Waiting for Eden

My sweet Eden Edward was born April 22nd at 10:36 am. I was with Patience the entire time. I was able to hold her hand while she brought our child into this world. What a gift in so many ways. I was grateful to spend so much time with her and her family. I felt so much a part of what was happening. They are a wonderful family. There is a part of me that doesn't want to share these moments with another, but they are not really my moments. They are hers. Eden is such a beautiful boy. He is quiet and calm and sweet. Looking at him and wondering what God has called him to do in this life was amazing.

Wow, these last couple of days have been beautiful and difficult at the same time. My joy is great, but also tempered by anothers sorrow. I'm waiting right now to go to the hospital to pick him up. I'm looking at a little less than 5 hours and I will hold him forever. Patience is looking at the same amount of time and knowing that she will lose him then. What a saddness. What a miracle that this young woman will trust me with her child. We will just walk this out and see what God has planned for us. I am so Thankful!!
