my heart sings with joy

I received the most incredible news last night. A lady in Johannesburg came across my blog toward the end of last year and read my testimony about my infertility struggle, my journey and the miraculous news of my pregnancy. She herself was going through a similar struggle, many failed infertility treatments and at her wits end. My story inspired her and she made contact with me. I spoke her through my journey, how I changed my mind set, how I managed to let go of that control and hand it all over to our all powerful healer, Jesus and how I kept up the faith despite what doctors, friends and family said. We kept regular contact, I would check up on her and her progress, and her with me.

My hearts SINGS with joy to hear that she is PREGNANT! Naturally! After handing everything over to God. So incredibly happy for you Dale! I know that your story will now inspire many! Praise God for your miracle.

introducing Olivia Rose de Lange

She is here.

Our precious baby girl, Olivia Rose was born on 20 February 2014 at 09:05 weighing 3.2 KG's. She arrived two weeks early- I had to have a C-section as at our last scan her cord was wrapped around her little head twice. Natural birth was possible, but not recommended. We opted for a C-section as all I wanted was for the safe delivery of our precious miracle and thank God we did, because when they took her out the cord was wrapped four times around her head!? Our doctor said its a first, never seen that before! So thank God for modern technology. And thank God for the safe arrival of our darling Olivia Rose.

It is so true what moms say, you cannot describe the love you have for your baby, no words could possibly express it. You have to experience it. And it is so true! I am so incredibly grateful that I get to experience this beautiful, overflowing, all powerful love. It is magical. All consuming! Beautiful!

Here she is, our beautiful miracle.
