My prayer for Caedmon today on his first day of Kindergarten... august 19th 2009
I immediately called Kevin and shared the news with tears in my eyes. While he drove home, I scurried around the house, throwing the things together that I had already begun packing. I'm so glad that I had most everything already packed....my mind just couldn't think at that moment. Kaiya commented that I "looked like I was in a hurry!"
We picked up Caedmon from school, dropped the kids at my mom's and headed straight to Anderson. If I could have sprouted wings and flown at that moment...I would have! When we were 20 minutes away, we came upon an accident...traffic was at a halt. We sat there forever it seemed. I finally said a prayer "God please help us through this!". Immediately, the traffic started to move. "Thank you, Lord!!!" I should have prayed sooner!
We got to the hospital and were taken right up to see our new daughter.
5 pounds 15 ounces 18 1/2 inches of sweetness
The rest of the evening was spent holding our sweet little daughter and getting to know her. What an incredible blessing it was to get to see and hold her on her birth date...to stay right by her side and know she was ours...forever. We felt so privileged and blessed to be able to have our own room at the hospital and care for our beautiful Luca Bella ourselves.
"Those who sow in tears, will reap with shouts of joy!"
"those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing!
