Jemimah Rose

I can hardly believe it was two weeks yesterday since our dear little girl was born. The time has just flown by! First of all I want to thank all of you who have kept us in your prayers! It has meant so much to me.
 The LORD truly blessed me throughout the labor experience. It is a long story, but since I was late my doctor decided to induce labor. As I felt labor begin I read over the Scriptures I had written down and prayed the verses. This really helped to strengthen and encourage me for the time ahead.

I was in labor 12 hours, and everything went really well. I had been praying that I would be able to go without an epidural and the LORD was so good as to bring me through without one. At the point when I was ready to give birth I was very weak and tired. I was worried I would not be able to, but at that time I called on Jesus and within minutes our baby was born!

Adam was with me the entire time and was an immense encouragement. He would cheer me on and would remind me that I was making progress.

We named our little girl Jemimah Rose. The LORD gave Adam the name Jemimah before we were even married. : ) We knew if we were ever blessed with a little girl her name would be Jemimah. Jemimah means dove and was the name of Job's eldest daughter after God restored his wealth (Job 42:14).
Jemimah weighed 7 lbs. 5.8 oz. and was 19.5 inches long. I cannot begin to describe the delight I felt to see her for the first time! After dreaming about her for nine months, wondering what she would be like, I was thrilled to hold her in my arms at last!!
She is a very sweet baby and loves to be held and cuddled!
Jemimah all bundled up to go out. I thought her expression was adorable. : )
 I am so grateful for our dear little Jemimah and this blessed opportunity to be a mother!

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13
