On Wednesday, 17 April, after an unusually long {but gentle} labour, our baby boy arrived, with the help of our two midwives.

The afternoon of his birth, we gathered the children in our room and Brian gave a blessing, we sang “happy birthday” and blew out the candle on his cake.  He will never remember that day, but the rest of us surely will.  This family tradition lets them know that each of them was welcomed in the same way, that babies are gifts.  The first words spoken to each of them are “Welcome to our family.  We’re so glad you’re here”  He is the delight of us all.
