June 30th will always be one of the best days of our live. There is absolutely nothing more miraculous and awe inspiring as the birth of a new little baby. It was incredible.
Hannah was scheduled for a c-section at about 9:30 AM. I was nervous and excited and just bursting with joy at everything that was taking place. I couldn't believe this day had finally come. She was prepped and ready for surgery and together we went to the operating room. I had to wait outside the door until everything was ready to begin the surgery. I was then told to come in and the procedure began. Hannah was excellent. She had been a little nauseated from the spinal but by the time the surgery began she was doing great. I held her hand and jumped my attention back and forth between her and the operation. It was amazing to watch. Then finally that special moment happened. Joseph was born. He didn't cry much at first. They quickly cleaned him up and had him under a heat lamp which seemed like seconds. Tears welled up in my eyes as I looked at a beautiful little baby boy. I will never forget that moment. God had given to us such a wonderful gift. I held him in my arms and brought him for Hannah to see. She was so happy. She had done so well through everything.
I was soon out the door with the baby headed off to the nursery to get him weighed and bathed while Hannah was taken to the recovery room. Both grandma's and Hannah's brother and sisters all watched through the windows as Joseph got all cleaned up. It was such a special time.
Both Hannah and the baby came through just fine. It wasn't too long before Hannah could join all the excitement. Visitors soon started stopping by bringing gifts and baloons. Everyone wanted to hold this new little guy. What an exciting day it was!! A joyful memory burned deep on our hearts. Thank God for this special little boy!
