Hope Maxine Rollins

On October 19, 2008 Hope Maxine Rollins was born into our family. I was 40 weeks and 5 days into my pregnancy and about Midnight on Saturday night I went into labor and everything was progressing well. At 10 am we went to the hospital and once we were checked in and in our room the nurses brought out the fetal monitor. From the moment they put it on my belly they couldn't find a heartbeat. The ultrasound machine was brought in and the dr. found that her heart was no longer beating. At 10 pm that evening I gave birth to Hope Maxine. There were no signs of trauma, infection, or anything. About 50% of the time there is no reason found for why a baby is stillborn. She was 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and 20.5 inches long. She has long legs and big feet just like her daddy and she has the Yeates chin. We feel blessed to have Hope be part of our eternal family. We know that the Lord must have great plans for her and us. We are so blessed to have the support of our families-we couldn't ask for more from everyone. Thank you to all who have helped us these past weeks and for all of your love. We know Hope will be well taken care of with all of our loved ones who have passed on, but we still miss her and want her back, but we need to be patient for now.
