I truly believe that every baby is a blessing and a gift. This little girl embodies that fully. Her father was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer shortly after they found out that they were expecting a baby to add to their family. He spent more than 30 days in the hospital and then traveled from Oklahoma to California to fight the biggest fight of his life. Baby Naomi’s mommy was working full time in Oklahoma, and traveling back and forth to California to be with her husband for treatments while carrying this little blessing all the while. A few days before Miss Naomi made her grand entrance, they received the news that Daddy was cancer free!
When you are faced with the truth of mortality, you are often opened up to the beauty and blessings all around you in ways you were never able to before. Although it is a difficult time and probably much more than you care to comprehend, the clarity you are given is a gift. Those sweet moments with your baby will be made all that more sweet and the difficult times will be not so trying.
