Maggie is Born!!
Hi everyone! I’m Kate’s friend Meghan, and I am SO honored and excited to share with you the great news that Maggie Stuart has finally arrived!
After 41 weeks of pregnancy, induction, and 30 hours of labor, a healthy and cute Margaret Frances Stuart arrived at noon on the dot, today (February 24), weighing 7 pounds/7 ounces and measuring 21.25 inches in length. The Stuarts are rejoicing, and Kate is on the road to recovery.
If you know Kate and JD at all, then I don’t have to tell you what an incredible journey of faith, hurt, hope, and love they have been on over the past several years. I met Kate at work almost four years ago (wow), and have admired her since day one – not just for her amazing blogging skills (because that’s obvious) but for her amazing tenacity and perseverance in everything she does. She has been more of a role model for me than I think she realizes.
Although I am not a parent yet, I can only imagine the joy that must accompany the birth of one’s child. I am so very happy for Kate and JD, and would like to leave you all with this verse I stumbled on the other day.
I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD.
-1 Samuel 1:27-28
