Grief + Joy in the Midst of the NICU with Catherine Barber
In this episode, Catherine Barber shares the birth and life story of her daughter, Emma Holcomb Barber. Emma was born as a micro-preemie, at just 22 weeks 3 days gestation age. Weighing 1 lb 2 oz, measuring 10 in long, doctors assigned very low percentages to Emma’s life…but God! On the day she was born, Catherine and her husband Paul publicly declared, “We pray that God uses her life to give us even more boldness to share His power and love for the Kingdom.” God gave them that strength and boldness through 160 days of miracles in the NICU, a special homecoming for Emma in July 2020 when she met her big sister, Annie, for the first time, and a new ministry that was inspired by Emma’s story.
