" Elijah - A Miracle "


Elijah James O'Gwynn

























Meet Baby Elijah........our miracle from God! He was born yesterday to my nephew Greg and his wife Melanie. They have been trying for 13 years to have a child! After trying everything, including several In Vitro sessions, by the prayers of many and the grace of God, they have a son! He is the first O'Gwynn male born in our family in 39 years! Welcome to a world of love for you baby boy! We have waited a long time for you to join us!!

He is precious and the long wait can only make him extra special. I see severe spoiling in his future by an certain aunt.

Congratulations to you, "Aunt" Carol, and would you please send my warmest regards to the O'Gwnynn family, too?

What an amazing blessing the Lord has bestowed upon them--a first-born son to carry on the O'Gwynn family name, in the tradition that has been handed down from generation to generation, since the beginning of time.

The Lord has smiled upon their little family with His infinite love, and tiny Elijah, whose very name means: "my God is the Lord", will bring his entire family closer to the Lord. They will continually bless Him with their lips for the miracle of Elijah's birth.

I am SO happy for all of your family, Carol. It's such a joyous occasion when a new baby is added to the family! Speaking of baby...you should see how much my four-month-old grandson, Noah has grown. To see some recent photos, I wish you would please take a minute to visit my "family" blog, "Cynde's Daybook".

Have a nice day,
Cynde

How precious..I know how you feel. It took my son and his wife awhile and lots of treatments and the loss of a boy before they had their little girl. Life is so precious. Best wishes.

welcome baby boy - what a lovely name Elijah is.

When I posted about Tim Gautreaux's new post this morning I was thinking about you and wondering if you knew of his books. Glad you commented.
