Last night at 10:18, Kathy gave birth to our first child, Lena Esther Hamilton! Lena is a beautiful, healthy baby who stole our hearts from the moment that we first laid eyes on her. Kathy and I will be staying here at St. Vincent Hospital for the next few days as Kathy recovers from her C-section surgery.
I will continue this BlogSpot post throughout our stay here at St. Vincent (we've been here for 50+ hours so far), uploading additional photos and telling Lena’s story. The hospital’s WiFi network is not playing nice with my computer’s security programs, so I will add each section (including this opening) and a few select photos each time that I am able to connect online.
Thank you, friends, for your prayers and supportive words as we watched God miraculously move to bring our baby daughter, Lena, into this world!
9/13/11 Tuesday update:
For the remainder of our nearly 101 hour stay in the hospital, I didn't find a good opportunity to continue this post as I had planned. In fact, Kathy and I just got home from the hospital and have put baby Lena down in her new bassinet for the first time!! I'll post a brand new BlogSpot post here early next week.
