Joy has come...

On Friday morning at 6am our first child, Joy Lindsay Matthias was born.

She was born at home in a pool of water.

As she popped up out of the water, that was it, life changes. A new chapter starts.

I know it is Daddy's perogative to say his daughter is beautiful, and she is!

And so our journey continues.

We have had a lot of support from family and friends and we're very very thankful to God.

I am so happy for Esther and you. Joy is beautiful. I remember reading your blog during your difficult time last year and praying for you. We had just had a son after 13 years of marriage. He's now a happy 1 year old, just started walking this week. I hope you enjoy parenthood as much as we are enjoying it,

So many people are just SO happy for you both! Friends of friends, too; all have, to a greater or lesser extent, shared some of that "journey" and have been inspired by your faith, hoped and prayed for you. God doesn't spare us pain, but we are called to "hang on in there" and trust. Joy IS beautiful. Of course Daddies are allowed to say so!!! There is so much to enjoy and look forward to!
