Happy Birthday Taylor! Post From MOM :)

Happy 19th Birthday to my Taylor!! He was born on June 1, 1997, weighing 7 pound, 2 ounces, and 21 inches long (ironically, my smallest baby). It was a Sunday. The Utah Jazz and the Chicago Bulls were in the NBA playoffs together and it was game 6. I went to the hospital around 8 pm because something didn't seem right. As they began monitoring, they noticed that the the baby's heart rate kept dropping dangerously low, so they admitted me for an emergency c-section. During surgery the doctor found the cause of baby Taylor's stress; he was being strangled by the umbilical cord. The doctor said if we had not gone in that day, he would have suffered from severe brain damage or even death. He was born a healthy baby boy at 10:03 pm just as the Chicago Bulls scored their winning shot and won the NBA finals. The final score was Jazz: 82, Bulls: 84. Taylor was named Taylor "Jordan" Heiner after Michael Jordan who had held the MVP title 5 times and scored 41 points on the day he was born. I have always been so proud of my MVP, Taylor Jordan Heiner. He loves life and has so much compassion because he knows what it's like to endure hard trials and pain. He is a fearless missionary and loves to teach others about Jesus Christ and the joy and happiness we feel when we come unto Christ. Happy 19th Birthday Elder Taylor Heiner!! I wish I was there to give you 19 hugs! xoxo, N3, MC, HB, MOM :)
