At 10:39 AM, August 13, 2009, Lydia Ann Gray joined the breathing world. Everything progressed marveously at the hospital and Becca’s operation went smoothly. There were no complications and Lydia was healthy, screaming and kicking. She weighed in at 7 lb 7.8 oz and measured 18 inches long. Becca’s parents have visited and seen the new addition and Nathan has now met his new baby sister. He kept saying “baby?” and seemed interested but was quick to ask to be picked up by both Momma and Dadda. It will be a bit of an adjustment for him but we’re confident it will work out fine. We praise God for His wonderful kindness and mercy with such an amazing gift. It truly is a miracle everytime a living baby is brought into the world and we are awed that God would allow us the privilege of raising one of His little girls. Please pray for us as we try to raise our children in the Lord and as we try to communicate God’s beauty and fullness to them. We pray that they would both love Him always and find their satisfaction in Him, as we have. Thank you, Father!
