Newborn | Ruan

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin…… ” – Zechariah 4:10

Meet little Ruan. He started out as a teeny weeny 1,2kg little fighter born at 31 weeks, who’s been in NNICU for 58 days. When I met him he was still very small but he has more than doubled in his birth weight.  His homecoming was antispated with lots of joy and a little bit of nervousness by his big brother Liam as he bravely locked the grocery cupboard, hid the key and announced that it’s just in case his baby brother wants to eat his sweets 🙂

This little man has already started his work on earth and as Zechariah says the Lord is rejoicing in this small beginning…..

I had worked so hard on breathing and relaxing, but when the contractions came it was so crushing, all I could do was ride it out and wait for it to be over.
