Dear reader, I'm eager to share the story of the addition of our newest family member, and I have begun work on the post.
While you wait, let us exult together in God's goodness. The birth process seems always to result in an exciting tale which often includes unplanned twists. Jillian's birth was no exception. She came so fast that the midwife, who had come for a routine visit earlier in the afternoon, hadn't had enough time to return!
And, yet, despite the speed of the home birth, the day ended with a deep sigh of peace. We were all resting in God's grace. Our hearts were filled with gratitude for the wonderful gift the Lord had placed in Aaron and Anna's arms. In these photos Aaron and Anna are reclining on their own bed just ready to settle in for a much-needed night's sleep.
