Here is what D told me just a few minutes ago:
"An update would be good but not sure what else you or we could say. She is really trusting God but is very sad. We have prayed and talked a lot. She is listening to the song 'Unfailing Love' on repeat. She is a great mom already."
Of course, I think we already knew that. :)
We are praying that things continue to go well with April and that B can handle labor well. Please be in prayer for this little family through the night as God lays it on your heart. I will do my best to post updates as they come.
I'll close with a verse that B asked me to share with you all. It has been running through her head all evening.
