Our Elias William
Born 5 weeks early on Saturday suddenly, unexpectedly, a little traumatically and dramatically.
Childbirth is not pretty... But it is glorious. This little bundle of joy born too soon, yet fighting fit. Evidence that though the journey can be painful, difficult, riddled with tears, wounds, scars and doubts, the ending is beautiful... The gift is worth it. So very worth it.
God was in every bit of his arrival... The timings of events, which could have been catastrophic if things had unfolded minutes earlier, or minutes later... Perhaps I will share the story some time... For now, I'm trying to get my own head round it, and revelling in the newborn scent, the sleepy feeds, this precious little miracle gift of a boy.
Thank you to all of you have supported us so well over the past few difficult weeks.
We are here, and we can testify, as does the meaning of our littlest boy's name...
The Lord is God!
