Miss Madelene Kate arrived at 7:05 a.m. with a bit of drama.
We didn't make it to the hospital before she made her appearance.
In fact we altered course from our original hospital destination to our local hospital. And in God's gracious providence, we were just a mile from our local hospital when I realized that this baby was coming out. Far from the calm and peaceful delivery in the hospital with James, Madelene Kate arrived to the honking of our van as Ben tried unsuccessfully to get cars ahead of us to move.
For those who don't want the graphic details, I will include those in the next post. Mommy & Baby are healthy and happy. Madelene Kate weighed 7 lbs 3 oz and was 19 inches long. She nursed right away. She has a beautiful head of hair. And we are amazed by God's kindness.
Thank you for praying!
