It’s a Girl!

Yesterday, our first baby was born at Mercy House via an emergency c-section.

Mom and baby are doing great. Thank you, God! We are so thankful that Quinter was rescued from her desperate life. Her birthing story might have ended much different if she was still in the slums…

Please keep this young, new mommy and baby in your prayers!

    Awesome! One of my facebook friends helped with the tea while you were there and she mentioned the young lady was in labor yesterday morning. I’m so happy to know (and see!) the final outcome.

    Congratulations! Do you feel kinda like a new mom? I’ll think of you that way, with each birth you announce. :) I shudder to think of how it would have ended in the slums, and that makes this all the more joyful! Praise God

    Thank you for sharing what you do, Kristen. For continuing to challenge us to seek God and have our hearts broken for the things which break His. And for allowing us to give Him thanks when we get to celebrate His blessings – like these girls and their children.
