Thank you all for your prayers and support. The last two weeks has been exciting to say the least. With Hannah in and out of the hospital twice for concerns about babies (sometimes) low heart rate and me needing to take care of the boys and wondering when baby would come had left feeling pretty overwhelmed and just plain old wiped out.
And then all those feelings and stresses just vanished as we all piled into the minivan at 11pm on the 20th to make the 1hr drive to the hospital where our friends David and Naho met us to pick up three very sleepy but very excited big brothers so Hannah and I could go have a baby. I will let Hannah tell the full birth story later but for now I just want to say that it was amazing to see how God planned for baby to come in the timing He did and to be reminded over and over during the birth that God really does have our best interests in mind and that He really does care for us.
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures. The Bible – James 1:17-18
