Our big church wedding turned into a small simple wedding since our little peanut arrived 3 months early…but it’s okay. Our sweet baby boy is the light of our life and he comes before us! I’m still so excited to marry my best friend and the love of my life! I can’t believe the 30th is right around the corner! 💑💐💍 #soontobemrs #excited #tyingtheknot #lovemylittlefamily #weddingstuff #nicuparents
I wouldn’t trade being a preemie mom for the world. I love our son so much! He’s such a blessing to us. Everyday we get to see him make progress and grow! He’s so little but so strong. God is good! 💙 #nicumom #blessed #godisgood #miraclebaby #faithoverfear

People tell me, “I don’t know how you do it..I couldn’t watch my kid fight for their life”. Or I get asked “How do you sleep at night” and “How can you smile about your son’s situation”. Yes, it’s hard to watch your baby boy fight for his life. But I believe that God is capable of so much, even things that we can’t even imagine. The reason our son is still living on this Earth is because of God. Our son is a miracle that we received from him and he has shown us many miracles following our son.
- We were told that Zethan had bleeding on both sides of his brain, a grade 2 on one side and grade 1 on the other. Shortly after, we were told that he only had bleeding on one side, which was a grade 2. Then a few days later we were told that the bleeding was resolving. Today we were told that the bleeding is still at a grade 2 but still in the process of resolving.
- We were also shown a x-ray of his lungs and in one of his lungs were what we were told by one of his doctors, millions of small cysts, that could grow and cause his lung to shut down. Then the doctor had told us that day, that the cysts had almost completely resolved themselves and that there were next to none.
God is good and we thank him multiple times a day for blessing us with our little miracle and for all the miracles that he’s made happen for him.
That’s why I keep a smile on my face and don’t worry too much, because I have faith. I know that God is going to be by my son’s side every single step of the way! 💙🙏 #nicumom #blessed #miraclebaby #micropreemieparent #godisgood #smile
"Hello. Right. I wanna say something that I thought I’d never actually talk about. Before we wrote ‘Sempiternal’, I was a fucking drug addict. I was addicted to a drug called ketamine. I was on it for years, and I was fucked off my head. And um. My band wanted to kill me. My parents wanted to kill me. My fucking brother wanted to kill me. Everybody didn’t want to take me too well. But they didn’t. They stood by me, supported me through all that shit. And we wrote sempiternal because of it. And no one fucking knows, no one fucking knows this but I went to rehab for a month. And through that time, as well as my fucking band and my family, you guys were sending me… You had no fucking idea that I was in rehab but you were sending me letters, you were sending me texts, you were sending me fucking emails. And when I got out of rehab, I didn’t want to scream anymore. I wanted to sing it from the fucking rooftops. And it’s all thanks to you. So thank you very much." -Oliver Sykes APMA’s Speech
Idk how many times he cussed lol but its still amazing to hear his story to overcome and then wreck everything with passion!!
Never did I think baby Zethan would be here so early…he’s our little heaven sent blessing! Seeing him connected to his breathing machine and having an IV in his little hand is hard. I just want to hold him. We believe God is right by his side with angels getting him through. Baby has his bad and good days. But he’s making progress! We love him so much! Please continue to pray for our little fighter! 💕👣 #blessed #godisgood #zbv #oureverything #ourlittlemiracle #nicumom #prayersneededplease #faithoverfear
Zethan Blaine Valdez…mommy loves you so much. You’re doing so well and I’m proud of you! I long for the days where I can hold you and give you little kisses on your cheek! 👣😘 #zbv #ourlittlemiracle #sentfromheaven #oureverything #prayersneededplease #babybeanie
