A Blessing from Heaven

Last Sunday night, Leah called and said that she was having mild contractions about four to six minutes apart. Later that night she called again and said they had become less regular (not completely truthful, they just didn't want us to worry or drive through the night!). Linda and I finished packing and got a good night's rest (well sort of). Monday morning we packed the MDX and headed south arriving at Leah and Kyle's about four pm. They had just taken a 3.2 mile walk! Leah was continuing to have regular and stronger contractions after dinner, so they headed off to the hospital at about 8:30pm. At 1:48am Tuesday morning, our 5th grandchild arrived:   Emery Katherine!

Needless to say, Linda and I are overjoyed as this little blessing from heaven arrived healthy, safe and sound.

Thank you so much for all your prayers and support for Leah and Kyle as we awaited this beautiful little girl.   We are overjoyed to have been there and part of her arrival. Leah, Kyle and little 'e' are checking out of the hospital and coming home today! Welcome Home Emery!
