Welcome To The World

There are no words to describe the day we’ve had. Our baby came into the world at 10h50, weighing in at 2.9kg’s and 49cm in length, Agpar score at 1 minute past birth was 8 and at 5 minutes past birth was 9.

I’ll update more when we get home on Wednesday, and post our birth story. Just wanted to share that our miracle has arrived!

Oh and you were all wrong by the way.

Team PINK!!!! Welcome to the world Ava Grace!

    Monday’s child is fair of face,
    Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
    Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
    Thursday’s child has far to go.
    Friday’s child is loving and giving,
    Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
    But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
    Is fair and wise and good and grace

    I am so happy for you my friend!

    So glad you got to experience the wonderful miracle of adoption…
