Phoebe Elaine surprised us with an early arrival on April 23, 2012! After a quick and easy delivery, I suffered some complications. It was a wild ride, but it’s been a great reminder as to how precious life is. I thank God for his blessings and provision, and I thank my doctors and nurses for their quick action and hard work. I also thank all our friends and neighbors for their love and support.
I’m a broken record when it comes to newborn posts. I always say “life is precious.” But it’s true! There’s always a moving story behind a baby’s birth. It’s always remarkable and special. Nothing is predictable or certain, and with each baby I meet and each story I hear, I am moved by the miracle.
Here are some images of our hospital stay from immediately following the birth to the day we went home.
