My Birth - Chapter Eight

Eventually everyone left for the night and it was just the three of us in the room together. It was our first night as a young family together; a great night, but a really hard night.
Some time during the middle of the night one of our nurses came into the room and sat down. She told us that she was a pastor’s daughter, just like Lucy, and that her father has a brother who has downs. She then teared up and said that she couldn’t imagine life without her uncle. Now I know that God was with us that entire night, and that He is always with us, but sometimes he sends a messenger to remind us that He is there. That nurse coming into our room with that story was the first sign we received that God was there for us and that He was never going to leave us.

I love hearing all your thoughts
about our precious Lucy's birth.
I'm glad you are sharing with us
because there are some of these
things I didn't know.

Love you all,

P.S. I have been sending copies to
Grandma Briscoe. She has been so
touched by your thoughts and stories. It looks as if you are becoming the writer in the family. Have you read the stories in the folder Grandma sent you? They give a lot of insight into her childhood and life.
