The Madson twins, Julia and Maria, were welcomed into our world last night! When I saw the photo of them holding hands, the tears inevitably flowed, especially knowing little Maria only stayed with us a mere two hours. And yet, those two hours were a gift to her family members, who had been prepared for her shortcut to heaven. What a relief to know that Mommy Roxanne seems to be doing well and that little Julia is healthy.
Here’s the “official” report from Daddy Brian:
“Big sister Julie Hope was born at 5:52 weighing 5 lbs 6 oz and is 18 inches long. Maria Faith was born 6:01 weighing 3 lbs 13 and is 16 inches long. Roxanne did a great job as she always has and everything went smooth. Both girls were held and loved by grandmas and grandpas, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, and of course mom and dad. Maria Faith was baptized and confirmed by Father Bachmeier. Maria Faith went to our Heavenly Father while in Grandma Janet’s arms after being with us for less than two hours. Father Gunwall led us in prayer. I miss her but I know she is in heaven and will be watching over us.We appreciate all your support and prayers for our family.”
