Episode 21 - Josh and Megan Osborn Interview Part 4

July 1st, 2018

Publish Date 7-2-18
This is part 4 of a 5 part interview with Josh and Megan Osborn as they tell their family story of their twin baby girls, Finley and Riley, and the shock, uncertainty and eventual heartbreak of going into labor and the babies being born at 23 weeks 6 days and losing Finley only a few hours later and Riley's fight for survival. Last week we learned just 24 hours after she was born they got news that Riley was "crashing" and experiencing bleeding in her lungs as well as a grade 4 brain bleed on the left side. The Medical Team caring for Riley has had the difficult job of telling Josh and Megan all of the many bad things that will likely come from the brain bleed Riley is experiencing. Last week when we left off Josh and Megan were about to tell us how they responded to the medical staff when asked if they wanted to continue Riley's care and how they came to that decision.
​Josh and Megan share a story that is both heartbreaking and inspiring, one that has taken them on journey of faith, hope and love. We wanted to give them plenty of time to tell their story and so that's why it's a 5 part interview.... We so appreciate their willingness to open up and give our listeners a glimpse into such a personal and difficult time. Their hope is that some part of their journey will inspire, encourage and build up others who have faced or might be facing a truly difficult family crisis.
