This is a shot of a mom and her mom from a birth I attended last week. It was such a sweet and awesome moment. Grandma has been blind since last year after struggling with liver disease and a subsequent transplant. As her daughter greeted her that morning, there was such joy and excitement in the room as we awaited the birth of her 5th baby. Grandma held her daughter and prayed and praised God for all the blessings He has bestowed on them. It was quite moving as this family has struggled with a lot in the past several years including their 3 year struggling with leukemia (who is fully recovered and 7 years old now). It was so great to see folks who have been thru so much adversity and yet stay so completely faithful to God. They were a true inspiration to me. Oh, BTW, she had a beautiful 8 lb 14 oz baby boy. I think they named him Christian.
