It's a girl!!!

Our neighbour / friend Monique has a daughter! After a very difficult pregnancy of 34 weeks with a lot of problems and uncertainty whether the little one would make it she gave birth to a little girl. Her name is Dominique. She's premature, but everything seems to be okay. She weighs 1350 grams (almost 3 lbs).

Monique was admitted to hospital last Monday. Because her placenta didn't work properly she couldn't carry the baby until 40 weeks. This afternoon she had a C-section. Around dinnertime she called us, still a bit groggy but very happy!

Welcome to the world, Dominique!
Blessings on your day of birth
Your cycle begins anew
May happiness and good fortune
Be with you your whole life through!


Update Oct. 21: Here is a picture of Dominique next to Rons hand; we made it this afternoon.


  1. Oh, praise most high! Brightest blessings in Her name and from my true heart.

  2. I'm so happy for Monique and wish the girl the very best future - thanks for sharing this happiness!
