Our Miracle Arrives!
She chose to wake us up at 3 AM to get the process going, but we were delighted to finally welcome our second daughter into the world. Madelyn Grace was born at 10:56 AM on Tuesday morning, weighing an impressive 8 pounds 11 ounces. (I guess what's impressive is that she outweighed her sister by over 3 pounds!) She was 21 inches long and just a real cutie.
I know that you can scientifically and medically explain everything that happens at the time of birth, but it is still an amazing, miracle-type event. Every step of the process from the time Madelyn was just a single cell until the time she was born had to come together in such a precise and profound way. And to top it all off, not only does everything function properly, but she is endowed with beauty (like babies are) from day one. I'm not sure how anyone could be in a delivery room at a time like that and not believe in a good and loving Creator. We are blessed by the GRACE of our wonderful heavenly Father.
I pray that you are trusting in Him, as we are, in this journey.
Tired, but filled with incredible joy,
