It's A Girl!

A beautiful baby girl was born to Alyssa and George only a few hours ago. Now, since she was born in Africa, she was born on February 6, that's today. But, we received the news on February 5. Strange, eh? But no matter - exciting news anyway! Here are a few pictures George sent out this morning, along with all the statistics. We are grateful to God, once again, for bringing this beautiful little life into the world safely, and for blessing their little family.

Jemimah Belle Osebreh
born at 12:19 a.m. on February 6, 2011 in Ghana, West Africa
8 pounds 8 ounces

I love this picture. She's brand-spankin'-new. I can almost smell her - how I'd love to squeeze her and kiss her! Her eyes are so big and alert - she's soaking in the face of her sweet mama, who's been waiting such a long to time to meet her. I remember well those special moments when I first met my own newborns.

Alyssa did a great job! She looks so rested and, well, relieved. She looks beautiful. I'm so glad the delivery went smoothly and quickly. She did labor all day long, but was only at the birthing clinic an hour or two before baby arrived.

Here you see Big Brother meeting Baby Sister for the first time. Arioch loves her to pieces already. He's going to make a terrific big brother. I'm sure he'll be a big help to his mother and watch out for his baby sister.
