The Arrival of a Little Miracle

Announcing the arrival of the ever precious Keila Hiu Yan Montierth on August 10, 2009! Having dropped over 3 weeks early, she kept her family anxiously waiting for her appearance. Every doctor visit, each arrhythmic contraction and twinges had her parents wondering if this was the day. Ten days before Keila was due the Dr. DeSalvo asked how Mama was, and in a sudden fit of tears, she explained that the last 3 weeks she could hardly sleep, let alone function due to pelvic pain. As luck would have it, the maternity ward was practically empty with no scheduled inductions. Mama was offered to celebrate a birthday that afternoon! In a state of shock, Papa was called home to grab the bags while Mama went straight to the hospital. Isaac camped out with the Bakers and had a blast. By 3:21 in the afternoon, after 4 hard contractions Keila was laid on her Mama's belly crying out the indignities of being born in a cold bright world. Aside from a short trip back to the hospital due to jaundice, Keila and Mama are home and doing well. Thanks to all who have offered help, prayers and support for the arrival of a beautiful daughter of God.
