God Led Us Along

All right, here is that other huge praise item that Ken & I realized the day before Baby Faith arrived ... though it pales in comparison to the even more incredible miracle of Faith Mattaya in person!

We praise God for His assurance that our decision to take our birth to Winnipeg for induction was His leading. We realized that God's plan for us to have mid-wifery care was only up until that point - now it was His will for us to go to strange Dr.'s in a strange hospital etc.

How did we come by that assurance? Well, had we not been with the mid-wives in Brandon, we would have been with one of the Brandon doctors, none of whom are favorable to natural birth - basically prone to c-sections in all but the perfect scenarios. They would have considered themselves the end of the line for us, our only option would have been section.

So going through the early induction in Winnipeg was necessary & God led. It gave us peace as we faced a difficult situation ... peace knowing our God was in this. Of course, we knew that all along, but realizing His hand in this added an extra measure of comfort...

...as did the assurance of the "prayers of the saints" - we knew so many of you were watching and waiting with us in prayer! Thank you so much! May God bless you also.

Praise God for His unfailing LOVE! We are so excited to hear that "Babe" is a girl. We know she has been loved since you knew of her and she will continue to be loved and protected by all, especially her big brothers. Faith, is so fitting. Congratulations and may God continue to bless you!
