Baby* L 4 months
We were so anxious to meet our little princess and on October 27 she finally arrived. I held our little miracle that we had prayed and waited for. Then the Doctor held up her umbilical cord, in it was a large knot. She held it up and ever so slightly pulled on the ends and the knot tightened, choking all the blood out of it. We then realized how close we had been to losing her! At any point during the pregnancy or during the delivery that cord could have tightened and we would not be holding this beautiful little girl.
With all of the medical advancements of today we still had no control over anything. Only God knew all along what was happening and I am so thankful that He kept her safe.
The Psalmist stated it correctly when he wrote:
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
