My sister gave birth tonight to a little girl, Morgan Leigh Meredith! She is a tiny one – weighing 5 lbs. 13 oz. She is beautiful and has a full head of dark hair. I was honored to be in the delivery room this time along with Greg, Ang’s husband. What a miracle to observe and what a cherished bond I have with baby Morgan.
I was so worried that I was going to miss her delivery. Her due date was June 14 but we knew she would arrive early. However, I leave Saturday for a week for trip and was praying fervently that I wouldn’t miss this important family moment. When I went with my sister today to her weekly check-in, at first it appeared that Morgan would not be coming in the next couple of days. So I was preparing myself for that. Then the doctor came back in after doing a little test and said to her surprise and ours that Ang’s water had broke. So it was time to have a baby! Ang was crying but I was! I was so elevated and overcome with thankfulness that I would not miss this. I had to go outside while Ang finished her paper work because the tears were coming.
We went to the hospital around 3:30 or so and things progress throughout the afternoon and evening until Morgan came.
Morgan is a little early and little small. She is having to work a little harder than the nurses would like for her oxygen. Although they say it is not serious, we would all appreciate your prayers that she will develop strong.
PS – I’ll have pictures posted soon before I leave town.
