Today, we were invited to celebrate our friends’ twins’ birthdays. Archie and Ethan are little miracle babies. Their mum and dad endured a difficult pregnancy, full of uncertainties – they even faced the possibility they could lose one or both babies. These babies were covered in prayer by many people and God brought these precious lives through various life-saving interventions, out of danger, and they were delivered safely a few weeks early – tiny, but fighting and stronger than expected. After only one week, mum and new twin babies were allowed home. How amazing is God?! He continues to answer prayer so mightily! Today we got to celebrate their first birthday and thank God for their lives.
Asa was given this adorable little outfit by his great Auntie Sarah. I love the slogan, ‘Perfect Little Person’. People may look at our baby and see a chromosome disorder, but we look and see Asa – our gorgeous, funny, happy little boy. He isn’t perfect because we all have sin in our life, but he is perfectly ours, perfectly formed and perfectly loved by a Creator God who doesn’t make mistakes.
Asa loved watching the other children bouncing away.
Evie is Archie and Ethan’s big sister – she is almost three. I’ve heard it said that ‘friends don’t count chromosomes’ – Evie certaintly isn’t bothered as she cuddles Asa and plants a gentle kiss on his forhead!
