The Miracle of New Life

August 7, 2015

The miracle of new life… the birth of a child… one of God’s greatest gifts to us.

12 days ago I left Saudi, indefinitely, so that I could be home with my family for my brothers wedding and for the birth of my new niece or nephew.

Well, I’m so grateful I was home!! I am blessed beyond measure to have been able to witness the birth of my precious, beautiful, perfect new niece… Kaylia Brielle. Born August 7, 2015 at 8:49AM… she entered the world rapidly, opened her eyes wide, started to look around and cried… and now my heart belongs to two absolutely darling little nieces!

When I think of the science behind the creation of a child… the millions of cells the divide and replicate and grow to form the perfect little being that was born this morning… it fills me with awe. How blessed are we to have a healthy new child enter our lives?! Chances are so high that something could have gone wrong at some point in that delicate process… yet, thanks to God, she was healthy, and we pray she continues to stay healthy!

My oldest niece, not sure what to think of her little baby sister at first… rapidly adjusted to the big sister role. Although she hasn’t fully grasped how fragile the little darling is compared to her!

Love my family… more than words!
