Last Monday, my world changed. After some complications with the end of my wife's pregnancy, it was decided it was best to encourage the labor early. At 8:48 pm, my dear, sweet Catherine Elizabeth was born!
While I have been looking forward to being a father for a long time, words cannot explain the joy I felt with God's precious gift to my wife and me.
While she was in the womb, I would tell her that "Daddy loves you!" When she was first born and screaming while the nurses were cleaning her by my wife's bed with her eyes closed, I repeated the often said line. She stopped crying, turned towards me and opened her eyes. She grabbed onto my finger with all of her hand, and I was in heaven. She is my daughter, and I love my precious girl.
I have never experienced this type of love. I want to hold her forever and share with her how much I love her. My wife and I are now home, and both mother and daughter are doing well.
I look forward to getting to know this very special girl.
Thank you to my readers for your patience, and I look forward to posting again on the topics we all care passionately about.
