For the 9 1/2 years I've been privileged to be friends with the Woman withe White Minivan, she has struggled and fought against her infertility. Two years ago, she finally seemed to make peace with it. Then God surprised us all when she discovered that she was miraculously pregnant last year.
This morning, he arrived! My little godson! I have welled up with tears of gratitude all day. He is here! I don't have a picture yet, but if he looks like either of his parents then he's a beauty.
She thanked me last week for helping her to carry this cross all these years. ( I guess that makes me her own little Simon of Cyrene.) "You've been there for all of it, even the ugly parts." She told me. "As much as you've prayed for him, ached with me, and rejoiced? He's your baby,too." Oh my dear friend....he's yours and the Air Force Guy's little miracle. I'm honored just to get to share in the joy.
Stats? Baby N weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 12 oz and is 21.5 inches long! He's huge! I'm giddy! I can't wait to hold that big ol' boy in my arms and sniff the baby head!
