“For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.” 1 Samuel 1:27
For months we have been preparing for his arrival, praying for his health and delivery, and dreaming of the time when he would finally be in our arms. I will never forget the beautiful moment when I heard his first cry.
He was born via a scheduled c-section, and I was 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant at the time. He was 18 inches long and weighed 5 lbs and 3 oz. Thank God for a healthy baby boy. By the size of my belly, the medical staff was afraid that he would be much smaller than that, but he surprised us all.
Nathaniel had some minor issues with his respiratory system, so he’s been in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, getting a little bit of help breathing, but he is doing great and will be out if the NICU very soon.
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support. Our life is starting from a brand new chapter as a family of three. We are so in love with our son, who looks just like his Daddy:) and no words can fully express how thankful we are for him.
