I am soooo happy to share that this adorable little man... Isaac Sebastian Richardson... joined the big wide world at 9:55pm on Christmas Day!! The most precious all of gifts and an answer to prayer, this little blessing came in the most beautiful, calm fashion weighing 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
And he is DIVINE. Really divine. And guess what?! He's also my Godson!! I am soooo honoured to have another little man as an important part of my life, and Liam and I are excited to be journeying through parenthood with Heather and Doug. We just adore this family so much.
This was so unbelievably heart-breaking, and such a huge shock. It was also, however, the beginning of a beautiful journey of acceptance, peace, love, and trust. Heather and Doug carried so much grace throughout their loss, and we were again blown away by the peace of God that surrounded them during such a difficult time.
Thankfully, they were blessed with another pregnancy at just the right time, and this beautiful bump - little Baby Boo - was, of course, so cherished and adored throughout the entire 9 months! This pregnancy was filled with mixed emotions - hopes, dreams, and the occasional fears. But they also had an underlying peace that all would be ok, as they were surrounded in love by their God, their families, and their friends.
And then 3 weeks after Christmas, we found ourselves in Christchurch again, having amazing newborn cuddles with a brand new BOY! The joy on his parents faces could be read a mile away and the love for him just filled their house.
Isaac is very blessed to be born into your family - we know that you will tackle the challenges of parenting head-on, and that you will give him an abundance of love and wonderful experiences throughout his life. We can't wait to have sooooo many more amazing adventures with you guys, and to watch wee Eli and wee Isaac grow up as buddies (whether they like it or not!)!
Loads of love and hugs, and plenty of smooches for my wee Godson xoxoxo
