Short and sweet – he’s here! A big baby that moved fast to begin and then changed his mind and finished up very slowly (which means a sore, but still thankful mama). As we celebrate his presence, we thank God for his health, my health and the circumstances, chances and miracles that led to his existence.
As we left the hospital, Thomas saw a woman in the passenger seat of a car in the parking lot of the maternity ward, her husband in the driver’s seat, comforting her as she wept. As our hearts are lifted, we are reminded that there is no justice or fairness to these things and pray for those who are still waiting and hoping, still grieving and healing.
