The road to recovery has been bathed in God’s mercies, but none more precious than the birth of our little granddaughter, Arden Olivia James-Rodriguez. She was born this past Saturday night, May 17, at 11:24pm.
It was the second time Frank and I completely lost our hearts over a baby girl.
I was so afraid my surgery was going to make us miss being with our daughter Allison to support her when she gave birth—either because I was not well enough or because our timing was off. But by God’s grace we were there in plenty of time to support Alli and welcome Arden. I was with Alli when she delivered, and she was a total champ.
We think our little granddaughter is a beauty and that Alli and Tony will be great parents.
Thanks to Amy Lauger for posting our updates here on WhitbyForum and to Alli for posting the links on FaceBook through my surgery and the challenging weeks that followed. Frank and I are so thankful for your prayers and notes of encouragement. You’ll never know how much they have meant to us.
I still have a long way to go, so please do continue to pray!
