MY POSTS FROM THE HEART
“It takes a village” includes the network of relationships and values that connect us and bind us together”
Having babies and raising them, takes a team. As the proverb goes, “It takes a village”. The Moolman family took this to heart when grandma and husband, Francois, gathered to cheer on the birth of Wian-Roux. Francois’s parents joined the family a little later, to say hello to their new flame-haired grandson. The whole family prayed over this little boy, and their loving prayers showed when he was brought into the world.
Sometimes a mother is lucky. Sometimes, despite doubts and minor setbacks, the birth goes smoothly – almost exactly as planned. So it was when the Holtzhausen family welcomed Gertjan into the world, their second child, and second unicorn birth. With Gran, Aunt and Big Sis standing by to meet him, and Dad lending a well-practiced hand, as he had with their firstborn, Gertjan’s birth was a truly special family moment.read more

As we are preparing for the birth of our children, most of us have very set ideas or plans for these sacred moments. Most of us don’t like change and almost all of us hate it when things don’t go the way WE planned.
