The Five Minute Friday word for today is “Share.” **Make sure to click on the image above to find other great posts from the linkup.** Here goes:
I can’t wait to SHARE with all of you the good news that my newest little nephew was born on Wednesday! Ein Gabriel came into the world around 8:30am and weighed 7lbs 3 oz. Such a time of relief and rejoicing for our family!
I can’t share about his birth without sharing some of the journey it took to get here. He is truly a miracle baby since my sister-in-law started having signs she might go into early labor during the week before Thanksgiving. Through the many ups and downs and scares and being pretty much on bedrest much of that time, my brother and sister-in-law were a great inspiration to me with their faith in God’s hand on it all.
Part of this was because little Ein has a big sister in heaven, Imogene, whom they lost at 5 months along in the pregancy a year and a half ago. It all makes this new baby even more special and precious to our family.
With him, first we all prayed to make it to 28 weeks and then 34 weeks and then finally to get as close to the due date as this little guy needed. Well, he made it into the world RIGHT ON HIS DUE DATE, March 9th!! After all those months of hoping and waiting and praying God’s timing was perfect.
