BabyMax1.0 — She’s HERE!

Just a quick update to let you know that Nathan and Melanie’s little girl was born safely by C-Section this morning a little before 2 a.m. She is healthy and in the NICU as is the hospital’s procedure prior to 36 weeks. We’re waiting for Nathan and Melanie to have a blog post after they get a few hours of sleep :-).

Rejoicing in Jesus,

  4. Praise the Lord for His wonderful gift!

    What exciting news! I’m so happy she is well. Prayers for a speedy recovery for Melanie. Congratulations!

  5. What thrilling news! God is so good!
    I have followed you since your little Susannah Joy – that is the name we had chosen, and used, for our daughter too, so I think of you often.
    Now you have this new little girl given to you by the Lord – safely and in God’s perfect timing and provision. Praing that she will grow strong quickly and that you will soon be home altogether!
    Praying God’s rich and continued blessing on you all.

  6. Do you hear that? Listen carefully…If you turn your ears to the south you might hear it better…Hear it now? That’s the sound of 10 little L’s jumping up and down and cheering, 1 littlest L crying, and a Mommy and Daddy L praising the Lord!
    Benjamin is extra excited because today is his birthday 🙂
    The children were sitting in the dining room playing games and reading and I walked in and said, “Guess what Susannah Joy got today?” They looked at me and immediately knew! 🙂 I said, “A baby sister” 🙂
    We’ll continue to pray that your sweet little girl will be healthy, for a good recovery for Melanie, and that you will all 3 be able to go home together soon.

  7. Congratulations to all of you—what a hard road these past two years have been. May this little girl be a blessing to all she meets. I’ll bet all the proud aunts and uncles will be standing in line to hold her! Looking forward to the whole story and all the stats!
    In His love,

    Like so many others, I’ve been checking the blog in my spare moments–hoping for updates! This morning I was thrilled to see the news!! I thought of you on Good Friday, the bittersweet anniversary of Susannah Joy’s arrival. We’ve were praying for strength as you braved yet another pregnancy, with the roller coaster of emotions that it was bound to bring. Your example of courage and steadfast hope in the Lord is SUCH a witness to countless onlookers. We love the Maxwell family and have received such encouragement in what (we believe) life as a Christian family is supposed to look like–thanks for giving us the ongoing inspiration that it REALLY CAN be done! We rejoice with you, Nathan and Melanie, over the arrival of this precious, precious, PRECIOUS gift! You will continue to be in our prayers as you adjust in the days ahead. Many blessings,
    Lisa and family
    P.S.–Sarah, we are praying for another book in the Moody family series SOON!–we gobbled up the other ones and are going through withdrawals! Take your time of course, but PLEASE hurry!

  9. Praise God! So glad to hear Baby Girl Maxwell is here safe and healthy! Waiting anxiously for all the wonderful details! Can’t wait to hear how God worked in and through all of this! We’ll continue to pray for strength and healing for Melanie, and growth and developement for Baby. What a healing balm it is to hold your sweet little baby in your arms! We pray her stay in the NICU will be VERY short! Praying for wisdom for drs and nurses and staff as well!
    Rejoicing with you!!!!

  32. We rejoice with you in the joy of God’s precious gift of another little girl to give to Him for His purposes in this world. May her life be long… and lived for the glory of the Lord… and be every bit as useful as the life of little Susannah in being a channel of blessing to many though Susannah’s life was shorter here on the earth….
