Noah Winthrop Ellis made his appearance into the world 25 hours ago at 1:04 am on 4/8/13. He weighed in at 6lbs and 6 oz. and 17 1/4 inches long. I was in labor all day yesterday and arrived at the hospital around 8:30 PM to dilate from a 3 to a 5 unmedicated, and prepped for a c-section by some of the most amazing people I will have ever have met in my entire life.
As most of you know Baby Noah had a few complications and we did everything we could to prepare ourselves for his arrival. With that being said our little miracle arrived and they did everything they could to help his little lungs.
God had different plans for my son, and shortly after he was born he went home to be with The Lord where he will forever watch down over Thomas and I.
Those precious moments we got to spend with our son are priceless. Noah was baptized and we spent the rest of his life loving and embracing this little fellow who made us parents and filled our hearts with more joy and love than we could have possibly ever have imagined.
Thomas and I know that God has a plan and purpose for everything in life. We are holding tight to our faith. Our son did not lead a life of pain and suffering, and instead is smiling down from heaven, with his grandpa Carter, watching over us, waiting for us to be reunited again as a family.
One thing I know for sure is that Thomas and I made a very precious, handsome little man. He was born with a head full of hair, and features from both his mommy and daddy. He truly was blessed with "the best of both worlds."
Life will never be the same from here on out. Thomas and I were are blessed to even be able to conceive this child, who was very much wanted, and loved before we even found out we were pregnant.
We would like to take a chance and thank everyone, from the bottom of our hearts, for all the prayers, thoughts, and kind words as we go through and will continue to travel down this road we are on. It's not going to be easy, but with God on our side we will make it through. We may not have Noah here on earth, but we do have him in our hearts and memories forever. The day of his birth will always be a day to celebrate and rejoice the birth of our dear son, who taught us so much about life during his short period of time he spent with us.
Thomas & Sandy Ellis
