“Welcome Home Baby Girl.”

A new sound filled the home of Melinda and Clyde this evening: the tiny squeak of a hungry Abby. Melinda stood over her precious daughter, lifted her out of her car seat, and whispered “welcome home baby girl.” It was like angels were singing harmony behind her. Melinda pulled sweet Abby close to cuddled her face-t0-face. She kissed her and was lost in the moment–Abby was home. She was never expected to be there. But she is. What story she has already been to each and every one of us that God is God: and He loves us. It’s amazing that this child has touched so many. 4th day birthday celebrated and well into her 5th day of life, the Gordons are smiling from ear to ear exhausted with love.

Clyde was as proud as a dad could be, Ashlin was ready to be the big sister she had been dreaming of, and life has begun it’s next chapter of grace.

This is Kellie, the weekend day-shift nurse. I’ve been checking for your posting all day in great anticipation! I’m so proud of you guys! Such a beautiful day to welcome home a beautiful family. I have been praising God all day that he would care so sweetly for us, that in His perfect timing, He would bless so many, so powerfully.
