The Miracle of Life

          I witnessed a miracle this morning. What other word can even begin to describe the birth of a child?
         At 3:16 this morning, Haven Evangelist Eddy was born. My mom had been planning on having a home birth, but since Haven was eighteen days late, we decided to have him induced at the hospital. They broke her water, and he was born less than four hours later with no complications.
        As far as statistics go, he's 9.11 pounds and 22 1/2 inches. He has quite a bit of dark hair, as you can see in the pictures, and definitely looks like an Eddy. :)

      I am overwhelmed with joy and love for this little one. What a perfect, beautiful miracle. 
      God is good. :)

  1. Riah, you will be such a huge part of Haven's life. He will look up to and love his big sister all his days. The life you are living day to day in your home with your family is bearing eternal fruit right now. You are modeling how a yielded life is transformed by the work of God's grace. I couldn't be more proud of you, and rejoice with you in the coming of this precious baby into the family. What a thing to witness, a new life come to fulfill his role in this world as designed by his Creator. Wow!
