Joey + Rory, welcomed their beautiful daughter into the world on February 17th of this year. Indiana Boon Feek was born at 8 lbs., 2 oz. and was delivered naturally at home, which Joey says in a new blog post was the “single greatest thing she’s ever experienced in her life.”
Joey goes on to explain in the blog post,
“There was some concern about Indy and through genetic chromosome testing done at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, it has been confirmed that Indiana has Down Syndrome. Although that news came at first as a surprise to us, Joey and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. During the pregnancy, we never did an ultrasound, or saw a doctor, nor would it have made any difference if we had. We trusted that God would give us the baby He wanted us to have… and He has. Out of all the parents in the world, He has chosen us to care for and raise this special gift.”
“The baby is healthy and doing wonderful and Joey and I are loving each and every minute that we have with her. We can’t wait to see where this new chapter in our lives leads us and what wonderful story unfolds in the coming years.”
The couple has cleared their 2014 schedule and committed to taking this year off to be home and simplify their lives. You will be able to follow along with Joey, Rory and the family in Joey’s new blog at http://thislifeilive.com.
