After weeks of anticipation, my adorable niece finally made her debut this afternoon. My sister had been having Braxton Hicks contractions for several weeks, which caused me to stay a few extra days in FL last month. I was hoping and praying that I would be there when she was born. Being away from family is the hardest when you miss out on major life events. But I was able to be present in the delivery room via FaceTime. It was AMAZING!

My sister, Christen, was a champ. I got a call at 6:30 this morning that she was headed to the hospital. My mom and my sister Melinda did a wonderful job keeping me updated. We thought it would be a long day of labor, but once things started progressing, it was like the fast and furious. Melinda FaceTimed me and I got to witness one of God’s greatest miracles enter the world. Everyone is safe and healthy, and we are thankful for that.

In our family, we do not take for granted the gift of life. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”
James 1:17 NKJV. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of sweet Chelsea Jo.
