Welcome Little One

Not an easy entrance
But with a little grace
Safe

Not expected so soon
But with a little grace
Perfect

Not home yet
But with a little grace
Soon

Last week I got the news that my niece, who was expecting her second child in June, was admitted to the hospital. It was likely she would be there, on strict bed rest, until the birth of the baby. We didn’t know it would be so soon. On Sunday, the doctor decided it was time to deliver the baby, even though it was ten weeks early. Waiting would be dangerous for the health of mother and baby. At 11:03 the sweet baby was born, weighing 3 pounds 10 ounces and 16 inches long. She will spend weeks in the NICU, but she is breathing on her own, has 10 little fingers and 10 little toes- perfect. Her mama is doing well, too. Her family can hardly wait to see her. By the way, her middle name is Grace.

    The poem and the sentiment are both beautiful and perfect… or dare I say, graceful. That’s my daughter’s middle name and I hope that it carries so much beautiful meaning. Thinking of your family, but sounds like she is already doing so well for such a little peanut.

    What a gift that mother and daughter are both well. Grace is a lovely name for someone arrived so early. Prayers for continued health for all.

    Congratulations on the new member of your family! I like how you repeat the word grace in your poem and is part of her name.
