Boj at 7!

A new discovery – February is also a Birth Month!  Most of  our family friends had new additions to their “growing” family this month.  A baby is always a blessing and we celebrate with them as they welcome the bundle of joy in their homes.

Flashback 7 years ago, I can still remember the mixed emotions we all had when our “then” baby Boj came into our lives.  Boj is a miracle boy- we prayed for him earnestly and our 11 yr old daughter would always ask specifically for the baby to be a boy.  And true enough, God did not disappoint us! But that was just the other half of the story.  In a few days, our little boy was admitted back to the hospital for abnormal bilirubin count.  simply put – my blood doesn’t match pretty well with my husband’s.  Opposites attract?  exactly, literally!  But God is faithful , Boj had a series of clinical tests and that each single moment spent  in the hospital was heart-tormenting, to say the least.  Sometimes we enjoy  the mountain-top experiences (who wouldnt, anyway?) then forget that He will still be with us even as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23:4).  I cried out Abraham’s prayer when he offered Isaac and it was answered!  The whole week we spent in the hospital 2nd wk of Feb 2005 was not only a celebration of  a new life – a physical birth that we so joyfully received. It was also a spiritual rebirth – that indeed the faith that we confess to have is real and always, I say always,  hope does not disappoint us…Just look at the miracle boy, now 🙂
