A baby girl is born!

Posted by Merle Levin on January 5, 2012

Just a quick update from an exhausted Granny. A beautiful baby girl was born this morning. She is well and healthy. Her mom Angie is still in ICU. it was a difficult birth and a second team of surgeons were called in. she is resting and still cannot see the baby, but hopefully tomorrow she will be on the mend. The exhausted grandparents are going to collapse and celebrate with a clink of bubbly.
What a day!  Thank you so much for the many responses to the post this morning.  It was amazing to receive these messages of love and prayer  all day as we sat and rocked the newborn.

Countdown to the birth

Posted by Merle Levin on January 5, 2012

In a few hours, a baby will be born. I have spent the night in prayer and preparation to meet this new soul. There are prayers and candles flickering in different parts of the world this morning as we entrust this delicate process into the hands of God. Please join us if you feel moved to.
Angela will have a full anesthetic and will need a blood transfusion after the birth, which will take place sometime after 8am this morning, Thursday January 5th.
