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.

    Thank you Merle and all the kind ladies who kept us in mind during Safia’s birth! Your prayers saved my life. Safia Qt Assad-Levin is a treasure and a joy, and Dan and I are in bliss to have her in our life.

    Merle you are a fabulous mother-in-law and grandmother, your generosity knows no bounds. I do not know what I would have done without you during that month in hospital. I will never forget the healthy green salads and smoothies and all the divine treats you brought me, sparing me from having to eat the horrible hospital food, ala red viennas and polony 🙂
