Thursday morning, after a rough surgery, a beautiful baby girl was born. We heard her cry, and saw her face, her hair is red! Shortly after her birth, she was taken to the NICU because she had some fluid in her lungs and was struggling a bit to breathe. After a 24 hour stay, which broke her Mommy's heart, she was dismissed to the newborn nursery. For five days she received an antibiotic treatment through an IV in her sweet little arm to treat any potential infections in her new little lungs. Late last night we brought our new little princess home to her two sisters eager to hold and kiss her. The ride home was emotional for me, and upon crossing the threshold into our home, I burst into tears. Tears of relief to be home, and tears of joy at what an amazing thing it is to add a new child to our family.
As her big sister said, "she will live her, and grow here, and be ours forever!"
Praise be to God for this beautiful new life!
