Sarah’s Delivery Story
“I have been MIA on here for a while so wanted to give a little update on what’s been on the past few months.
On January 9th, I was placed on hospital bed rest due to complications with my pregnancy.
After 6 weeks under the care of amazing doctors and nurses at Northside hospital, our twin boys decided they were ready to make their arrival into the world.
They were soft but tough and fought their way through their time in the NICU to get strong enough to come home.
Our first born, Marshall Thomas Ryan was sent home after 5 weeks in the NICU. His brother John (Johnny) Matthew Ryan followed a week later.
I would say that having Marshall and Johnny at home is a dream come true for Matt and I would be put mildly.
We are endlessly thankful for their doctors and nurses in the NICU who gave them the incredible care and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
We are so grateful for our families and friends who we couldn’t have gotten through this journey without.
And we thank everyone/all of who checked in on us over these past few months. We so appreciate it.
Now after a lack in posting, I will be flooding your timelines with baby photos. Exactly what I said I would never do”

Anyone who’s spent time in NICU knows about the emotions that go with it.
We’re so lucky to have two beautiful boys, and guys that were fighters.”
