The Lord is so gracious to give us the gift of new life. It is amazing when someone is born into Christ, just as it is when someone is born into the world. Today some of our good friends became first time parents. What a blessing and joy! We are looking forward to making the acquaintance of dear little Adelaide, and we are so glad that everyone is healthy and happy!

I never expected to get all sentimental as a mother, but just thinking about everything Susan and Adelaide and Aaron must have gone through today sticks that lump squarely in my throat as I remember the day Nehemiah was born. It was such a struggle and so intense, but the joy and awe at the Lord's new creation were even more intense. It's been over 6 months, and my feelings for this little love only continue to intensify. Praise His Name and His wisdom!
